I am interested in coaching. What do I need to do and what are the requirements?
We are always looking for people interested in helping to coach our teams. 

If you are interested be sure to check the box on the registration form. Once team numbers are known after registration you may be contacted to be offered a coaching position. 

NOTE: Checking the box does NOT guarantee that you will coach a team. 

We do not require formal certification to coach our teams. The only requirement is that every coach have a criminal reference check run and filed with Minesing Minor Ball.
How far do teams travel for games?
T-Ball and Local Tyke teams play all of their games in Minesing. 

The Travelling Tyke team(s) and Mite and higher play their games in the Georgian Bay Minor Softball League (GBMSL) and will travel to local communities. All games are in the north half of Simcoe County. The furthest communities from Minesing are Toanche, Port McNicoll, Victoria Harbour and Coldwater. 

Seasons generally consist of 10 games so travel would be required for generally 5 of those games. Where multiple Minesing teams are in a division the travel will be reduced further as some away games would be in Minesing against the other team(s).
We are unable to make a game/practice what should I do?
If you cannot make a scheduled game or practice be sure to notify your coach as early as possible. 

Early notification for games allows the coach time to call up players from lower divisions if needed.
My child is interested in umpiring what do I need to do?
We are always looking for kids to assist with umpiring games. If your child is interested you can contact umpires@baseball.minesing.ca. 

All umpires are paid for umpiring games and training/certification is paid for by Minesing Minor Ball.
When will we know our tournament dates?
Tournament dates are set by the league at the year end meeting of each season. This means that tournament dates are known well in advance of registration. 

When registering please take note of the tournaments (dates are included in registration package) and plan accordingly.
We are away for our tournament. What should we do?
Ensure that you make your coach aware as early as possible so that the coach can make arrangements. Every team has the ability to 'call up' players from the lower level team.
