Baseball Registration – 2021
REGISTRATION for NEZ BASEBALL for the 2021 Season is now open.
Update: March 25, 2021:
Spring is here and we are looking forward to ball season. We were disappointed but not surprised with the announcement on Monday from AHS and the Provincial Government that stage 3 openings are being postponed indefinitely.
Spring camp and AA/AAA Padres tryouts are ongoing and those teams will soon be finalized. Information regarding registration payments and volunteer signups for Padres players will be sent to you once the teams are formed. Have a great season!
For our NEZ Community Baseball Program, we are going to hold back opening day until May 10. We won’t accept payments or signup volunteers until closer to the end of April. As soon as those dates are set we will let you know.
Our hope and our plan is to have a full season but we don’t want to collect registration fees until we are sure AHS will allow us to play games. In the meantime, as you register we will credit your account with any money we had on hold from last year.
We are working on Covid safety plans so we can keep everyone as safe as possible. We will likely not want players to share helmets so you may want to go ahead and purchase one for your child. You can find these for $25.00 to $40.00 at Canadian Tire, Walmart or various sports stores. Last year the Padres teams did a great job with disinfecting equipment. We will follow that path this year in our Community program.
Stay well and stay tuned…..we will update everyone once we know more.
Update March 4, 2021: Thanks and welcome to all players who have registered for the 2021 season. With the Government of Alberta and AHS update on March 1 we are still in a bit of a “what’s going to happen” mode. We do not want to collect registration fees and then not have a season. We are still digging out of last years’ paperwork and payment tracking mess!
We are planning for and expecting to play a full season of baseball. There may have to be some safety modifications but we plan to have games, practices, playoffs, skills days and hopefully tournaments.
We are going to hold off collecting registration payments and signing up volunteers until as late as possible. We expect another update from the Government by March 22. If we are OK to go ahead with the season we will open up the payment portal in Ramp and you can go back into your account and pay be credit card. You will also be able to e-transfer the fee and we will apply it to your account. Or you can pay in person by debit, credit card or cash at the in-person registration dates at the NEZ Office.
The in-person dates are planned for March 27 and 28. Then again either March 31 or April 3. We will send out volunteer shift choices for you to speed up the process in the office.
For those who have not yet registered please do so asap. If you have funds on hold with us from last season we will credit your account and let you know once that has been done.
We will still have time to set up teams, arrange for coaches, do schedules and be ready to start the season on May 3.
All players must register on-line. Register in your age category for Community Baseball. Players who are selected to play on a AA or AAA team will pay the additional AA/AAA fee at that time.
We are planning a full season but because of the uncertainty that is Covid we are not accepting registration fees at this time. You will be notified how to pay your fee once we are sure that the season will go ahead.
You must have a current Community League Membership from your home Community League prior to registering. If you don’t have one, you can purchase one online at: https://efcl.org/membership
All players MUST be registered on-line prior to tryouts.

You MUST attend an in-person registration before your childs’ registration is complete. You will need to provide your Community League Membership Card, sign up for your volunteer shift (and leave a $300.00 deposit cheque) and if you did not pay online, you can pay at the in-person.
