Association Boundaries and Player Releases

KMBA applies the BC Minor Baseball Association rules and regulations regarding player movement requests. Players who reside within our approved boundary area are expected to register with KMBA and play within their age Division as long as we offer that level of baseball within our program.  (click to see map)

If you are considering moving from another boundary area, or wish to apply for a release to register outside our area, please review the BC Minor Baseball rules and regulations prior to submitting an application.


Registration Fee Refunds

In order to initiate a refund for league registration fees at Kelowna Minor Baseball, parents must advise their Division Director of their intent to withdraw.  The date of this request will be the date used to process any reductions to the refund.

Refunds for Winter Indoor Program:

A full refund will be available, less a $25.00 adminstration fee, up until January 10th, 2010. After January 10th, 2010 there will be no refund. Exceptions to this policy may be granted by the KMBA Board based on additional information submitted by the requester.

Refund Reduction Timeline

  • Registration until April 15 - $25 administration fee
  • April 16 until first game - 50% of registration fees refunded if uniform turned in
  • after first game - no refunds
  • exceptions to this policy may be granted by the KMBA Board based on additional information submitted by the requester.

Player Promotion Guidelines (2010)

The policies and practices listed below were developed to assist parents, coaches and administrators in understanding the process followed during a play-up request.  Conditions and minimum standards are also described.

1.) Under-age players wishing to participate in an advanced division must:

  • be of second-year age in their registered division
  • posses exceptional skill, maturity and understanding of the game when compared to players of their own age
  • be able to perform and conduct themselves at a level which surpasses the average second-year player of the intended division.

2.   Players interested in playing up will only be permitted to enter the evaluation phase if divisional wait-lists have been satisfied and vacant room still exists on teams. KMBA will cease processing wait-list registrants two days prior to the first evaluation date for that division.

3. A parent's interest in coaching or managing at a certain level does not necessarily qualify their child to participate in that division.

4.    Exceptions to this practice can be made by the KMBA board of directors, through a letter of appeal.

It's important to remember, if permission is granted for a player to play in a higher division, that player will not be permitted to play Allstar (summer) baseball back at the lower Division. They will remain at the higher Division for the full year.
