The Salmon Arm Minor Baseball Association (SAMBA) executive would like to welcome you to another season! We wanted to share a few things to familiarize you with baseball in Salmon Arm. The spring league season typically goes from late April to the end of June.
Elk’s Park is managed by caretakers who appreciate dogs to be on leashes, and children to be monitored in washrooms.
All Players will be receiving take home jerseys.
Salmon Arm has had strong showings at zone and provincial championships for a number of years, in 2014 the PeeWee’s qualified for the provincials and became the semi-finalists, and in in 2018 the PeeWee A team went all the way and to become the 2018 Provincial Champions (See photos on the News page). For those seeking a higher level of play, All-Star (Summer ball) try outs occur in June. Teams are chosen for each division before the end of June. Practices are usually twice a week with tournament play on some weekends. This usually includes camping and is much fun! More information will be posted in May.
Those interested in coaching all-star baseball need to apply in writing to by May 30. NCCP qualifications are required. Please see Coaching Credentials in the “forms” section.
All umpires are required to be certified. The annual clinic date will be posted on the website. Umpires are paid. Please be respectful of these young lads as they learn this skill. Adults can also ump if they’d like.
Please appreciate the time volunteers spend to support your child’s baseball interest. More volunteers are always welcome and needed. You can also support your child and his/her team by helping rake and line fields, be a team manager or score keep. Being on the executive also allows you to offer ideas and suggestions to shape youth baseball in Salmon Arm.
Please contact the President or talk to your Division Manager to find out how you can lend a hand, or watch the website for Executive meeting dates.
