BCBUA - COVID-19 Update
Posted Mar 14, 2020

Effective immediately, in compliance with Baseball Canada suspension of all IN PERSON baseball operations until March 31, the BCBUA will be ceasing all instructional clinics and officiating in the province of BC until that date. A reevaluation of the impact of COVID-19 at the end of March, and its impact on British Columbia, will be our indicator of when we can resume regular operations.

Baseball BC has served notice that they will be shutting down IN PERSON operations for 7 days, but will be upgrading their timelines to match that of Baseball Canada shortly.

We realize this is short notice, and will cause people significant inconvenience, but the safety of our members and compliance with health authority recommendations is our driving motivation for this action.

The BCBUA Board of Directors fully supports this recommendation and believes it to be in the best interest of its members.

We will keep all new information posted on our website at www.bcbua.ca going forward.

We thank you for your understanding and compliance with these health and safety recommendations.

Please see links below for the Baseball BC and Baseball Canada advisory bulletins.

2020 Umpire Development

Attention all current and future RMMBA Umpires,

The Ridge Meadows Minor Baseball Executive is pleased to welcome you back to the 2020 baseball season.

Back in the 2017 season we made some changes at the UIC level. 2018 was a leap forward in developing our umpires, young and old, to be the best umpires they can be. We are confident that 2020 will be a great season for all involved.

Please make note of the information below; it follows the same pattern as 2019. Whether you are a new ump this year or a retunring ump read through it, for the first time or as a refresher.

Payment

This year we will contine using Direct Deposit for our payment method, as we did in 2019. One of the previous concerns with Direct Deposit was that umpires were unaware of what games they were actually being paid. Assignr is the single source for game schedules and details so that umpires are able to double check and bring to our attention any discrepancies.

1. Payments are now scheduled. Payments are now bi-weekly with cut off on Wednesday with payment expected to be deposited the following Monday.

2. You will receive notification when the deposit occurs via your email on the Direct Deposit form.

3. Assignr is considered to be the true record of the games attended with all the details.

You must register online at www.bcbua.ca under clinic information. The cost of the clinic will be reimbursed by RMMBA after the completion. If you are unable to attend our clinic on these dates, you are able to attend a clinic at another association as long as room permits. All other clinics are on the BCBUA clinic page.

Looking forward to a great 2020 baseball season.
