CBA is heavily invested in player and coach development. We provide our athletes with ongoing opportunities for development such as post-season camps, offseason cage time and preseason team practices. Whether you are a serious athlete or looking for recreational fun, you will provided ongoing growth opportunities.
Our Player Development Director also positions our parent coaches for success with development clinics, instructional materials and opportunities for ongoing education. All coaches are required to be vetted and complete concussion training through Safe Sport. Check out our Coaches Page for a glimpse into our approach.
Sportsmanship and teamwork are fundamental values of our program. We expect our players, coaches and parents to exhibit the highest degree of sportsmanship towards each other, our community and our competitors.
Being part of a team is such a great opportunity for our youth to learn, grow and build long-lasting friendships. Our high school players often tell us how their experience in youth baseball helped shape their success as young men. We are thrilled to be part of this journey with our athletes.
Our community has a long, rich baseball history. Athletic Park, home of the Chaska Cubs, is a community icon. We value this tradition and seek to continue building upon it with our youth program for decades to come.
CBA also has a strong partnership with the Cubs. Whether working concessions at a home game or catching a game with the team, we enjoy this social aspect of our program.
CBA is also enhancing its partnership with the city of Chaska towards a common goal of improving our fields and facilities to set us up for the future! Watch for information about how you can support this initiative soon!
There will be several volunteer opportunities offered throughout the baseball season, which all can be found and must be managed through our online DIBS portal. Below is a list of common volunteer options and how to claim them.
1. Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Team Manager:
There are only 3 adults per team that can have these titles. If you are chosen as one of the 3 adults, you will receive enough credits to cover 1 children worth of volunteer time. Your volunteer check will be shredded for up to 1children.
2. Evaluation/Expo Volunteer:
There will be several volunteer opportunities available in April for our Youth Evaluation and Expo day. Volunteer shifts will continue to be posted and updated as we need assistance. Remember, each child registered needs 3 Volunteer Shifts for the season. To complete your volunteer hours on this day, you would need to volunteer for 3 time slots per child. You can find these available on the "Dibs" Tab at the top of the Chaska Baseball Website.
3. Concession Stand Volunteer:
Concession will likely return in 2022! There will be several volunteer opportunities throughout the baseball season to work at our concession stands. This is not a money maker for our league, however, it is a service we provide to parents and children who may not have enough time to get water, sports drinks, or even dinner before or after the game. You can find these available on the "Dibs" Tab at the top of the Chaska Baseball Website.
Opportunities to volunteer also include helping with travel baseball tryouts, field cleanup day(s), special events, VFW Burger Night, development sessions/camps and Board membership.
We are partnered with the Chaska Cubs, and with our leagues ongoing support of each other, we are committed to have each team within our organization work concessions at one of the home games at Athletic Park. This is a very easy, but regarding and fun experience for team bonding, adult interaction, and the kids to have a blast! (note: this volunteer shift DOES NOT count towards the required 3-shifts. It is incremental).
A HUGE and sincere "thank you" to our volunteers. We simply could not run this program without your support and dedication!
Current day weather cancellations will be posted on the Chaska Baseball Association home page around 4:00 PM (if the city closes the fields). We will send a mass email out to the entire association as well.
After 4:00 PM if the city of Chaska has not closed fields, it is up to the coaches/umpire to determine if the practice/game should be held.
Coaches can use their team page to send an email to their teams if necessary. If no notification is sent out, assume the practice or game is still on.
