REMINDER! Annual Volunteer Requirements

By Jeremy Laughlin 06/01/2022, 9:00am CDT

At the beginning of the season, each of you signed a volunteer policy requiring 2 shifts per player. These shifts are required to avoid CBA cashing your volunteer deposit at the end of the season. We are now mid-way through the season. Don’t get caught out! There are two ways to sign up to volunteer:
 

  1. DIBS- There are SEVERAL open concessions shifts at Community and Pioneer fields. If we can’t get more shifts filled, concessions cannot stay open. We will also be posting shifts for the Youth year-end tournaments soon.
  2. SignUp Genius- Use link to register for Concessions at select Chaska Cubs games. This is a fun shift, and there are still SEVERAL available. These will count towards your annual requirement but make a note you are with CBA in the registration.

2022 Season is (finally) Here!

By Jeremy Laughlin 05/02/2022, 4:00pm CDT

Welcome to the 2022 baseball season! Youth and Community League programs start this week, and our travel players already started games and practices. The majority of “in-season” communication will come from your head coach, and he/she will be able to field most of your questions. If you have a unique situation or coaching concern, feel free to reach out to one of our Baseball Directors.

Part of what makes baseball great is the comradery and friendships formed across players and families. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram to share pictures and key achievements (example tournament results), so that our baseball community can celebrate with you!
