FALL TRYOUTS (Stratford Minor Baseball Association)


Tryouts for the 2021 season will begin this fall.

Click here for the full calendar of tryouts for all teams.

Covid protocols like distancing and sanitizing will be enforced by all SMBA Coaches during tryouts. Players and parents are asked to please adhere closely to Coaches instructions on these rules.


There are a few extra steps we need to take this year to comply with OBA and Ontario protocols. Please follow these instructions closely and understand that parents/players must adhere to each step:


BEFORE STEPPING ON THE FIELD here is what needs to be completed by each parent/player who will be attending:

-          Register player(s) for tryouts through Goalline

o   Register here: https://stratfordminorbaseball.goalline.ca/register.php?reg_form_id=36997.

o   IF YOU ARE A RETURNING PLAYER AND YOU REGISTERED THROUGH GOALLINE BEFORE – you will have to get your access code from Goalline. Click “What’s my Access Code?” and follow the prompts. It will email you your access code (to the email you used to register last year).

o   Players will not be covered for insurance if they do not register through Goalline and therefore cannot practice.

o   There is no fee for fall tryouts.

-          Every person attending the diamond on the day of tryouts MUST sign in through OnDeck (for contact tracing)

o   You must register for OnDeck first, and then for every tryout you must sign in everyone who is attending. It is encouraged to do this before arriving at the ballpark. There is an app but you can do it without the app.

o   Open this link on a phone or computer to register for OnDeck: https://ondeck.baseballontario.com/memberships/51/register

o   After you have registered, click here on a phone or computer to sign everyone in: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=RrxMSgYUUU6qCGA7LgsgAu6wBp9BQ0VOmVhcOQ0_QsNURVFRS085OERFNjVXM0VUT0xPQlNJNjVMTi4u

Here are a few things to keep in mind before tryouts begin:

-          Social distancing rules apply to everyone attending tryouts – coaches, parents, players and family members/friends. Please bring chairs to sit on to maintain 6 feet distancing.

-          Please limit the number of family/friends that attend tryouts.

-          Dugouts will not be used by any parent, coach or player. If you would like a seat for your child to sit on please send them with one.

-          Players are encouraged to bring their own equipment if possible (bats, gloves, helmets, etc.). If equipment is to be shared, proper sanitizing is required.

-          Masks are not required on the field, but must be worn if 6 feet distancing cannot be maintained.
-           Also, washrooms will not be available at the diamonds.
