Thank-you for your interest!
VCB charges a $75 volunteer opt-out fee unless you sign up to be a coach or assistant coach. If you are volunteering with the VCB Board in a non-coaching role (for example, a Division Coordinator or Sponsorship Coordinator), please contact the registrar before you register and I will give you a discount code which can be used in place of the volunteer opt-out fee.
In House League, our association has a a policy of requiring players to register for their age-specific division (except that players who are turning 19 in the current year have the option of registering in 18U AA as an overage player). In some circumstances, players are permitted to play one division above their age group on travel teams.
BC Minor Baseball rules require that players play in their local association. Please refer to the map below to ensure you live within VCB's catchment prior to registering. If you live outside of the shaded area, you can find your local association on BC Minor Baseball's website. The link is below.
If you live in VCB's catchment but are trying to register a player under the age of 9, you should be registering with a Little League Association. Links for the Vancouver West side Little League websites can be found below.
For those of you who won't be joining us for the 2021 season, we're sad to see you go. You can disconnect your SportsEngine profile membership so you no longer receive mass emails from VCB by following the instructions at https://help.sportsengine.com, then navigate to My Account/Unsubscribe
If you were registered last year and are age-eligible to play again this year but are not planning to do so, we would appreciate if you would let us know by email. I will be contacting families of eligible unregistered players by phone around Feb 15th unless I've been informed that you are not planning to play this year. You can contact the registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Vancouver Community Baseball encourages parents to be involved as a volunteer coach or assistant coach for your son or daughter's team at the 11U, 13U, 15U, and 18U levels. If you are not able to volunteer in a coach or assistant coach capacity, we charge a $75 volunteer opt-out fee, which will be added to your registration total.
If you are volunteering at the organization level approved by the Association President (e.g. Division Coordinator, Sponsorship Coordinator), please let the registrar know prior to registering. You will receive a discount code which will offset the volunteer opt-out fee.
The volunteer opt-out fee does not apply to registrants in the LMBA division.
If you are selected to a travel team, the following additional fees will apply:
|Team||Travel team fee||Total cost (for non-volunteers)|
If you wish to try out for a travel team, please go ahead and register for the division your child will be playing (11U/13U/15U/18U). There is a question on the form asking whether you want to play on a travel team, for the divisions where VCB offers a travel team option.
Tryouts for the travel teams will take place in February with the rosters announced no later than March 10, 2020 (possibly earlier).
Players not selected to a travel team will be drafted onto a house team, unless you indicate an intention to withdraw by notifying the registrar. If you decide to withdraw, please do so before the house team drafts take place as we don't offer refunds after the teams are formed.
Payment may be made by credit card only. If you wish to pay by cheque or cash please contact the Registrar for instructions. All payments are to be made in Canadian dollars.
Payment is due in full at the time of registration.
Financial assistance may be available through various organizations. Please check the funding page for further information.
All players must be registered to attend assessments (where applicable). Your child will not be placed on a team until registration is complete.
A request for a refund will only be considered if it is delivered, in writing, to the league's Registrar. If you do not receive a response to your request to withdraw within 24 hours, re-send the email to the Registrar and copy the Association President and the applicable Division Coordinator. Their contact information can be found on the Contacts page of this website.
There is a $75.00 non-refundable fee for all withdrawals to cover the league's registration and credit card transaction costs.
Requests for refunds prior to the teams being formed (start of the season) must be supported by a valid reason. Requests for refunds will be reviewed on a case by case basis to ensure the validity of the request.
After the teams have been formed, requests for refunds will only be considered for medical reasons, and must be supported by a note from a physician. If accepted, refunds will be pro-rated (less the non-refundable fee) based on when the injury or illness occurred within the season.
All refunds will be provided no later than two (2) weeks after receiving the request for refund.
Q: I've played my baseball at Little Mountain Baseball and all my friends will be playing at VCB so I want to play with VCB too, but I don't live in VCB's catchment. Can I still register with VCB?
A: Generally, no. Little Mountain's eastern boundary does not quite line up with VCB's eastern boundary: if you live South of 41st and East of Main, you are in LMB's catchment but you are also in Vancouver Minor Baseball's catchment, not VCB's. And BC Minor Baseball does not allow the school a child attends to be considered when determining a catchment, whereas Little League does.
You may apply for a release from VMBA, which will allow your child to play with another association for one year only, and you will be required to apply again the following year. The decision to grant or deny a release is made at the sole discretion of the VMBA President. VCB League Officials have no ability to influence the decision.
