We are ecstatic to inform you that we are ready to start baseball again!!! With Phase 3 finally happening, we can offer clinics in larger groups while still adhering to the social distancing protocols.
The clinics will run on Diamonds 2 and 3 at Mohawk Sports park (the diamonds with the canteen).
Rookie and Mosquito will run Monday and Wednesday nights,
Peewee, Bantam and Midget will run Tuesday and Thursday nights.
The cost of participation is $5 per clinic or $30 for the whole season (Aug 4-Sept 11)

As a parent or guardian, you will also need to practice social distancing while at the diamonds in order for EMBA to ensure a safe experience for all.
As of now, we have 6-8 coaches who have volunteered to run the clinics but we will most likely need more help. If you were a coach last year or a parent helper and you are willing to help out, please reach out to Ryan Maggio at email@example.com
We can’t wait to get out there, see everyone and start having fun!!!
Stay safe and stay healthy and we’ll see you all soon.
The executive and their families have put together a fun video for today as today would have been our opening day for the 2020 season. We hope you enjoy the video until we can come together at the diamonds again.
Stay safe, stay strong! EMBA Executive
