It’s just about that time of year again as in-person registration for Oceanside Minor Baseball will be available February 28 and March 1 at Save-On-Foods in Parksville.

If you can’t wait for the end of February, you can register online and receive an early bird discount.

Just go to www.oceansidebaseball.ca and click on the “register” button.

For the in-person registration, you can drop by between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on both days, Saturday (Feb. 28) and Sunday (March 1) to register for the upcoming season.

A reminder that, if your child is new to minor baseball, please bring their birth certificate along to the registration.

• Also at the AGM meeting, Barb Nicoll was presented with the Coach of the Year award.

Umpire awards were handed out to Leo Ariyama, Spencer Hancock and Brandon Nicoll.
