Volunteer Background Checks

Baseball PEI / Baseball Canada has mandated that all volunteers associated with kids sports need to have criminal background checks completed. These checks can be used for multiple sports you may be involved with. (Hockey, Soccer, etc)

You can still go to the RCMP to have these done for free but they can take a while to get back. Baseball PEI has partnered with Sterling Backcheck to make this easy for everyone. https://pages.sterlingbackcheck.ca/landing-pages/b/baseballpei/ The Cost is $25.00.

This must be completed by all Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Managers. ‚Äč

The deadline is July 30.

please email the completed background check to cardiganbaseball@gmail.com

Recent Cardigan and Area Minor Ball Association News

Baseball PEI would like to thank all players, coaches, parents and minor baseball associations for a successful 2020 summer season, despite all of the changes and challenges posed by Covid-19!

With the season starting three-five weeks later than usual, the first baseball games took place on 26 June 2020. While there were several changes due to Covid-19 and restrictions and guidelines set forth by the CPHO of Prince Edward Island, each age category played a complete season and completed Provincial Championships. While Provincial Championships were in a different format than usual – most divisions had best-of-three quarterfinals and/or semifinals, with a one-game Final – Prince Edward Island was the only province in Canada that was able to complete Provincial Championships in baseball in 2020.

As well, five minor baseball associations across PEI saw growth in numbers of registered players, and starting on 26 September, seven minor baseball associations across PEI will be participating in Baseball PEI’s new Fall Baseball Pilot program for four-five weeks (with 27 teams taking part in four age categories). Despite challenging circumstances surrounding this season due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Baseball PEI has had a successful season, and that is down to the great work done by its membership!
