(If you stayed registered with us through 2020, you received a "survey" via email requesting direction from you regarding how you'd like us to proceed with your payment: (i) have it applied to our spring 2022 season (ii) and or have it considered for possible use towards a "mini" fall ball program in 2021 should one be offered (note: it wasn't) or, (iii) have the amount refunded. This applies to ALL those already processed to play with us in 2021.)
Welcome to our new Stanley Park website! This website gives us the ability to communicate better with everyone in the organization and all our ball teams and participants. We hope you'll be as excited as we are over this undertaking and use it to keep informed about your team and in contact with your team-mates. There's a mobile app as well! Your contributions - photos, articles, news, etc. are all welcome and solicited. Work with your team's representatives: coaches & web-admin volunteers to keep in touch and record some history.
Since the mid-70s, there has been T-Ball in Stanley Park (except during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 and, unfortunately, 2021). Since taking over the responsibility for running it, it's been one of The Optimist Club of Stanley Park's major programs --- and still is! Our Ball Program has branched out to our current offering which includes Blastball, two levels of T-Ball and two levels of 3-Pitch. Each league is based on age with an overlapping year at the upper & lower ends of the age bracket to accommodate players of different skill levels, interest, maturity, etc. All play is co-ed at the recreational level. Information on each league is available on this website. There are also numerous articles and tips for players, parents, coaches and officials. Please browse the site and then, hopefully you're interested in joining us, you can register online! We plan to open registration for our 2022 season for play under safety restrictions when we get permits validated for us to use the diamonds and when conditions are safe to do so. As of January 10, 2022, the requirements for play in spring 2022 have not been determined and will probably change (hopefully for the better!) as the pandemic is still very much in circulation. Our goal is to open registration as soon as we have assurance that we'll be authorized to have permits to play. Hopefully, better late than never --- and no additional restrictions!

In 2019, we had 45 teams involving over 520 players, 130 to 170 coaches (& assistants), numerous additional volunteers and 37 umpires & scorekeepers to keep things organized. We hope you'll want to be involved. The Covid-19 Pandemic forced us to cancel our 2020 and 2021 seasons but we plan to be back in 2022-- we're ready when it's safe to get the equipment out for you to play! Anticipate each team to be required to have two adults dedicated as "Compliance Officers" heading up a committee of volunteers.
