Aldergrove Minor Baseball has benefitted from volunteerism for over 40 years.

“It is truly the backbone to every community in its never ending quest to enrich the lives of its peoples,” said Robert Ross. Vice President of Aldergrove Minor Baseball.

A fresh face to the AMBA board brought forth a creative and innovative program this year that illustrates the  importance in giving the gift of time and the satisfaction to self that it can bring.

Shannon Ardell, AMBA volunteer and special events coordinator, recommended that all Bantam (13-15 years) and Midget (15-18 years) aged players facilitate a series of three practice sessions to teams and players from the club’s junior divisions.

With three teams at Bantam and two teams at Midget it provided 15 90-minute clinics to about 125 youths.

Each clinic was separated into five or six stations with two “senior” players instructing.
