Mission (Port Dover Minor Baseball)



Port Dover Minor Baseball is an independent, non-profit organisation, committed to servicing youth in the community of Port Dover and surrounding area. We are dedicated to providing players with an enjoyable sporting experience, which includes learning the basic skills of Baseball, instilling the values of sportsmanship and competition, and aiding youth in the development of lifelong habits such as diet, exercise and focus on health. The goal of our programs is to promote positive self esteem, team spirit and assist youth in individual growth and supporting youth at all skill levels. We strive to create and maintain environments of teamwork, honesty and fair play.

Port Dover Minor ball is governed by an Executive Board, comprised of community volunteers and advocates of sports and physical health. It is the responsibility of this board to attract and develop the best coaches, umpires and other adult leaders to ensure that our children have the most enjoyable learning and playing experience. The development of sportsmanship, teamwork, honesty, courage, respect and physical fitness are the organisations utmost priorities. 

In order to achieve the above, we seek to attain the following:

To govern our teams in a manner that puts the development of our players, as both athletes and persons, above other considerations.

To provide our players with volunteer coaches, who work well with players of all ability levels and who remember that the development of exceptional athletic skills and winning games is secondary to the development of players.

To provide our players with volunteer coaches who seek to teach those players the rules of the game along with proper baseball fundamentals.

To provide our players with volunteer coaches who provide positive examples and a positive baseball experience.

To provide high-quality facilities and equipment for the use of our player.

To ensure our players, coaches and all volunteers within our organisation abide by our code of conduct and that of the Ontario Baseball Association (OBA), ensuring that all individuals are treated with respect and that all members conduct themselves at all times with the values of Port Dover Minor Baseball which include fairness, honesty and mutual respect.

To provide a zero-tolerance policy on bullying and ensure children of all gender, sex, ability, religion, and race are included in our programming.
