Name Position Contact
Adam Tupper Tadpole Commissioner tadpole@rmmba.ca


Tadpole is a developmental program that emphasizes having fun while learning the basic skills of baseball - batting, throwing, fielding and base running. This season we have gone back to first and second years playing together.  So both age groups will have the opportunity to pitch and hit off the pitching machine.  This is a 2012/2013 born age division.

Tadpole games will likely run on Tuesdays, or Thursdays and Sundays. Weekend games are typically at one of three times: 10 am, 1pm or 4 pm.

Barns 2021

Tadpole barns will start in January and go to the end of February depending on interest.

A Sign up Genius link will be sent out in  late December/early January to the email linked to your players account. All sign up instructions will come with the link

Dates and times TBD

Spring Season

Games will begin the first week of April and run until mid June.  Each team will play 12-14 regular season games and will participate in two tournaments (dependant on Covid situation). Teams should expect to hold at least one practice per week, coaches may add additional practices at their discretion. Tadpole Division’s primary fields are

PMAP #2, Upper Albion Park, and Merkley Park. All players will get plenty of opportunities to bat, and are encouraged to learn all fielding positions.

Summer Ball

The Mini Mosquito Program - Mini Mosquito is a competitive program that runs from mid-June to late July. All players that played in the Tadpole Spring Season are eligible, and will attend an evaluation session for team selection. Mini Mosquito plays by Mosquito rules - players pitch the whole game and base stealing is allowed.

The U8 Program - This is strictly a pitching machine based program that allowed the kids to continue their baseball season into the summer. 

Summer Ball teams represent Ridge Meadows and play against other local teams such as Coquitlam, Abbotsford, and Cloverdale etc. Some regional travel is required. There is no set season for the Summer Ball program, there is generally an interlock schedule set up for games and then tournament play-generally games are finished by the end of July
