Baseball Manitoba believes in being proactive in ensuring baseball is safe and enjoyable so that all our participants are able to "Create a Memorable Baseball Experience". As such, many of our Policies are there to protect our young athletes. Coach Education, through NCCP Programs and Respect in Sport are great ways to educate our members. We have also developed and advertised a Concussion Awareness plan.

In Manitoba, it is everyone’s legal obligation to report suspected child abuse. If, in your honest judgment, you believe that a child may not be safe, you are legally required to report it. The experts at the Safe Sport Line can help you make that report.
In your phone’s contacts, add the Safe Sport Line as a contact with this phone number: 1-833-656-SAFE (7233), and email address email@example.com, so you can have it at the ready if you’re ever in a situation you don’t know how to handle.
