Baseball players will get to enjoy the newly remodelled Lions baseball diamond this season. The work has started and excitement is building for the place Nelson Minor Baseball will call home-base. Use of Queen Elizabeth park will also continue. The season is set to open April 16 (pending weather related field conditions) for Little League and Babe Ruth League ages 9 to 15 years. While the Eagles Youth Baseball for ages eight years and under is set to start May 1. Registration is still open for the Eagles group. For all Nelson Baseball information please visit


The Nelson Ultimate Frisbee Association (NUFA) will be shifting from indoor to outdoor very soon. The summer league runs April 26 to September 30 with pickup games every Sunday from 4 to 6 p.m. and every Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Lakeside Park. All levels of players are welcome.

NUFA is also bringing back the much loved and long lost Nelson Ultimate Frisbee Tournament newly renamed the Nelson Disc Break. On July 21 and 22 weekend a small army of volunteers will organize an epic tournament weekend focused on fun, family, and frisbee. Nelson will host 12 teams from BC and Alberta. Please find out how you can contribute to the best Disc Break ever. Contact  or go to  for league and tourney information.


The next pro-d day is coming up on April 20 and coincides with the weekend Rick Hansen tour through town. The Rick Hansen team is inviting all school aged kids to participate in a (no charge) activity day with them at the NDCC. Includes drop in road hockey in the parking lot from 10 to 2 p.m.. Check upcoming schedule for more details.


Last, (and a sure sign that spring is coming) Nelson Minor Hockey is hosting its Annual General Meeting on May 2 at 7 p.m. at the New Grand Hotel.
