Interested in playing more baseball:

Provincial ‘A” Baseball

The objective of the Provincial 'A' League is to provide a longer season of baseball for community (House League) level players/teams, allowing them to continue to play through the month of July with a 'A' Provincial Championship at 11U, 13U, 15U and 18U categories.

Teams will compete in a Regional format for two weekends in July; the number and size of the regions will be based on the number of teams that register. If there are too few teams registered to provide a League, the teams that did register will be given the opportunity/choice to compete in the lowest tier of 'AA' for that age category; including the Provincial Championships.

All interested players will attend open camps throughout May and team(s) selection will be made before end of May, under the direction of the Technical Coordinator, Division Director and VP of House League.

Once teams are created, players participate in House League for May/June, with occasional Provincial “A” team practices, exhibition games and possible tournaments outside of House League weeknight games.

Fall Ball

Fall Ball  is played in the month of September, games are typically played on Saturdays, practices are at the discretion of the coaches and typically during week nights. All skill levels are welcome to register. Note that you will register in the level of ball that you will play in the 2020 season. i.e. if you are a second year 9U this season, you will play 11U Fall Ball.
