House League registrations fill up quickly every year! Due to field permit and resource limitations, we will not be able to accommodate all interested families. As such, we recommend registering quickly after the registration window opens to ensure your child's spot.
Important note regarding Mosquito age groups (i.e. 2008 and 2009 birth years). The Leaside Baseball Association does not offer a House League for the Mosquito age groups (i.e. 2008 and 2009 birth years). For those ages, players graduate to the Leaside Atom Baseball program hosted at Trace Manes Park.
Leaside Atom Baseball is a fully independent program from the Leaside Baseball Association and does not typically use online registration. Check their website for information on registration (expected to begin in mid-January 2019): www.leasideatombaseball.com
IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT SPRING HOUSE LEAGUES
This season we will only be accepting credit card payments.
UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT
The LBA shall provide hats, jerseys and pants and hats for all players. The LBA also provides all required baseball equipment including balls, bases, bats, helmets and catcher's gear. Players are to bring appropriate running shoes (for turf or diamond) or baseball cleats (diamond only) and their baseball glove. An athletic cup is required for age 8 and older.
Players may bring their own baseball bat but must share it with their teammates. Players may bring their own batting helmet and do not need to share it.
REP AND SELECT PLAYERS
Due to limited space in our program, and to try to assure fairness, we do not accept players that are currently on Rep or Select teams in Leaside or elsewhere in Toronto. Players that have previously played Rep or Select baseball are accepted.
If your child would like to play with a friend, please indicate their name in the Friend Request box during registration. Each friend request must be mutual (i.e. the friend must also request your child). We will only guarantee to honour one mutual friend request. This is to allow us the best opportunity to balance teams fairly.
COACHES AND VOLUNTEERS
We are always looking for enthusiastic and engaged parents and older siblings to serve as coaches and/or volunteers. If you are interested please indicate so on your registration form. Team coaches shall receive discounted registration in the Leaside Baseball development programin the 2019 season. Coaches will be on the same team as their child.
Coaches are principally responsible for managing the team equipment bag, coordinating lineups, player positions and snack schedules. Coaches will be provided access to TeamSnap to communicate with families.
USE OF FEES
The registration fee covers uniforms, team and game equipment, umpire and facilitator costs, insurance, permit and administrative expenses as well as contributes to the Leaside Baseball financial assistance and capital improvement programs.
The teams and schedules are released 2 to 4 weeks prior to the start of the season. The season starts in the first week of May until the last week of June.
