Impact of 'Emergency Brake Shutdown'
It’s been a busy news cycle since our registration launch date communication! By now, you will be aware that all of Ontario is going into an 'emergency brake shutdown’ Saturday, April 3 for at least 28 days, during which time activities like our House League are not permitted.
In light of this, we have decided to postpone our April 6 registration. We are hopeful we will be able to resume baseball activities soon after these restrictions end. But for now, it remains unclear what will be allowed and how quickly. We may be able to offer the exact same House League experience, or we may need to modify the format and offering somewhat.
To avoid registering you and then potentially cancelling, crediting, and reregistering you, we will monitor developments throughout April and be back in touch the last week of April with an update.
We thank you for your patience and your interest in Leaside Baseball! We can’t wait to get back on the field and our team is doing everything we can to make that happen.
We’re Being Honest When We Say to Register ASAP
House League registrations fill up quickly every year! Due to field permits 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!
House League Philosophy
The core philosophy of Leaside Baseball House League is to help players learn the game and develop their skills in a safe, positive, inclusive, and fun environment.
The objective is for players to have fun while they build on the basics they learn throughout the season. Children should not be subjected to fierce competition or intense pressure to perform. House Leagues are intended to provide instruction in the fundamentals of baseball and to emphasize sportsmanship, teamwork, and fair play.
Having fun is of the utmost importance. Coaches and parents should provide encouragement, use a supportive teaching approach, and model positive behaviour for all players.
Improvements for the 2021 Season
In partnership with the TDSB, we’re excited to welcome our players and families to a brand new Rolph Road PS east diamond. With grit, determination and deep baseball passion, this field has gone from a sandlot to a true baseball diamond that will allow us to continue our community-based baseball programming for years to come.
Learning Through FUN!
Our house league program is run by the same exceptional staff of coaches and counsellors that work at our Summer Camp and Development Clinics. Players get the benefit of fun, engaging, and really cool baseball skill development during the gameplay. At the best moment, they’ll be taught how to throw and catch, bat, and where to position in the field. Coaching and playing at the same time, best opportunity to develop and grow their love for the sport.
