The Leaside Leafs invite players born in 2006 who are interested in competitive baseball to try out for the 2018 Leaside Leafs Peewee Select Team. Tryouts will take place mid-September (as indicated below) and selection shall be at the discretion of the coaching team.
The 2018 Leaside Select Peewee team will place emphasis on creating a fun and positive experience, developing young competitive baseball players, and instilling a love of baseball with a heavy emphasis on teamwork.
Practices: The team will commence practices in the fall (frequency TBD), indoors during the winter months, moving to outdoor practices (weekly) in late April or early May (weather dependent). Exact day of the week for practices will be established once facilities have been identified.
Games: The team will participate in the Toronto Baseball Association. Games will take place on Sunday evenings starting in late May and running into August. There will be 10 regular season games. The Head Coach may also schedule exhibition games or make-up games for rain-outs. There are typically no games scheduled on the Canada Day or Civic long weekends.
Tournaments: We plan to play in 3-4 tournaments over the season, with the TBA season end tournament being typically the weekend following the August long weekend. Tournament locations will be determined March-April 2018.
An important aspect of the Select program is commitment to the team, and respecting the opportunity to play for a competitive team. Players are expected to attend a significant portion of Select practices, games and tournaments as scheduled. The aim is to build a team that practices and plays together consistently with cohesiveness.
All players should be available to attend the Toronto Baseball Association (TBA) city playoffs in that take place August 10-12th 2018, and, if the team qualifies, the Ontario Baseball Association (OBA) provincial championships August 31- September 3 2018.
Please note that there is a financial commitment to participate in the Select program that could range in the $800-$1000 level to cover league fees, practice fields, training, uniforms, equipment and tournaments.
Thank you very much.
