Baseball Ontario Program Overview

Updated Wednesday December 12, 2018 by Kanata Baseball Association.

Rep and Select teams will have the following overall program outline:

  • Tryouts in January/February
  • Teams formed early February
  • Spring Team Training in February-April
  • Playing season May-August
  • Playoffs & Provincial Playdowns Mid August
  • Provincials weekend (For qualifying teams) September Labour Day Weekend

 

Teams will use the birth year to determine age divisions.  The following Rep teams are being made available in our program:

  • 2001 – 18U Major Midget Rep - Head Coach: Jose Hernandez
  • 2003 - 16U Minor Midget Rep - Head Coach: Greg MacDonald
  • 2004 - 15U Bantam Rep - Head Coach: Al Brule
  • 2005 - 14U Minor Bantam Rep - Head Coach: To Be Named
  • 2006 - 13U Peewee Rep - Head Coach: Dan Goldie
  • 2007 - 12U Minor Peewee Rep - Head Coach: Troy Forgie
  • 2008 - 11U Mosquito Rep - Head Coach: TJ Carlson
  • 2009 - 10U Minor Mosquito Rep Head Coach: Mark Kapfer

 

Players not chosen to a Rep team may be chosen for a Select team.  These teams are part of our competitive program and are operated as mixed age groups.  Select teams have their own provincials and may play in either Rep or Select tournaments. Select offers players a similar experience to the Rep program with similar expectations from coaches.

  • 2004/2005 – Bantam Select - Head Coach: To Be Determined
  • 2006/2007 - Peewee Select - Head Coach: Russ Mullins
  • 2008/2009 - Mosquito Select - Head Coach: Rob Mercer

While Rep and Select teams are part of our Competitive program, these teams will focus on Player Development.  This requires substantial commitment to practice time in order to learn the skills of the game at a high level.  Games may be scheduled during the week or on the weekends.  Typical weeks during the playing season would be 2 games and 2-3 practices.

These teams will also participate in a number of tournaments throughout the season. All teams can expect to host their own OBA sanctioned tournament in Kanata with proceeds going to the team.  Seaway Surge, Kingston Thunder and Montreal Rockies are also hosting tournaments that we should attend as local area tournaments.  Southern Ontario and particularly Toronto offers a variety of tournaments at all levels (Select, A, AA, AAA) that teams should look to attend to determine their classification.

All teams will have an opportunity to compete for the OBA Provincials.  Where multiple teams are vying for the same Provincials spot, there will be a NCOBA playoff in August to determine the affiliate champion.
