What to Expect
Registration is currently open. This is an incredibly popular program with space limited by field availability. In 2018, we reached our registration limit in just 16 days.
The program convener will contact parents in late-April with team lists, coaches, and a full season schedule.
The season begins in May after the city has released baseball fields, which can be as early as May 1. Teams will meet once per week, on Saturdays (sessions between 10:00am and 1:00pm) at a baseball diamond within the Kanata urban boundary.
The Spring Initiation Program is a development program, not a "fun league". Our focus is to build skills necessary to be successful in future baseball programs. Each session will be 50% practice and 50% structured gameplay with emphasis on individual athletic and skill development. Game rules are modified to maximize player development through faster gameplay and increased repetition in accordance to guidelines published by Baseball Canada. To improve player engagement and increase active participation in the game, teams are keptvery small (6 to 8 players).
