Summer Rookie InterlockUpdated Friday January 18, 2019 by Kanata Baseball Association.
In the Summer Rookie Interlock Program, KBA enters recreational teams into an interlock league within our Little League District. Teams are formed from interested players who participated in the Spring Rookie House Program, with the number and types of teams determined by registration numbers and available coaches.
This program follows Little League age rules and is restricted to players born between Sept 1, 2010 and August 31, 2012 (specifically, the child will be 7 or 8 years old on August 31, 2019).
Players looking for a recreational summer program, with lower commitment and limited weekday travel are encouraged to register for the Summer Rookie House Program.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact James Moser.
|Eligible Players||Born between Sept 1, 2010 and August 31, 2012|
|Registration Status||Opening early-June|
|Season||Summer (July - August)|
What to Expect
Registration will open in early-June. During the registration process, KBA will be actively recruiting coaches and negotiating entry into the interlock league; the number and types of teams which KBA will field is determined during that month.
Players will be placed on balanced teams in either the Nationals (B) or Canadians (A) division of the interlock team based on evaluation scores and coach feedback from the Spring Rookie House Program. Players which we are not able to accommodate will be given the option to transfer to the Summer Rookie House Program. All parents will be notified of status before the end of June.
The season begins July 2 with interlock games typically scheduled in that first week. Teams play 12 regular season coach-pitch games against opponents from Little League Districts 2 and 6, including teams from Central Ottawa, Nepean, Orleans, and Carleton Place. Games start at 6:00 pm and are generally held Monday to Thursday nights. The schedule is defined and managed by a district representative.
Teams generally practice once per week held on Saturday or Sunday, at the coach's discretion.
League playdowns (playoffs) are held in late August.
Teams are strongly encouraged to participate in the Scott Tokessy Tournament held on the first weekend in August (Civic Holiday Weekend).
