For current teams and coaching staff go to the Select Teams' page; if your team isn't posted please contact Mike Fleming
Volunteers are needed for the 2013 Select Division, please contact Gail if you would like to help.
No cuts will be made until the teams have been assigned practise and tryout time outdoors. No commitment is required until you have been chosen for a team. For info please email or come out to the indoor sessions and find out what Select is all about!
Who Can Tryout?
All House League players in the Eastern Baseball Association are welcome to tryout for their respective Select team i.e., if you play Rookie in House League you can try out for the Rookie Select team. As long as a player plays on a House League team he/she is welcome to try; players without a select team playing out of their locatl baseball association should contact their Select or House League Director for more information; we hope this policy will help some smaller centres expose their players to another level of play, and stimulate House League participation.
Players who play Select must attend at least 75 percent of the House League games or they will not be allowed to play with the Select team. Select was established to enhance House League and encourage its growth, this is grassroots baseball! So through the week players will play House League on their assigned night and on the weekend (Sunday late afternoon) they will play with their Select team.
Teams may sign up for tournaments, and/or attend the provincials at the end of the season, tournaments generally run from Fri to Sun about noon. Once teams are assigned parents and coaches will decide how many (if any) tournaments they plan to attend.
Indoor tryouts during the winter, however, no cuts will be made until the players have been outdoors, the gym sessions are a good way to see what select is all about, ask questions, get some practice in.
The season begins the first of June, however, there are exhibition games scheduled throughout May, it will be up to your coach how involved you will be in May, since during May tryouts are ongoing. There is an additional charge for players on a select team, $230.00 this includes the cost of the select uniform.
When, Where & with Whom?
Games will be played on Sunday late afternoon, we will play in the EOBA Associations Select Loop with approx, 7 home games and 7 away games; there will be championship games the end of August, you will play Bowmanville, Peterborough, Ajax, Oshawa, hopefully a few more this year! The loop does not play long weekends. Regular season stops the first of August. More info www.soba.ca. For 2013 some change to the Loop some of the teams will play in may change... please watch here for details; these changes should not affect travel time.
