Female High Performance


Attention Elite Athlete,

Thanks for participating in Baseball BC’s High Performance Program. There were over 60 athletes identified across the province, from which many received an invitation to the Provincial Camp.  50 of BC’s best female athletes attended Camp in hopes of bearing the Team BC flag at a championship this August.

According to coaches & evaluators, this year was extremely difficult to make selections due to the unlimited talent present & skills that were displayed.  The fine play that followed at the tournament didn’t make matters for coaches any easier.  This is great for the overall program as the future is bright.  The young female talent we are seeing truly is exciting.  If not selected this year, maybe next season is your time to shine.  Keep working hard and you’re bound for good things. 

For those who were selected & invited to Team BC, 14U or 16U, Congratulations to you & your family.  Your efforts have paid off & we are proud for you to represent our province at this year’s championship.  Alternates will train & practice with the team but are not to register until officially invited by the head coach.  The Championship registration link will be emailed direct to team selections &/or alternates, if needed.  Again, congratulations and we expect & know you will represent BC as you would yourself.

1st Ever - Girl's Residential Baseball Camp - CANCELLED

IT’S OFFICIAL - The Big League Experience will be running an all inclusive Girls camp in the Beautiful sunny Okanagan from July 28 – August 2. Since 1960 the boys have had the opportunity to take part in what many considered one of the best developmental Baseball Camps in North America. A residential baseball camp in the Beautiful Sunny South Okanagan (Oliver, B.C.), and the opportunity to work with some of the best coaches the game has to offer.  It’s now time the girls take over the fields for a week and become part of the BLE tradition.

The BLE has a great reputation with baseball opportunities and development and is excited to announce its inaugural event for the girls. With the support of Baseball BC, we have teamed up with Baseball BC's 14U Provincial Team coach, Stacy Fournier, who will Head up the Elite Instructional team that will include National team Players/Coaches. Along with Stacy’s staff will be former Big Leaguer & World Series Champion Albie Lopez, Provincial Manager of Female Baseball & recent Team Canada coach Scott Mackenzie and MLB Scout & former Canadian Olympic team coach Marty Lehn. All players that participate in Baseball BC's Provincial Selects tryout July 9-11 will be offered a discount to BLE's Residential Camp.  We are excited about playing a role in the development of the girls game and look forward to an experience that will truly be “Big League”.

Baseball B.C.’s Female Selects Program Vision, Mission and Values

Vision - We will achieve our highest potential in competition & life by creating an inspiring culture through mentorship, development, excellence, & fun.

Mission - Grow the game of baseball and encourage Long Term Athlete Development by providing female athletes a positive environment and a healthy state of mind.

Values - Passion, Respect, Motivation, Commitment, Honesty and openness, Fitness and health, Communication, Guidance, Relationships, Accountability, Character building, and Continuous improvement

 

Program Structure

This program is designed to attract all females 8 years & older.  Although based in the Lower Mainland, we offer & facilitate regional development sessions, such as grassroots festivals, clinics, ID camps & more throughout the province every year.  We strive to provide female athletes with a combination of competition and development in a fun all-female environment. Currently, in addition to Grassroots Girl's Baseball, there are four competitive divisions or age groups in the BC Provincial Female Baseball Program that can accommodate out-of-towners, 14U, 16U, 21U and Women’s Open.  Each year, these divisions represent BC in National or Western Canadian Championships; with rosters full of dreams of wearing the Maple Leaf as members of Team Canada at events like the World Cup, Pan Am Games or maybe even the Olympics one day.  The program is driven by a five person committee and led by Chair Val Greenwood, Director of Player Development Al Forman and Liaison to Player Wellness and Rules Rhonda Pauls.  Each team has NCCP qualified coaches that have been chosen by the program committee through an application process. Also, the BC Girls Baseball consults with their respected Advisory Council populated by Becky Hartley, Amanda Asay, Niki Boyd, Jennifer Gilroy & Claire Eccles.

Season Structure

The spring season typically consists of some regional identification sessions around the province, weekly open development sessions, division practices, tournaments, etc. as listed above & in the schedule… Many athletes are playing with club teams in the spring, and although their priority should be to their club teams, value still resides in attending the skill development or Regional identification sessions when possible.  Primarily, the spring is to identify & develop female baseball players.

The summer season traditionally sees BC Select Female teams play in youth league play.  Typically, divisional teams begin practicing on their own at this point, and game schedules are usually set up on weekends to accommodate out of town players.  If teams qualify through league play, they have played in their youth league provincial tournaments and/or participated as tournament hosts… 

Provincial teams will then play in National or Western Canadian Championships; for this year's locations, under High Performance tab, see Female Selects Team BC's...

Each provincial team and its final rosters will be named after an identification session & provincial selection camp. All athletes must attend a ID & the Select Camp if they are interested in being chosen for Team BC.
