Girls "Come Try Baseball" Development Series

Due to the success of the BC Girl's Instructional Baseball League below, we are unsure of the availability of this development series.  If there is a strong demand from girls, through registration below, we will look at offering these Monday evenings again. More info is below in hopes girl's will register for sessions beginning sometime in May through to August...

Whether you play baseball or just want to try for the first time, come out Monday evenings with other like minded girls to have fun & sharpen your skills.  Practices are lead by Director of Player Development & former elementary school teacher Al Forman, and often provincial & national players are there mentoring the girls as well.  So, if you like FUN & want to give it a try or challenge your skills, development sessions are to be confirmed at a later date but traditionally have been Monday's 6pm in Burnaby at Kensington Park (No sessions on holiday's - Victoria Day May 21, BC Day August 6).  Hope to see your registration & stay tuned.  We will confirm dates in May or fully refund registrants the $20 Development Cost if there's no demand.

BC Girls Baseball 2019 Instructional League

After a successful inaugural season in 2018, Baseball BC is thrilled to announce the BC Girls Instructional League will be expanding & back for its sophomore season in 2019!  The participants can again look forward to working with the finest female mentors and coaches as they develop baseball skills with other like-minded girls.  Throughout 9 sessions over 10 weeks this Spring and Summer, our trained coaches will build confidence, promote inclusivity, and provide a fun environment for new and experienced players alike.

This year, there will be two divisions split into ages 7-9 and 10-12.  Both groups will play on Saturday's for 1.5-2hrs each, with a similar format making Year One so successful.  With a focus on skill development and learning, the players will be work in small groups with trained coaches on a variety of baseball skills for the first half of the session.  The second half will always include a simulated game, catered to fit the needs of all players.

Girl’s Day Festivals

Baseball BC is excited to partner with local baseball association to bring you Fun Girl's Day Festivals.  Girls of all ages will have the chance to work with female mentors and coaches as they develop baseball skills and play with and against other like-minded girls. The girl's will enjoy the time learning the game of baseball and developing skills.  This will be a unique experience for any young player to participate in whether or not they are playing in a league already.  Our trained mentors and coaches (many with Women’s Team Canada experience) will build confidence, promote inclusivity, and provide a fun environment for new and experienced players alike.  Whether your daughter has played since t-ball, or she just wants to try out a new sport, get her out to this event!  Sport is so important to girls' healthy development, and we recognize the importance of giving these young players a safe place to further develop their physical literacy and stay active.  
It's also time to recognize that not every young female ball-player wants to be pushed into softball.  Although a great game, it is just different.  Baseball is as different from softball as hockey is from ringette.  With more opportunities presenting themselves for the female baseball player, we encourage you to register and witness the movement for yourself.  We welcome all skill levels, and require no previous sport experience.  All we ask you bring is a ball glove, a smile, and a willingness to have FUN. 

 

So, come out and try baseball!  We are excited to host these festivals throughout BC.  No cost to attend, registration is required.  Registration now by clicking on a date & location best for you.
