Greater Victoria Baseball Association (GVBA) is running a fall program for 18U AAA, to build on the success on our 2019 season and make things better for the upcoming 2020 baseball season. This program is open for players with the birth years 2002, 2003 and 2004.
The fall program will include on field practices, batting cage sessions, plus some weekend games on the island and in addition we have a team booked into a tournament Sep 27 to Sep 29 in Richmond.

In addition these practice and game sessions are an opportunity for coaches to see players in action leading up to our team selection for the 2020 season.
Practices will be Monday and Wednesday (September 9 to end of October) at Layritz starting at 5pm.
