The GBVA U18-AAA Team has been selected for the 2020 season.
Just as each of our parks is getting ready for the spring season the HarbourCats are getting ready for theirs. The first step other than signing players is finding host families for their players. It might feel too early for this but it is not.
Have a look at https://harbourcats.com/billet-families/ for some general information.
If you or anyone from your park has any questions please email email@example.com.

Greater Victoria Baseball Association (GVBA) will be running multiple winter clinics starting December 12, 2019 through to February 28, 2020 for players who will be in 9U-15U in 2020 (birth years 2005-2012). We have kept the cost very low this off season to $5 a session. Since we are a large organization with so many keen players we have to limit participation to 20 sessions with a 40 player cap per session.
Organization and practice plans will be prepared by Jason Leslie, Technical Director in charge of Player and Coach Development for the GVBA and instruction will be led by Jason as well as multiple coaches from across our organization. This is a great opportunity for players in our 9U-15U division (based on Spring 2020 age) to shake off the fall and winter rust to prepare for a baseball season in a fun and developmental environment. Any community coaches who are interested in helping please feel free to contact Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Register for these clinics at https://registration.victoriabaseball.com/winter-clinics-2019-2020/.
The Greater Victoria Baseball Association (GVBA) will be having tryouts for the 2020 18U AAA team and all players from ages 15 to 18 (birth years 2002, 2003 and 2004) are encouraged to attend. It is important that players in Victoria wishing to play 18U AAA baseball in 2020 register prior to attending.
Tryouts this year will begin on January 11, 2020 and run for 10 Saturdays until March 14th. They will be held at the Oak Bay Rec Center indoor turf facility form 6:00-8:00pm. We will be focusing on helping players improve with quality instruction while we assess and make the difficult decision of selecting this team.
Regardless of you or your player making this team they will receive quality instruction to help them prepare for the season ahead. We are bound by BC Minor Baseball rules to limit our roster size to 18 players maximum. The cost of tryouts is $250 per player. This helps with insurance coverage, facility fees and coaching fees. Payment instructions will be sent to all registered players.
Register for these tryouts at https://registration.victoriabaseball.com/18u-aaa-tryouts/.
