The GVBA Eagles High Performance 2013/14 Bantam AAA program consists of two teams for players born in 1999 or 2000. The top 28 Bantam players will be selected and divided into Tier I and Tier II teams. Gautam Srivastava will manage the Tier I team. The Tier II Manager has not been finalized. Presently, both these teams compete in the same league operated by BC Minor Baseball. For your reference last years 2013 schedule and results can be found at http://www.bcminorbaseball.org/ShowSchedule.aspx (select Bantam AAA).
This tiered format anticipates a BC Minor move to split the Bantam AAA division into two tiers next year. BC Minor will not make a final decision on this change before late 2013 but regardless of their decision both Eagles teams will play in the Bantam AAA league in 2014.
