The Greater Victoria Baseball Association invites all Midget age players (15 to 18 years old) wishing to play BC Minor Midget AAA baseball to register for the 2012 Season. The 2012 Midget AAA team will play in BC Minor’s competitive Midget AAA League. The 44-game regular season starts in early April and ends in late July. The home and away games will be against eleven other BC Minor AAA teams concentrated on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. In addition, if players and parents wish, the team can enter Tournaments and increase the number of games played. Eight teams qualify for the Midget AAA Provincial Tournament at the end of July. A Provincial Select Team advances to the National Championship while the winner of the Provincial Tournament qualifies for the Western Canadian Championship Tournament.
The GVBA’s high performance teams reflect our fundamental commitment to player development. To achieve this goal, we believe it is necessary for all our players to play, even if this means games are lost that might otherwise be won. Our performance is measured by the success of our graduating players.

Midget AAA Manager Jay Longpre began his extensive ball career in Victoria. He was a member of the Victoria team that won the Junior National Championship in 1983. He has many years of coaching competitive baseball at multiple levels including Bantam AAA, Midget AAA, Premier and College. He scouted for the New York Yankees in the mid-nineties and was the General Manager of the previous two independent pro teams in Victoria – the Victoria Capitals and the Victoria Seals. It is Jay’s strong belief that, “the Midget AAA team is a key member of the GVBA high performance family as it completes our High Performance Program and provides more playing options for our kids. We now have a key developmental layer to our Junior and Senior Premier teams. As the AAA Manager, my goal will be to work closely with our combined coaching staffs to develop and graduate as many boys as possible to the next level of competitive baseball.”
Midget AAA Costs:
Per player costs for the 2012 Season (including regular season travel and accommodation) are expected to be less than $3,000.
