SCMB 2016 Tournaments

Tournaments – SCMB has changed their tournament process for 2016. I would like to request that you mark these dates on your calendars and try to keep them open, as I will be requesting help on these weekends for umpire support.
** June 10-12 > Midget AAA, Pee Wee AAA tournament (will require as many hands as possible)

Baseball Sask to send a Pee Wee select team to the 2016 Baseball Canada 13U National Championship in London, Ontario

Baseball Sask is excited to announce that we will be forming a Pee Wee Selects Team to represent Saskatchewan at the 2016 Baseball Canada 13U National Championship in London, Ontario from August 25-29. All Pee Wee Division players in the province are invited to attend an evaluation camp to be selected for the team. The Pee Wee Selects Team will not interfere with a players local association team commitments. Players will practice and play with their local association team during the season and are only required to attend one of the evaluation camps hosted by Baseball Sask for team selection. Dates for evaluation camps will be announced at a later date on the Baseball Sask website – www.saskbaseball.ca.

All players interested in attending one of the evaluation camps should fill out the player information form below. Players that submit a player information form will also be contacted directly by email with announcements regarding dates for evaluation camps. Please submit the player information form to Head Coach of the team, Nolan Bracken, at the Baseball Sask office by email at nolan@saskbaseball.ca.

There will be player fees associated with being selected for the team. Baseball Sask does supply a travel grant to cover some of the cost, but all additional costs will be the responsibility of the player and parents. More detailed information regarding player fees and tournament information will be covered during the parents meeting at the evaluation camps. If you have any additional questions or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to seeing you at the field this summer!
