- U15 AAA Swift Current 57’s Tryouts
My name is Craig Kilshaw and this season, I am the Head Coach of the 15U AAA Swift Current 57’s. I’m very excited about the upcoming year of baseball!
This will be our second year in the Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League. Our league will consist of teams from Regina, Saskatoon,Yorkton, Alameda and East Central. Our schedule has increased from 24 to 28 league games this year. We are looking to play a total of 50 to 55 games including tournament play.
We will be playing in 4 tournaments this season. First will be Legasse tournament over May long weekend in Regina, our home tournament June 9th-11th, Okotoks tournament over Canada Day long weekend, and Evan Thomas tournament July 14th-16th in Saskatoon.
The Provincial tournament will be played on the August long weekend and the season should conclude by the second weekend in August.
We will be playing most weekends (Saturday and Sunday games) along with some weekday games.
Tryouts for the 15U AAA team will be held April 17th and 18th at Ford Field, located in the upper parking lot of the Iplex. Time TBD.
Practices will begin on April 20th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The following week we will practice from 5:30pm-7:30pm and practice will be held weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for the beginning of the season and once games begin we will hold practice twice per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:30pm-7:30pm.
Players need to be registered through SCMB before tryouts.
If your player is interested in trying out for the team, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 7th. I will then send out a more detailed email to all registrants by April 9th.
We expect players to be fully committed to ALL games and practices. Being that we are in a very competitive league, playing time and at bats will vary. It will be ‘FAIR PLAY, NOT EQUAL PLAY!’ If you have any questions regarding commitment level, the team or tryouts, please feel free to contact me.
