2018 Pre-Season Skills Assessments

We will be holding pre-season skills assessments as follows:

Indoors in the gymnasium at Quadra Elementary (3031 Quadra Street at Finlayson):

Outoors at Jerry Hale Field (Cook & Hillside):

If your young player is between the ages of 8 and 12, or if they are hoping to play up (e.g. 6-year-old hoping to play Mini Minors rather than Tee-ball), please bring them and a glove to at least one of the assessments. It’s critical that we know the current skill level of all children in order to place them on the team best suited to their abilities to ensure that everyone has a good time.

If you have not already done so, you may register in person for the 2018 regular season at the assessments.

Little League Victoria for Ages 13 to 16

Does your young National superstar turn 13 this year? No problem!

In 2018, Little League will be available in Victoria for players age 13 to 16!

That’s right! BC Little League District 7, of which National Little League is a member, will be fielding some Intermediate, Junior, and Senior “Victoria Little League” teams for children up to 16 years old. We will be interlocking with teams from the lower mainland.

Now your child can continue to enjoy all the advantages of Little League (low registration fees, equal playing time, at least two practices and at least one game per week, and the chance to advance to the Provincial, Canadian, or World Championships) beyond age 12!

If you are available to volunteer, please contact us before the game. We will be needing an experienced scorekeeper and maybe an announcer– applications from responsible children considered!

September Sunday Skills Clinics– Everyone Welcome!!!

National will be holding some Sunday afternoon baseball skills clinics at Jerry Hale Field (1280 Hillside Ave, Victoria) in September, after the start of the school year.

A team of coaches led by Coach Don will be running some drills that cover all the fundamental skills: batting, fielding, and pitching. Your young player is sure to pick up some useful tips from their decades of experience, and have some fun too!

The activities will be targeted at boys and girls 8 to 12 years old.

Sundays Sept 10, 17, 24, and October 1
2pm to 4pm

The clinics are absolutely FREE, regardless of whether you were registered to play in 2017 or not.

The only requirement is that your child live or go to school in the catchment area.

Beginners: come get a taste of baseball!

Beginners are welcome! No equipment is necessary, but if you have it, please bring a glove and a batting helmet and wear a jock or jill and appropriate clothing.

Returning/experienced players– keep your skills sharp in the off-season!

We are hoping that some new 2018 prospects will show up, so please invite your friends!

See you there!
