Juniors Division

13-14 Baseball

The Juniors program is for 13 and 14 year olds interested in playing competitive level baseball while continuing to develop their skills. 

The Juniors play against North and West Vancouver teams in the District 5 division at fields in North Vancouver and at our home field at Brennan Park. About half the games are home games and half are away games. Recent years have seen our team in the Mon, Wed, Fri Pool but this cannot be confirmed until closer to season start. The alternative is a Tues, Thurs, Sat pool.

Playing on a Juniors team requires a minimum 3 days a week commitment, i.e. the schedule typically requires 1 game and two practices or 1 practice and two games each week.    Game times are 6 pm. This requires arriving at the field (North Shore or Squamish) at 5pm for adequate warm up.

Playing in the Juniors division requires a greater commitment from both players and their parents than the younger divisions. Families participating will be expected to contribute to ride sharing, scorekeeping and field preparation. In addition, the coaching philosophy for this program is such that those players who have other commitments and can only attend periodically should consider that their playing time at games may be reflective of their overall attendance.

Our goal  is to provide an opportunity to play for every child or youth  in Squamish that wants to play baseball or softball.  This will guide our decisions for organizing the Juniors division, however our ability to support one or two juniors teams will depend on securing a solid commitment from coaches and coordinators. 

Depending on the availablity and commitment of coaches the League may make decisions that include evaluations and tryouts for a limited number of players compared to the total number registered.  If this is neccessary, all efforts will be made to structure it so players are afforded opportunities in Majors A.  The League may also consider other options including a core and development team.

We will be sure to keep parents and players informed as we get closer to the season.  If you are interested in a coaching or assistant coaching role with the Juniors division please contact John Hawkings. johnhawkings@gmail.com
