CONTINGENT UPON PARTICIPATION LEVELS FROM PLAYERS AND PARENTS, TP IS PLANNING TO FIELD SELECT TEAMS IN THE ROOKIE BALL, MOSQUITO, PEEWEE AND BANTAM AGE CATEGORIES
The Toronto Playgrounds Select program is an extension of the house league program. Playing select gives players the opportunity to play more baseball at a higher skill level without having to make the larger time and financial commitment that is involved with rep baseball. The select team is similar to a “house league all star team.”
There are tryouts involved for select teams, and players have to make the teams. There is a registration fee for the select teams which is in addition to the house league registration fee. The fee will depend upon the number of tournaments the team enters and the type of uniform they decide to use.
Select players must also participate regularly and appropriately in our house league program. When playing house league games the players will be expected to wear their house league uniforms, just as they will be expected to wear their select uniforms when playing their select games.
Toronto Playgrounds House League Baseball is looking at being involved in the West Toronto Select Loop for the 2012 season. This loop involves teams from Etobicoke, Weston, York, etc. We are planning to field teams in the Rookie Ball (players born in 2003 and 2004), Mosquito (players born in 2001 and 2002), Peewee (players born in 1999 and 2000), and Bantam (players born in 1997 and 1998) divisions. Teams will require at least 15 interested and committed players, two or three interested and committed coaches, and at least one parent willing to serve in a manager’s capacity.
There are set nights for select games in each division, and we will be informing you of those as soon as we have confirmed them with the loop organizers.
If you’re interested in participating in the TP Select program or if you have any other questions please contact us at [email protected].
