Players will start the evaluaion process in the youngest age category they qualify for. We use the official Little League Age Categories to provide flexibility to move players between age groups. As we are a fairly new league, our registration numbers are a little smaller in our older age groups. This flexibility allows us to move players up a division to help provide a sustainable program at all levels.
For 2024, we are expecting to continue to grow! We are offering 3 different types of registrations this season:

House League Only: Players interested in playing house league only, will play Tuesdays and Thursdays with our modified play rules.

Hybrid Players (House League + Travel Team): Players interested in playing house league plus tournaments, will play Tuesday and Thursdays on a house league team, plus they will be on a travel team that competes in 2-4 tournaments with their travel team.

Travel Team Only: New this season! These players will play on a travel team, and will attend multiple tournaments. This is a heavy weekend commitment throughout April, May, and June and there may be additional costs above registration fees based on the number of tournaments played. Players can expect to practice during the week. Please note: our Senior Travel Team will play in a ladies league, which will be double headers on Wednesday evenings.


House League: Tuesdays and Thursday evenings at our NW location (Dalhousie/Varsity/Edgemont) or our SW Location (Cedarbrae/Glamorgan/Canyon Meadows). Your player will be placed on a team based on the "home location selection". Teams will play home games and away games, however, we try to limit travel as much as possible.


All players will work on catching, throwing, hitting, base running, and sliding. In addition, players will be encouraged to specialize in either catching or pitching, but can choose to learn both as well. All teams will work with specialized instructors throughout the season.


Game play will progress though out the year based on age and skill of different groups. Our Minor and Major teams will play 6 vs. 6 games with modified rules. Our Junior and Senior teams will play 9 vs. 9. The rules for these games will depend on age group.


Festivals weekends will include games and other social events.
