In 2021, we are looking into various options. We currently have diamonds secured on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays in Dalhousie. We are hoping to add another diamond location in the south. We are also looking into league play and tournament play distiction for those looking to play in the Summer Competitive program.
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.
Players will play 6 vs. 6 games with modified rules. The rules for these games will depend on age group and skill. Please see the rules page for more details.
