Minor A Division

8- 10 year olds

This Division is composed primarily for 8-11 year olds.

Minor A is the division where players learn to pitch. Players have usually played one or more seasons in Minor B or Minor A, although players can be placed in this division with no previous baseball experience.  

All players wishing to play Minor A are required to attend KLL pre-season assessments. Coaches will draft players onto teams; consequently there will be no friendship requests. Teams will be balanced based on player ability and age, and each team will have 12 players.

This Division marks the continuing progression from T-Ball to Baseball, as we add stealing bases, player pitching, and nine defensive players in the field. Between games and practices, players can expect to play ball twice a week (and 3 times per week on occasion).  Scores are kept, standings maintained and there are playoffs.

Players should remain in this Division for 1-2 years for development reasons. In this Division, players who are recommended by their coach have the opportunity to be called up to play Major B games, if the Major B game is not on the same day as the player's own team game. For keen and able Minor A players, playing up in Major B is an excellent chance to play more ball at a higher level, often against other League's teams.

Player Commitment

One to two games per week or weekend (3 innings approx. 2.5 hours in duration)

One practice during the week (1.5 hours long)

All games will be played at Quilchena Park South and teams will practice at either Quilchena Park South or Kerrisdale Park South.

Parent Commitment

Each parent is required to help out with their child's game on a rotating basis. The duties include field set up/take down for the home team, bench parent, snack duty, score keeper and game coordinator.  Duties will be assigned by the team manager at the beginning of the season and training can be provided if required.  Your commitment is appreciated and helps make our league run more smoothly.
