13U Baseball

Age Requirements:

13U is for players born in 2007 and 2008.

This division is tiered with both A and AA teams playing an interlocked season with the other Greater Victoria Baseball Association parks leading to the City Championships.

We anticipate having 4 teams in the A division. The season will start at the beginning of April and run to the end of June, with play-offs starting mid-June.

Games will be played not only at Carnarvon Park but other fields in the Greater Victoria area, including Gordon Head, Triangle, Peninsula, Esquimalt and Layritz. As a result, game slots and frequency will not be consistent on a weekly basis. Coaches will select game slots at a pre-season scheduling meeting and will inform families once the teams have been selected.

13U Prospects Team and Fees:

For those players in A wanting an additional challenge, we have the Prospects (additional cost of $53) where the top players from each park form a team and play against other parks from Victoria and up-Island. These games are double-headers played on Sundays from mid-April through May.

Fees

If your player is chosen to play on a Prospects team, a new $53 registration fee will be generated and sent to you by email from our online store for registration of your player onto the Prospects team. These nominal fees cover additional costs incurred for field usage, umpires and uniforms.

13U AA Team and Fees:

13U AA assessments are scheduled for March 7th and 14th from 4 - 5 pm on the Indoor Sports Field at Oak Bay Recreation Centre.  Registration starts at 3 pm.

Fees

If your player is selected to play on the AA team, a new $116 registration fee will be generated and sent to you by email from our online store for registration of your player onto the AA team. These fees cover additional costs incurred for field usage, umpires and premium uniforms.

13U Summer Ball:

13U Summer Ball consists of three levels. Players can try out for city-wide assessments for A, AA, and AAA teams to represent Victoria at tournaments, Island Zones and Provincials.

Coaching:

This league is run entirely by volunteers, coaches included!  It is our goal to have a minimum of 2 coaches per team with 2 parent helpers (to help out at practices and games) and 1 business manager for the team (to send email reminders to the team families on behalf of the coaches) for each team at the this level. 

Each team will ultimately determine how they would like to structure their coaching staff, but the following is a rough guideline of what is entailed with each role:

Head Coach/Manager (1):

Assistant Coach (1):

  • Must submit a criminal record check prior to season start (done annually).  Follow these instructions: http://www.carnarvonballclub.com/pages/crc
  • Must complete an online NCCP Level 1 coaching certification (cost to be reimbursed by the association): http://nccp.baseball.ca/register.php
  • Attend every practice and game
  • Assist with practices, drills
  • Run warm-ups
  • Base coaching and/or running the pitching machine

Team Business Manager:

  • Organize team volunteers for field prep and score-keeping
  • Liaise with Head Coach/Manager for team communication
  • Collect player availability for practices and games

 Parent Helper (2):

  • This is not an official coaching role, does not require a criminal record check and you will not get the glory of wearing a coaches shirt...but you will be greatly appreciated by parents, kids and coaches.
  • Involves bringing your glove and helping out at all practices and games.

Parent involvement:

All families are required to assist with team duties. These duties consist of score-keeping, field prep at ALL SIX regular season home games in addition to concession duties. Don't worry! We will provide training opportunities for these duties, so no advanced experience is required.
