To prospective 13u Select (Team 2) players and parents:

My name is Ross Lapointe, who along with Daniel Iny, will be coaching the 2020 North York Baseball Peewee (13U) Select (Team 2).  We invite you to register for Team 2 tryouts!

The main focus for the players of Peewee Select (Team 2) baseball are to have fun, develop strong baseball skills and fundamentals, athleticism and to play competitive baseball.   

The team will consist of players in birth years 2007 and 2008.  Players will be selected on the basis of:  coachability, attitude, skill and ability to commit to the team/schedule.  

Tryouts:

The tryout will consist of:  Friday, November 8th from 6pm to 8pm with a possible second tryout to take place on Friday November 15th from 6pm to 8pm.  Only successful candidates from the 1st tryout will be invited to any 2nd tryout (to be notified via e-mail within 48 hours following the first tryout).  The kids will rotate through fielding, pitching, batting, speed and agility evaluation stations.  The tryout will take place at Out of the Park Sports indoor complex at unit, 162, 1510 Birchmount Rd, Scarborough, ON M1P 2G6.

Team Schedule:

> Practices

From December to April we will aim to have approximately 6 indoor practices at an indoor baseball training facility.

Beginning in May, we will be having 2 - 3 events (practices and/or exhibition games) per week.  If our field assignment follows the previous yearÃ??Ã?¢??s schedule, we will have one weeknight and one weekend practice and a Sunday league game.  We will also add exhibition games whenever possible (as a coaching and parent group, we will decide on this once the team is formed).   There is typically a break beginning in July, and then team activity resumes intensely towards the end of July until the Toronto Baseball Association (TBA) weekend, August 7th to 10th (weekend after the August long weekend).

> Games

Our team this year will be looking to play approximately 20 to 25 games total.

Regular Season Games:  The select schedule usually plays 10 games in the Toronto Baseball Association loop.  Those games are mostly on Sunday afternoons/evenings.  

Exhibition games:  Our team will be looking to play exhibition games against other select teams.  This will happen in May and sporadically throughout the season. 

For all games, it is requirement to arrive on-time, one hour before the scheduled start-time.   

> Tournaments

We will most likely schedule a couple of tournaments plus the Toronto baseball Ã??Ã?¢??playoffsÃ??Ã?¢?? (TBA as mentioned above).  For tournament weekends, the likely requirement is a game Friday night, two games Saturday, and possibly games on Sunday as well.  There are no practices or games on long weekends.

Select Ontario Championships �?�¢?? If we win the TBA�?�¢??s, we will represent Toronto East at the Ontario championships on Labour Day Weekend.

Expectations: 

If selected, we expect the players and parents to treat this as a serious commitment.   It is important that players arrive on-time for all practices and games (one hour early for games). 

> Time-Off

As a team, we will discuss how many weeks to break for in July (eg. optional practices only/no games) for vacation time.  

We expect players to make most games and practices.  Come May, it is requested that players miss a maximum of 2 events (games or practices) over the May and June, and a maximum of 2 events over July and August.   

It is also requested that players be at all tournaments, unless previously communicated. 

> Financial Commitment

The cost will be approximately $850, going towards uniforms, umpire feeÃ??Ã?¢??s, league feeÃ??Ã?¢??s, equipment, exhibition games, tournaments, indoor sessions, etc.  Players will also be requested to purchase a North York bat bag in May (~$60).  There will also be the option to purchase other North York gear (sweatshirts, etc.).  Players are also asked to provide their own bats and helmets.

> Parent Involvement 

Parents play a huge role in this team.  We expect to have a strong, supportive, and positive fan base.  

> Player Independence

It is expected that once the player is at the field (game or practice) that they are totally independent and focused on the game or practice.  They will need to look after their own equipment and water, and accordingly, we request that parents not be at the bench, especially during games.
