NYBA Blues Rep & Select Teams

North York Baseball Association is pleased to field over 20 competitive rep teams for the 2022 season.

During its 50 year tenure, NYBA has built a strong competitive organization comprised of great players, coaching and management staff.

We are proud of the many successes of our rep and select teams which includes numerous TBA championships, several OBA championships - 12UAAA championship in 2021 and in 2019, a CNE championship. [See Team Stories].

The NYBA is governed by the Toronto Baseball Association and the Ontario Baseball Association.

NYBA rep & select teams are traveling competitive teams that require an extra level of player and parent commitment. The season runs May to the end of August with approximately 20 regular-season league games, plus tournaments and playoffs.

Games/Practices:
Home games are played at Bond Park, in North York while away games can be played either within the city or in other cities in Southern Ontario. Most games (one, sometimes two games) are held on the weekends.

Select away games are within the GTA. Games are held weekly but are not scheduled on long weekends.  All select teams compete for the TBA East Championship usually held in mid-August and the winner has the option to compete for the Select Ontario Championship usually held Labour Day weekend.

Clinics and practices during the winter months are held at Toronto Mets Facility, 100 East Beaver Creek - Unit 4 Richmond Hill, Ontario.

Player Fees:
All rep & select teams share in the overall administrative expenses of the North York Baseball Association. Team fees also include full uniform; umpires and any additional expenses the team incurs such as private coaching.

Every player pays a deposit when signed-up and the balance of the fees are pro-rated in installments during the year.

Coaching Staff:
All NYBA coaches are certified through the Ontario Baseball Association. They, along with their assistants and management staff are committed to developing baseball skills and promoting team fair play among players and parents. Every coaching staff focuses on the physical and emotional well being of every player, and promoting a healthy playing lifestyle.

It is the goal of every rep/select team to be competitive in every game played. Players are continually evaluated in their baseball skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to make every reasonable effort to ensure every player has a meaningful role in accomplishing the goal.

The NYBA executive maintains an open line of communication with both players and parents and makes every effort to accommodate the concerns of players and parent members regarding these issues and matters.

The North York Baseball Association is always looking for parent coaches for its Rep/Select program. If interested please reach out to Heather | Marketing Co-ordinator | heather@nyba.ca
