Summer Season

Playing on a summer season team exposes our players to a higher level of competition and additional learning opportunities. Summer baseball can create memories and friendships that last a lifetime. ​

The summer baseball season requires a commitment from players, parents and coaches of up to 7 weeks. Between tournaments, games and practices, players can expect to be on the field almost every day of the week. 

Summer baseball at the Mosquito level includes:

  • Mosquito AAA Tier 1 - 11U

  • Mosquito AAA Tier 2 - 11U

  • Mosquito AA - 11U*

  • Mosquito A - 10U

*The AA team can only be fielded after filling up the AAA Tier 1, Tier 2 and A teams, if there is enough interest. 

Each team can expect to play in a minimum of two tournaments, exhibition games and then compete in zones for the ability to attend Provincials. All games are agains equally tiered competition. 

Registration for summer teams will be announced near the end of the spring season. Watch for emails and check back to the website regularly for registration links.
