Please check back periodically for updated information

When does the season start and end?


Our House League season will run from (approximately) the week of April 27 to week of August 3.  There will be an end of season Gala Day for T-Ball and Coach Pitch teams on August 8.  Playoffs for Rookieball, Mosquito and Peewee will run from August 10-16.  Bantam and Midget teams will have their own playoff schedule announced during the season. UPDATE: we are anticipating we will enter Stage 3 of the Province opening back up by around July 6. If we are able to get field permits past August, we are looking at the possibility of extending our season into September in order to get a full season in. Updates will be sent out to all players registered as they come in.


Do you offer Fall/Winter programs?


At this time, we do not offer Fall/Winter programs

How much does it cost to register for House League?

Please refer to our 2020 House League Rates for fees per division
UPDATE: we will advise everyone registered of the final season cost once we know the length of our season. We are currently waiting on the announcement from the Province as to when we will be entering Stage 3 which is when we will be able to play games.

How can I register my player?

Please use our 2020 House League Registration Form to register your player.  There is a link at the bottom of the form that will allow you to make payment via PayPal or Credit Card. UPDATE: you do not need to make payment at this time and we will advise you of the 2020 registration fee once we know what the length of the season will look like. At that time we will reach out to you to make payment and finalize your registration. A spot will be held for your player if you register but payment must be made when we announce the season start date. You will receive an email with details and deadline to pay at that time.


Is a uniform covered under my Registration Fee?


Your player will receive a full uniform (socks, pants, jersey and hat)

You will need to purchase a glove, batting helmet, jock/jill and cleats.  Please note cleats are not mandatory for T-Ball and Coach Pitch


Can I make a request for my son/daughter to be on the same team as his/her friend or sibling?


Yes you can. You can make this request on the registration form under the Friend Request field.  Please note we can only accept one friend request per player.  We will do our best to place friend's together however there is no guarantee and balancing players for age, experience and ability is a priority.  SIBLINGS IN THE SAME DIVISION WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE PLACED ON THE SAME TEAM (unless otherwise requested).


Can I request the same coach we had last year?


Yes you can. You can make this request on the registration form under the Special Request field and we will do our best to place your son/daughter on that team but there is no guarantee

Yes you can.  Please submit these requests to Heidi Dombek at [email protected]

Can I request games are played at a field close to where we live?


Unfortunately no.  There are many factors to consider when allocating fields such as ensuring the correct size for the age/division of the players, access to electricity for Rookieball teams, lit diamonds for late evening games, mounds for older teams etc.


What if my son/daughter has never played baseball before?


We welcome all players regardless of skill level to our House League program!  A player assessment prior to the season allows us to build teams with a balance of new and experienced players.  Our focus in House League is to ensure the players are having fun while building on their baseball skills


Will there be tryouts?


No.  Our House League program does not have tryouts but we will be conducting player assessments prior to the start of the season in order to build balanced teams
