SWEMBA's Levels of Play

The White Sox operates three levels of play for most divisions.

  • Rally Cap has only one division
  • 9U has two options:  9U house or 9U elite. The elite team plays in the 11U House league

Our AAA program is led by the Edmonton Expos Association.



AA Tryouts

SWEMBA offers one or two AA teams at 11U, 13U, 15U and 18U. The Black team usually competes in Division 1 and the Grey team in Division 2.

To make one of these competitive teams, your player must attend tryouts in March. 


Tryout and Team Selection

Players are moved through stations to assess the five tools of baseball. Throwing velocity, throwing accuracy, catching ability, hitting, running speed, and coachability are evaluated.  

SWEMBA uses a combination of outside, independent evaluators and members with players not in that age category to assess the players.

The Team Selection Committee is composed of the Technical Director, Competitive Director, Division Director, Coaching Director and other qualified evaluators. 

Team Selection for a AA team is based on the level of ability demonstrated at tryouts. At the AA level, a friend request does not contribute or impact your team placement. A player will be offered a spot in either the Black or Grey team. If they a player elects not to take his/her spot on the Black team, they cannot elect to be moved to the Grey team. If a player does not take their offered spot, they will be moved to house/tier 1 league and must attend house evaluations in April.
