This is a developmental and recreational league for players, coaches, and umpires, where having fun, as well as the development of individual player skills and team social skills, is a priority to ensure everyone involved enjoys their baseball experience. Teams consist of 11-14 players.
Teams play three times during the week; generally with two practices and one game each week. Practice days are at the discretion of the coach. The outdoor season begins the first week of May weather permitting and ends at the end of June with a playoff tournament. The season is completed before the end of the school year.
Cost: $325 which includes a Sox Sweater
Location: Greater Edmonton area
The option for Tier 1 teams for the 2021 season will be determined at house assessments.
This option is for House League 13U players with better than average abilities, looking for additional practices, coaching, tournament play and entry into the Provincial A-Level playoffs in July.
Tier One teams will not play in the SWEMBA House league. Instead, Tier One teams will play against similarly skilled teams from other clubs in the Edmonton area in the YEGA league. Games can be on any weekday and travel to the surrounding cities will be required (for example, Devon and Le Duc).
Tier One players will be identified during the Spring evaluation process. Players will be approached and will have the option to accept the invitation to the Tier One team, or play on a House Team. $105 Extra fees will apply if you a selected and accept a tier-one roster spot. This is to cover extra games and umpire fees.
If moving onto provincial play in July, extra fees will apply.
