Minor: (U11) - Birth years 2012 and 2013
Major: (U13) - Birth years 2010 and 2011

Players will start the evaluaion process in the youngest age category they qualify for. We use the official Little League Age Categories to provide flexibility to move players between age groups. As we are a fairly new league, our registration numbers are a little smaller in our older age groups. This flexibility allows us to move players up a division to help provide a sustainable program at all levels.
For 2023, we are expecting to have 1 senior team (who will play mostly in tournaments), 4-6 Junior Teams, 5-8 Major Teams, 6-9 Minor Teams, and 3-5 Mini Minor Teams.


House League: Tuesdays and Thursday evenings at our NW location (Dalhousie/Varsity/Edgemont) or our SW Location (Cedarbrae/Glamorgan/Canyon Meadows). Your player will be placed on a team based on the "home location selection". Teams will play home games and away games, however, we try to limit travel as much as possible.


All players will work on catching, throwing, hitting, base running, and sliding. In addition, players will be encouraged to specialize in either catching or pitching, but can choose to learn both as well. All teams will work with specialized instructors throughout the season.


Game play will progress though out the year based on age and skill of different groups. Our Minor and Major teams will play 6 vs. 6 games with modified rules. Our Junior and Senior teams will play 9 vs. 9. The rules for these games will depend on age group.


Festivals weekends will include games and other social events.
