In the Minors division players are introduced to pitching, base stealing and official baseballs. Players are rotated through infield and outfield position at the discretion of the head coach. Umpires are provided by the league.
All players registered in this division are required to attend pre-season assessments. Assessment times are selected during registration.
In order to balance the teams to enable a fun, competitive, and successful season for all, we do not take requests at this level.
Teams will have 1.5-hours fielding practice and one 1-hour batting practice each week. These practices are usually on different weekday evenings. There may be additional batting practice times, depending on cage availability and coach interest.
Regulation games can be scheduled during the week or on the weekends, sometimes on Saturdays and Sundays. Games are 6 innings long and can last 2 to 2.5 hours. Players are expected to arrive a minimum of a 45 minutes before the game for warmup activities. Between games and practices, players can expect to play ball three times a week (and 4 times per week on occasion). There is some travel throughout the season to play games against other Little League associations i.e. New Westminster, Hastings, South Vancouver etc.
Scores are kept, standings maintained and there are playoffs at the end of the season to determine a division champion.
Team rosters will normally consist of 12 players. Teams are selected by a draft process. Schedules will be posted in late March.
Parents will be placed on a rotational schedule to help with duties such as field prep (practices and games), score-keeping and concession.
