15U AA – Program Outline

The 15U Bantam Division is a tiered division where athletes have the opportunity to tryout for our AA or “Rep” program, the highest tier offered by WRSSBA. Our 15U AA program is designed for experienced players who are invested in the game of baseball and generally have participated on top tiered spring teams, in addition to seasons of summer baseball.

While our program places an emphasis on development and helping athletes reach their potential, however, there are no-fair play rules as we play 9-man baseball at this level. It is important to note that this is a single season program, where once the team is selected in February, they will compete as a team until August throughout an extended league season, playoffs and potentially Provincial Championships. At this level we offer a paid Head Coach, the cost is covered by the team and as such there is an additional fee on top of the regular registration fees.

If you have any questions about whether this program would be a good fit for your child, please do not hesitate to contact 15U Division Manager, Taylor Clift (taylorclift49@gmail.com).
