The Prospects program is an extension of the Spring House Program for 11U and 13U A and is intended as an opportunity for more competitive players (summer ball candidates) to further challenge and develop their abilities against the top players from other baseball associations within Greater Victoria.
A similar program runs for the 9U division where a Tournament team is created. This team continues into the summer to play in tournaments on the island through July and may play some exhibition games against other Tournament teams from Victoria during the Spring Season.
Our program has three distinct playing seasons, depending on player age and ability:
- Spring (April to June) – for recreational and developmental baseball at the 5U Blastball, 7U T-ball and 9U Novice levels and for competitive city-wide house ball at the 11U Mosquito, 13U PeeWee, 15U Bantam, 18U Midget levels and we have Co-Ed teams in the South Island Baseball League (SIBL).
- Summer (July and August) – All-Star competitive baseball at the 11U Mosquito, 13U PeeWee, 15U Bantam and 18U Midget level; where teams are made up of players from across the city.
- Fall (September and October) – recreational house ball for 9U Novice to 15U Bantam
2018 Season Schedule
Exact times will be posted once the number of teams have been determined.
Spend an hour on Saturday mornings with an upbeat and enthusiastic session of Blastball! Within each session, our coaches work on building simplistic hitting and throwing foundations for each individual player. Coaches may require parent involvement in this division.
Based on the Rally Cap Program, each session has 3 teams that rotate through batting, fielding and a drill. By rotating though each station the players are kept engaged and reduces the opportunity for boredom to set in. Practices are held on Monday and/or Wednesday evenings with games on Saturday mornings.
This is the first level where players start to pitch and catch in the game. The spring games are played in-house with some year end tournaments available around the city. In the fall season teams travel around the city and play against other parks. Practices are held on Tuesday and/or Thursday evenings with games on Saturday afternoons.
11U, 13U, 15U & 18U
Games and practice times can vary as these divisions travel around the city playing against other parks. Weekday games start between 6pm and 6:30pm and weekend games can be at any time.
This division plays an interlocked season with the other Greater Victoria Baseball Association (GVBA) parks (spring and fall) in full player-pitched games in the quest for the City Championship. For those players wanting an additional challenge GVBA runs a Prospects League where the top players from each park form a team for extra experience. 11U is the first division for Summer Ball through GVBA where players can try out for A, AA, and AAA to represent Victoria at tournaments, Island Zones and possibly Provincials.
2017 was the first year that the division was split into A and AA tiers. Both tiers play an interlocked season with the other Greater Victoria Baseball Association (GVBA) parks (AA includes up island teams) with longer base paths than 11U and additional rules (including Balks and stealing 1st on a dropped 3rd strike) in the quest for the City Championship. For those players in A wanting an additional challenge GVBA runs a Prospects League where the top players from each park form a team and play against other parks from Victoria and up the island. GVBA offers a summer for 13U with two AAA teams, one AA team and some A teams who all have a chance to go for the gold of a Provincial Championship. Fall season is available for all players.
At GHLP this division get to play under the lights against teams from across the city when they are at home! Base paths are now at 80’ and metal cleats are allowed. Fall season is available for all players. Summer Ball through GVBA is available so players can represent Victoria with players from other parks at tournaments, Island Zones and possibly Provincials.
A full season league running from April till early August (spring and summer seasons combined into one) and includes weekend tournaments on and off the island. Fundraising opportunities are available to help with the additional cost. Fall season is available for all players.
With 90’ base paths it is just like the MLB. Teams play for the city Championship (we are the 2016 Champions) instead of the world series.
