2017 - Summer Ball

2017 Trappers Summer Season

Coaches and Players

It is that time of the year again to start thinking about Summer Ball.  Fielding teams in the summer is dependent on the number of registered players in each division during the spring season.  With our registration numbers up this season we may be required to field teams and a variety of different levels in each division.

*****This of course is completely dependent on coach and player interest as well as player talent level*****

We will accept coach applications and hold initial tryouts to determine interest and talent level for the following teams;

    Super 7    (no organized league, exhibition games and tournament play only)

    Tadpole

    Mosquito A (first year players only)

    Mosquito AA (first and second year players, but can only be fielded after A team is selected)

    Mosquito AAA tier two (first and second year players)

    Pee Wee A

    Pee Wee AA (allowed three import players)

    Pee Wee AAA (allowed three import players)

    Midget AA     

 

In order to be eligible for summer ball a player must have participated in at least one half (1/2) of their team’s games in the Division Spring League.

 

We are currently accepting coaching applications.  The deadline for applications is May 1, 2015.  Player tryouts will be scheduled during the month of May, which will give us an indication on what teams we will field.   Coaching application    https://nldiamondsports.sportngin.com/register/form/780699478

Regional and Provincial Coach Certification

The new Baseball Canada Regional/Provincial Coach program is designed to provide valuable and accessible resources and training to coaches who are working with children in the introduction to competition level baseball programs.

The program is comprised of seven parts:
 

  • Baseball Canada's On-line Module - a complete resource to help get you started and a place to revisit often while you coach children's baseball;
  • Initiation Coach Clinic - a Provincial/local 4-5 hour, on-field/gym clinic that you can attend only after completing the On-line Module. The clinic covers the fundamentals of the game and some ethical decision making;
  • Teaching and Learning Clinic - a Provincial/local 4-5 hour, in-class clinic that you can attend only after completing the On-line Module. The clinic covers organization, explanations, demonstrations, supervision and feedbacks;
  • Skills Analysis Clinic - a Provincial/local 4-5 hour, in-class clinic that you can attend only after completing the On-line Module. The clinic covers the basics of error detection and correction for basic baseball skills;
  • Planning Clinic - a Provincial/local 4-5 hour, in-class clinic that you can attend only after completing the On-line Module. The clinic covers the structure of a practice and the design of a simple season plan.
  • Pitching & Catching Clinic - a Provincial/local 4-5 hour, in-class or gym/fiield clinic that you can attend only after completing the On-line Module. The clinic covers basic pitching mechanics as well as fundamentals for catchers.
