Welcome to the homepage for the 2019 Vernon Baseball Association (VBA) 15U Bantam Division.

This division is open to all players who were born in either 2004 or 2005.

This year we will have one 15U 'AA' and several 'A' teams.

The registration for the 'AA' squad finishes up by the end of January. Mark Pastro will be the Head Coach of this team. Winter Training for the AA Team at the Indoor Cage is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday's from 6:30-8:00 PM & Sunday's 5:00-6:30 PM starting on January 9th, 2019.

The AA Team will be playing from early April to the first weekend in August, and the schedule includes several trips down to the lower mainland. All home games are played at Marshall Field. Any players who register for the 'AA' and do not make it will be refunded the extra fees, and dropped down to an 'A' Team.

The registration for 15U Bantam 'A' starts the beginning of February. The baseball season goes from early April to the end of June. We will have an evaluation day that determines player skill level and team placement. 'A' baseball is based on fair play so every player gets equal time on the field. The teams are chosen based on skill level to keep them comparable.

'A' Game schedule is based on an interior interlock involving potential games in Rutland, Salmon Arm, Kamloops, Kelowna, and Penticton. Teams will practice two times a week, and play games on the weekends. There may be opportunity to go to a tournament in the Okanagan, coach dependent. All home games are played at Marshall Field. If you're interested in helping coach an 'A' team, please indicate on your registration and email me directly.

Lastly, it is important that we have parent involvement at both AA & A. Team managers, scorekeepers and field maintenance are required from every team and parents will be expected to help out.
