Chase Batchelor – 15U Director

Welcome to the homepage for the 2018 Vernon Baseball Association (VBA) 15U Division.

This division is open to all players who were born in either 2003 or 2004.

This year it is looking like we will have one 15U 'AA' and possibly two 'A' teams.

The registration for the 'AA' squad finishes up by the end of January, but there is still time at a later date to register on a case by case basis. Winter Conditioning Practices are Tuesday’s starting at 7:30. These run from Jan 2 – March 27. We will be organizing some additional spring training sessions prior to the start of the season, which will be part of the try out process.

The AA program will be playing from Mid April to (potentially) the first weekend in August, and will have to make additional trips down to the lower mainland. Travel to the coast will be kept to a minimum. 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 drop down to 'A'.

The registration for 15U 'A' starts the beginning of February. The baseball season goes from early April to the end of June. We 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 fair. ‘A’ Game schedule is based on an interior interlock involving play in Rutland, Salmon Arm, Kamloops, Kelowna, and Penticton. Teams will practice one or 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.

AA Coach is Dennis Gehrmann. If you’re interested in helping coach a ‘A’ team, please indicate on registration and contact Director directly.

Lastly, it is important that we have parent involvement. Team managers, safety officers, scorekeepers and field maintenance are important assets to any team, and are becoming hard spots to fill. If you have any desire to help out, don't hesitate to ask. With many hands, we have the best chance of ensuring our young players have a successful season.
