Midget (18U) Division - Marshall Field

Welcome to the 2020 Vernon 18U baseball season. 18U baseball is for players from the age of 15 to 18. Baseball at the 18U level is competitive and fast. Home games are played at Marshall Field #1, one of the nicest parks in the Okanagan.

In this division we typically offer two levels of play, the AAA and the AA. The AAA level will have players that will have to try out and be selected to play by the coaching staff. The players selected will need to fully commit to the full season, and the rigorous practise schedule. The schedule consists of a minimum 42 games not including tournament weekends or playoffs. Some of those games will involve travel to the lower mainland and Vancouver Island for 4 game weekends. The AA level plays in a competitive interior inter-lock program. The inter-lock schedule changes year to year, depending on how many teams are registered from each neighbouring city. The AA season is a spring season only, usually consisting of 18 games, with playoffs at the end of June. In special circumstances, AA teams can form a summer team to compete at the provincial level.

Currently we are still looking for coaches for a AA team. Please contact me right away if interested.

Making these programs successful and fun takes a lot of work and we would like to encourage any parents and family members to get involved. Whether it's helping with coaching, field maintenance or driving, getting involved with your child's sports is rewarding for everyone. I'd encourage any players on the fence about playing 18U baseball to email me or call me, and I can answer any questions you may have. The sooner we get our registration numbers together, the easier it will be to form teams, and secure coaching.
