9U - Novice/Tadpole All Stars

The 9U Tadpole All-Star Team (Novice division for some of you) is made up of the best 12 players available in the division, 1st or 2nd year players. Depending on the interest in any given season we could field more than one team should the league feel that the division is strong enough. Of course it also comes down to do we have enough coach's/support to take the teams on as it is another commitment.  Now to those new to the division or those that are not, here are a few FAQ's that we can hopefully give you an answer to...

Q - When does the season start?

A - In a perfect world we will start the assessment process in late May or early June to ensure we have enough time to prepare the kids. This team and any associated games, practices, assessments CAN NOT interfere with your spring house ball team.  

Q - What does the assessment process look like?

A - There will most likely be 2 assessments.  The first assessment will be an open try-out for all those interested Tadpole parties to come and show us what they have got!  After that assessment the coaching staff/assessors will cut that team down to a certain size.  Once that group us reduced to their liking they will host a second assessment for a "game like" scenario.  Upon completion of the second assessment the coaching staff will choose their roster.

Q - How many teams will they choose?

A - It really all depends on the amount of interest from the players.  We have had years that all we have is one and we have seen years where some parks have 3.  We suppose it is a good "problem" to have when your organization and it's players want to play more baseball further into the summer. In 2018 we will have 2 teams, 1 "A" Team and 1 "B" Team.

Q - What are we playing towards?

A - There are usually 2 tournaments that these teams can play in.  If we form 1 team they will play in both the "fun" tournament and the "Tadpole Regionals" but if we form 2 teams the "B" team will most likely play in the fun tournament and the "A" team in the Regionals.

Q - What are the costs?

A - There are not any "registration" costs per say but there could be some other fees.  In years past the Tadpole Regionals have been held as far away as Comox so there could be a night in a hotel depending on where they are being held.
