7U


Our 7U division is an entry level program that is designed to introduce children to the game of baseball, keeping them active and engaged, while learning the skills of the game in a fun, safe and informative environment. The 7U division plays a maximum of 4 innings allowing kids to hit off a tee or from a coach/machine pitch. Each team bats through their whole lineup each inning so there are no maximum amount of outs in any given inning. No scores or standings are kept at this level. Approximately 6-8 kids will be placed on teams in order to keep them actively involved.

Age Requirements

Age limits for this division are 4-6 year old. We are adding 4 year old's as a trial period in 2022 without the underage wait-list as we have had in previous years.

For next season, April 2022, you will have to be at least 4 as of December 31st 2021



Q - When is registration?

A - Registration opens November 1st 2021 and will be open until March 5th 2022.


Q - How much does it cost to play?

A - 2022 Registration prices are as follows...

Early Bird -$132.50 (Nov 1 - Nov 30, 2021)

Regular -$157.50 (Dec 1 - Feb 25, 2022)

Late - $182.50 (Feb 26 - Mar 5, 2022)

**Registrations cancelled AFTER March 5th 2022 are subject to a $50 cancellation fee to cover club expenditures associated with the registration process. 


Q - What kind of commitment does 7U require? How many days per week?

A - The short answer is 2 days a week. 1 x 1hr practice on a weeknight and 1 x 1hr game on Saturday mornings. The schedule is not set for the 2022 Spring Season yet but in years past practices are usually Monday night's. 


Q - Where do we practice and play games?

A - Ed Fisher Park just off Happy Valley Rd is the primary location for all 7U activities but have occasionally used AT Gordon Field off Happy Valley or Ruth King School. 


Q - How long is the season?

A - The 2022 Season will run from April 9th 2022 until approximately June 25th 2022. 


Q - What equipment does my child require?

A - The only must haves are a helmet and glove. During COVID there was no sharing of equipment so we asked parents to bring their own bat. At this point we will have a team bat for everyone to use however that may change along with any change in COVID protocols. Baseball pants and cleats are optional. 


Q - What are my volunteer requirements?

A - We will be going back to our 1 volunteer shift per registered child (up to a max of 2) in 2022. This could be in the concession, at a tournament or various other events. For those planning on doing your volunteer duties, we will send info at a later date on when we will be collecting these checks leading up to the season. You will have the option to buy out your volunteer duties should that be of interest, the buy-out fee will once again be $200 per child registered up to 2 kids max per family. To be clear, we don't want your money, we would much rather have the support as there is a lot that goes into these activities and as our club and community continues to grow, so will the amount of things we have to do to make this all run smoothly. You will have the option to pay the buy-out fee during the registration process or at any time as a stand alone item in our web store. 


Q - What are my fundraising requirements?

A - In years past we have done the Purdy's Fundraising chocolate bars but we have decided on a different option for 2022. We will be selling coupon books courtesy of www.greatervictoriafundraising.com that supports a bunch of great local Victoria businesses. The requirement will essentially be the same as the Purdy's program for both taking part or buying out. Each family will be required to purchase 3 books ($25each) per child registered, up to a max of 2 kids. You can then sell those booklets to recuperate your funds. There will also be a "BUY OUT" option should you not want to take part at a cost of $40 per child registered up to a max of 2 kids per family. If you choose not to take part, the option to buy-out your fees will be available during the registration process or as a stand alone item in our web store. Like the volunteer checks that will be collected ahead of the season, that will also be the case for the fundraising funds as well. If you want to take part and purchase your "buy-in" fees during registration or from the web store you can, but please be aware that we don't expect the books to be finalized and ready for delivery until the end of 2021 for use in 2022. 


Q - My son or daughter is advanced in their abilities for 7U, can they move up to 9U?

A - It is possible. Each child will be looked at on a case-by-case basis with the final decision resting with our player agent. There are factors such as available space and team size to consider before the kids will be moved up so there are no guarantees. If they do get move up, they will still have to do the required time which would now be 3 seasons.

*MUST be at least 6 years old to be considered for move-up to 9U. Each move-up will be looked at on a case by case basis by the Player Agent.

**If you have any questions about moving up, please reach out to our Player Agent at taaplayeragent@gmail.com
