Northeast Zone Baseball has worked hard over the last few years to develop a program that is fun and aimed at player development. Our program has over 400 players and hosts over 50 teams with athletes from 4 to 19 years old.
We are a member in good standing of Baseball Alberta and Baseball Canada and in 2010 NEZ Baseball was the first association in Alberta to receive the prestigious “RBI Approved” designation by Baseball Canada.
The RBI program was introduced by Baseball Canada in 2008. It’s mandate is to:
Ensure that local baseball associations apply core common criteria to ensure that consistent good practice is in place.
To empower parents when choosing a local baseball association for their children.
To ensure that RBI Accredited Associations are recognized through a common approach to branding.
To provide a focus around which all baseball associations in Canada can come together to support good practice in working with children and young people.
To promote and reward registration/membership within Baseball Canada, baseball’s national federation of sport, as well as within the Provincial Baseball Associations.
We feel that by being RBI approved, we can give a parent an easy choice when they are looking for a program to place their child.
NEZ Baseball offers BlastBall for 4 & 5 year olds, Rally Cap for 6 & 7 year olds and Sr. Rookie for 8 & 9 year olds. Each category is about skill development. Kids progress rapidly in the program and can jump right in at any category. These teams play within Northeast Zone. Players progress through Mosquito and Peewee where they play in a league with Northeast Zone, Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan, EABA and Ardrossan. Once players reach the Bantam and Midget categories our teams play in the Baseball Alberta Rural & Recreational Baseball League, and play throughout the Capital region.
NEZ Baseball offers a full season of fun – league play, skill camps, Rally Cap Days, tournaments, the Padre Provincial A program, Edmonton Padres AA program, Fall Ball. Check out the pages for information on our baseball program.
Come join the fun!
