EDMONTON PADRES AA BASEBALL

  • Do you like the intensity of competition?
  • Do you want to further develop your baseball skills?
  • Do you want a longer season to play?

If the answer is “YES”, the Rep Program is for you.  It gives players the opportunity to hone their individual and team skills at weekly practices, to demonstrate those skills in competitive games in the surrounding area, and to extend the season through July (and into August at the higher levels).

Rep teams are designed for those player’s with above average ability, commitment and desire to play at higher levels of competition. These levels are identified as Competitive (AA). The major objective will be player development through fair participation by all players on the team up to Provincial round robins.

 

Commitment

Participation on a rep team implies certain commitments on behalf of the player’s and the parent’s. The major commitments are time, travel and financial which also includes fund raising initiatives.  Rep teams typically utilize weekdays for practices (2 to 3 per week), exhibition games, etc. and weekends for games and tournaments based on schedule and travel requirements as determined by Baseball Alberta. Some games are scheduled during the week, depending on the distance teams must travel.  Teams also play during July and August; the length of time depends on the success of the team as it advances through to Provincial Championships and/or post Provincial Championships. Dedication to a rep team will prove beneficial to the player as a valuable learning experience, failure to fulfill the commitments by the player or parent is denying another player a position on the team and will result in a review of the player’s rep privileges.

 

Financial 

Player registration fees cover basic expenses related to Baseball Alberta, insurance, team registration.  Additional rep fees are collected by the association through the team budgets once the team rosters are completed to offset various operating expenses related to the facilities and/or team.  Teams are required to prepare their own team budgets to cover expenses related to additional association fees, travel, tournaments, additional apparel/equipment, etc. The amount of fundraising activities varies per team and will have a direct impact on the final per player cost to the families.

 

Evaluations

Each spring players registered with NEZ Baseball who meet the above mentioned criteria are encouraged to attend the evaluation sessions to try out for positions on the rep team. The evaluations or “tryouts” are conducted under the direction of the respective NEZ Baseball Director.  These evaluations are based upon the player’s age category, direct observation of demonstrated skill, development potential, perceived dedication to the program/coaches and various other factors, this way they are placed at the skill level that is most appropriate for them.

 

All coaches at the rep level are required to meet Baseball Alberta, NEZ baseball requirements and possess current certification.

NEZ Baseball exists to foster and encourage the growth and enjoyment of the sport of baseball by teaching the value of sportsmanship, skills and competition.

Additional player registration fees will be set based on the team budget and will be collected once the team is selected.
