9U Division baseball is for players 8 and 9 years of age who are interested in learning the basic fundamentals and skills development of baseball within a recreational baseball program. This is accomplished by stressing and maintaining active participation by all players during the game of baseball played in accordance with the Official Rules of Baseball by Baseball Canada, with the incorporation of the rules contained in the official SAMBA-Baseball Handbook. Being a developmental level of baseball, focus is towards knowledge, good sportsmanship and fair play, all players are rotated and given opportunity to play various positions during the course of each game.
Games and Practices:
Games are played on weeknights (6:30 pm to 8:15 pm), twice per week either Monday/Wednesday OR Tuesday/Thursday. A Mid-Season tournament is scheduled prior to the end of May and a Year End tournament is scheduled following completion of regular season play prior to the end of June.
SAMBA will do their best to provide a level of balance in the selection of House League teams without performing player evaluations at this level. At the House League level, SAMBA supports players requesting to play either underage in a higher division of ball or overage in a lower division of ball within a maximum one year age differential and pending their level of skill/experience or specific circumstances such as playing with a sibling. Each player may be evaluated prior to the season to ensure the level of play is deemed appropriate.
As part of the on-line league registration process, please identify your request in the the "Special Requests" area then contact the House League Director to ensure your request is noted and further details are provided. The respective division homepages will contain information related to evaluation dates and timings, once evaluated and if accepted you will be subject to that respective division's registration fee.
