This level of baseball is for players aged 10 (Second Year Minor) to 12 who have the skill and desire to play a higher level of baseball. This age group will hold try outs in March to determine the 2 or 3 teams that will compete in the District 3 spring interlock season. All evaluations are conducted by a third party independent evaluator(s). Coaches at this age will have attended NCCP clinics and will continue to develop their coaching skills by ensuring they are teaching the players the proper baseball skills and mechanics, developing appropriate strategies along with fair play and personal skills. Coaches at this level will ask the players to dedicate themselves to baseball to develop the necessary skills and team chemistry required to compete at this level. CMB would also like to encourage our players of this caliber continue to play in the summer baseball program.
Attendance at the evaluation sessions is mandatory at this level.
***Cochrane Minor Baseball Crush travel teams play in Little League Alberta's District 3.
Every effort will be made to accommodate all registrants. However, as this is competitive baseball, tryouts are mandatory to select the players on the team. If a player is not selected for a travel team, they will be given the opportunity to play house level Minor/Major baseball.***
