The Junior division is for 14 year olds as per the little league age chart (located on the CMB Website). The Junior evaluations are conducted by a third party independent evaluator(s) on April 4 & 5, 2020 and are mandatory. If you are unable to attend your evaluation, CMB reserves the right to place you on a team. Groups and times will be provided in March. PLAYER REQUESTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
CMB will determine the number of Junior teams dependent on the number of players registered in the following age categories: Intermediate, Junior and Senior and the amount of diamond time allocated to CMB. Cochrane Minor Baseball may ask players to move up an age category to even out teams and maximize the number of players playing in Cochrane.
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.
