Player Selection to the Baseball Alberta teams will be held in FEBRUARY 2022.
Head Coaches will be responsible for the selection of the team using both objective and subjective evaluations. It is the responsibility of the Head Coach to recruit and select other member of the baseball community to help with the athlete selection process. By using both objective and subjective evaluation tools, coaches will be able to select the best team for their age classification based on what skills, attributes and attitude of the available talent pool. This flexible model ensures that Head Coaches are accountable to the CMB Board of Directors on their athlete selections.
The Baseball Alberta program will have the team(s) selected prior to the Little League evaluations. This will provide athletes with the flexibility to register / try out for both this program and participate in the Little League program if need be.
Due to the demand for this type of program there will be players from out of Cochrane that will want to participate. In order to remain competitive and ensuring that as many Cochrane players get to continue their development, it is proposed that AA teams maintain an 80% (10 of 12) Cochrane player limit and AAA teams maintain a 75% (9 of 12) Cochrane player limit.
