ELITE BASEBALL IS HERE...


Hello Niagara Baseball Parents

We have some exciting news to share with you! In conjunction with the GNBA and the Niagara District, we have applied for, and been accepted to join the Elite Baseball League of Ontario (EBLO) 

The EBLO has taken the place of the AAA programming for the Major Bantam, Minor Midget and Major Midget age groups. It has grown from 4 teams in 2014, to over 50 teams, at three different age groups (15U, 16U & 18U) and 13 different regions. In that time, the EBLO has seen more than 80 players pursue their dream of playing college/university baseball. Athletes are given the chance to compete at College showcases like the Prep Baseball Report, Perfect Game, as well as the opportunity to play for high profile teams like the Ontario Youth Team, Ontario Summer Games, and International tournaments.

We have committed to provide a high performance off season development program for both our players and coaches, with the expectation that we will not only enter the EBLO league in 2020, but also compete! We will expect the same level of commitment from our players. We have some great baseball people coming on board to help with our winter development program, which we will share with everyone once finalized. 
Coaches have been selected to represent the teams for the 2020 season.

15U - Jay Burdon
16U - Darrell Kemp
18U - Sean Krawchuk

We have now completed most of the administrative work that goes into joining a new league, and we are focused on the Baseball Operations side of the program. Player identification camps are now set to begin, with the final tryouts wrapping up in early September. Dates dates are listed below for each division.  Players chosen for a roster spot will be asked to sign a players contract prior to the September threshold date. Once the final teams are selected, they will play a fall exhibition schedule, which will lead into the winter development program. 


Tryouts will take place at Oakes Park in Niagara Falls as follows:

15U Bantam jay.burdon@gmail.com

> August 14-7:30-9:30pm



16U Minor Midget  nat.kemp@hotmail.com
