NMBA 11U Division
2024 Season Player Birth Years: 2013-2014

In the 11U Division we will focus on the basics rules of the game of baseball in a FUN learning atmosphere.

There will be a mix of baseball-related games, athletics movement exercises and drills to keep the kids engaged.

11U Spring Ball plays fair play rules.

All players play at least 3 defensive innings per 6 inning game, and all players bat. We conduct pre-Spring Ball evaluations to get a sense of player skill level and form teams of roughly equal overall skill, ensuring that each team is competitive in their league. Coaches are strongly encouraged to give all players an opportunity at all positions (where they are comfortable and won't be at risk of injury). Coaches are strongly encouraged to give all players an opportunity to pitch. The primary objective given to Spring Ball coaches is to make sure all their players finish the season wanting to come back next season. Coaches typically divide players into station groups during practice of similar skill level, so that each station skill can be scaled up or down in a way that is appropriate for the skill level.

Prospects Ball: 11U Spring Ball players who desire a more competitive experience will have the opportunity to try out for Prospects Ball. Prospects Ball  runs concurrently with Spring Ball and provides extra games and practices to these players. Players who play Prospects Ball are required to fulfill their commitment to their Spring House Team. The Prospects Ball program is dependent on other Vancouver Island baseball association participation. Information will be sent out after Spring Ball Season has begun.
