Our age structure is different than that of the American organized Little League. We operate off the calendar year like our schools do.
AGE GROUPS: In 2019 the age groups are:
Peewee (U13): 2006 and 2007 born players Bantam (U15): 2004 and 2005 born players Midget (U18): 2001, 2002, and 2003 born players SIBL(18+): 2000 and older born players
PEEWEE: Peewee ball is a great division, introducing lead-offs for the first time to most youth ball players. This division plays ball throughout the city, playing games against 5 other clubs. At approximately mid-season there are opportunities to play on prospect teams and tryout for GVBA (Greater Victoria Baseball Assoc.) summer (All-Star) ball. Peewee teams play on a field with 70 foot base paths and pitch from 48 feet. (Little League has 60 ft bases and a 46 ft mound)
BANTAM: There may be some changes to how Bantam is structured this year in Victoria by GVBA. We'll keep you posted. There will be assessments at the end of February/beginning of March. Dates will be posted soon (watch the web site for details – www.layritzbaseball.com).
DON'T REGISTER LATE:Players that register with us are numbered as they register. Please register on time as we may not be able to provide for late comers if teams are full.
