Rep and Select Team Tryouts - 2019
Tryouts are open to all players within the Aurora-King boundary area. For those players located outside the Aurora-King boundary, please obtain a release before attending tryouts for Peewee and below from your home association.
THE TRYOUT SCHEDULE IS POSTED AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS ARTICLE. RETURN HERE OFTEN AS DATES CAN CHANGE ONCE POSTED.
All players must register online before attending a tryout. Click on the “REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN” banner on the AKBA.ca home page to begin your registration. There is a one time tryout fee of $20.00 and payment can be made online by credit card.
For Minor Mosquito and above, there is a NEW tryout and player selection process for 2019 teams as the AKBA develops a new competitive team structure:
- Tier 1 coaches will be announced no later than September 10th
- Tier 2 and/or Select coaches will be announced once tryouts begin
Tier 2 and Select teams will be offered if a coach is available, diamond time is available, and based on player registration and interest.
All players wishing to play competitive baseball must attend try outs for the Tier 1 team.
This includes players wishing to play Tier 2. The Tier 1 coach has the first selection right to choose a player looking for a spot on a Rep team. All players not selected for Tier 1 will be eligible for the Tier 2 team.
Players who decline a spot on the Tier 1 team will be asked to provide reasons to the VP of Rep & Select.
For Rookie ball, we will continue with a Major Rookie, Minor Rookie, and Select Rookie teams. Players who are unsuccessful during tryouts for the Major or Minor Rookie teams are invited to attend the Select tryouts as well. Players can also register directly for the Select team at this level.
Players must attend a minimum of two (2) tryouts. If circumstances do not allow for this, please ensure you speak with the head coach of that team.
For any questions, please contact the Lyndon Edwards, VP of Rep and Select at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck to all players participating.
