The purpose of the Fall program is to give our players a head start on next year and to extend the playing season while the weather is nice with a focus on devleopment. This is also a chance to bring players together that were in different programs and teams over the regular season. Fall Ball is 5 weeks starting in September and ending by Thanksgiving, October 9th.
The age groupings will depend on registration, but the following age groups are planned. The actual divisions will be adjusted based on the registration numbers. The structure will to be to advance the format for players (eg: leadoffs and pickoffs for 12U players)
There are no prerequisites to Fall Ball - players may have played Little League, Baseball Ontario, or similar games like Softball. However, Kanata Fall Bal is not an entry level program - we expect that all participants have played ball before and are looking to extend or add to their season.
There are four components to the Kanata Fall Ball program:
Practices: Two practices a week will be scheduled for 10 scheduled practices. Rained out practices will not be re-scheduled. During this time will be focused is on player development - to pick up additional skills and get the most out of their ability.
Cubhouse Training: Once a week traning sessions will be held at the Kanata Cubhouse. These will be focused on improvinging the player.
League Games: Players will play one league game a week on the weekends during the day. These will be in Kanata or may be elsewhere in Ottawa.
Tournaments (optional): Kanata hosts one tournament in September which players are encouraged to attend if their schedules allow. There may be an opportunity to travel to Montreal for a tournament if there is desire from an age group to do so. Tournament participation fee is $50.
Caps: Players should wear a cubs cap provided from their Rep or Interlock team. If you don't have one already then they are available for $25 from the league.
