Minors Baseball

Minors baseball is for players who are league age 9 and 10.

In Minors baseball, players pitch from a 46’ pitching mound and play regulation baseball games of 6 innings with an umpire. Base stealing (without leadoffs) is allowed. Emphasis is on skill development and good sportsmanship. All genders are welcome.

At the conclusion of the regular season in mid June, there are tryouts for a tournament team which plays in the District 7 (city-wide) Championships during the first week of July. The winner moves on to Provincials!

To play with Beacon Hill Little League, your child must reside or go to school in our catchment area.


The regular season runs from early April to mid June. Players should expect to have 2-3 practices and 1-3 games each week.

Home games are played at Hollywood Park on Monday and Wednesday evenings, and Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Interlock away games may take place mid-week.


Practices are held at Brooke Street Park and Hollywood Park.

Home games are played at Hollywood Park.

A handful of interlock games during the season may require travel to other parks within Victoria (Ambassador Park, Hampton Park, Centennial Park, Layritz Park, Jerry Hale Field).


Regular Season – $225 ($200 if registered before Feb 1)


Players need to purchase and wear their own plain grey baseball pants (no stripes or ribbing, please).

Each player will receive a hat, long-sleeved practice shirt, and socks — theirs to keep.

Team jerseys will be distributed and must be returned at the end of the season. Please bring a $50 deposit cheque to your team coach made out to ‘Beacon Hill Baseball & Softball Association’. The cheque will be destroyed when you return the jersey at the end of the season.


Players need their own glove, batting helmet, and rubber cleats.

They must also wear pelvic protection (a “jock” or “jill”) to every practice and game.

Team bats are supplied. Players may purchase and use their own bat as long as it has the USA Baseball logo indicating it’s approved Little League. Bats without this logo will not be permitted!

How are teams selected?

Players league age 9 – 12 are assessed by coaches at the Oak Bay Rec centre just prior to the end of March in an effort to balance ability across teams and ensure player safety.

“Playing up” to Majors

All players must register according to their birthday. If you feel your player would be better suited playing in a higher level, please send me an email to registrar@beaconhillball.com including your player’s name, age, and your request. Decisions around playing up are multifactorial, including skill, safety, emotional maturity, roster space, etc. The decisions will be made by our coaches.
