For ages 9 & 10 (born Sep 1, 2010 – Aug 31, 2012)
In Minors, 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!
For ages 11 & 12 (born Sep 1, 2008 – Aug 31, 2010)
Majors play with the same 46’ pitching mound and 60’ base path as Minors, but the strength of hitting, speed of pitching, and level of play is noticeably higher. All genders are welcome.
The Majors Division also forms a tournament team (by tryout) which plays in the District 7 (city-wide) Championships during the second week of July. The winner of District 7 moves on to Provincials, the winner of Provincials to Canadians, and the winner of Canadians to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania!
All Minors & Majors players need to wear their own plain grey baseball pants (no stripes or ribbing). Beacon Hill has a supply of new and lightly used pants which can be purchased for a low cost. If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
All Minors & Majors players need to have their own glove, batting helmet, rubber cleats, and wear pelvic protection to every practice and game.
Team bats will be available for use, but players may also use their own bat as long as it has the USA Baseball logo indicating that it is approved for use in Little League. Bats without this logo will not be permitted!
How are teams selected?
Prior to the start of the season, usually in late March at the indoor turf at the Oak Bay Rec Centre, registered players are assessed by coaches who then form teams with the goal to balance of ability across teams.
Times & Locations
The regular season runs from early April to mid June. Players can expect to practice twice a week and play 1-3 games each week. For players who make the tournament team, play extends into the first half of summer.
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).
If you have questions about our Minors or Majors baseball programs or would like to participate as a volunteer or coach, please contact our VP of Baseball, Brad Muir.
