Each player needs a glove and a helmet with a chin strap. If he/she wishes to bring a bat that is okay although we provide bats for each team.  We suggest that you bring water to keep your player hydrated during the game.  Running shoes will be okay or soccer cleats.

All players receive a baseball cap, jersey and pants (on a date to be determined in May at Martingrove Gardens). All players MUST wear the full uniform, including the pants for all games and practices.  We are not insured and your child CANNOT PLAY if they are not in full uniform (especially the pants), for games and practices.

Yes, if a player feels they are ready to play up for midget they should speak to their coach and he can contact Kimberley Baird (the VP for the level) and his/her name will be placed on a call-up list. When a midget team is in need of a player your player could be called up for the game.  Midget plays on Friday nights at Centennial Park, Optimist Diamond and on Thursday nights at Ourland so if you have a Friday night game you must play your bantam  game.

Yes, we always need coaches and assistant coaches. We ask that all parents help out with the coaching in the games and practices, it is more fun if everyone gets involved.  We see the “coach” as the main contact person but everyone else “pitches in.”  If you want to be a head coach or assistant coach please mark it on your registration form or contact Kim Baird at kimberley.m.baird@gmail.com.
