22U Update

We wanted to provide everyone with a quick update on our plans for the 22U age level (Players born in the years 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003) for 2022. In the fall we indicated that we would have tryouts in the spring once the weather allows us to be able to do that. Since that time things have changed and we have had to update our approach and I wanted to share those changes.

We have made the formal decision to field a 2nd team at the 22U level and will be entering that team into the regular 22U loop with COBA. As a result of this we need to proceed with selecting both teams and collecting registration fees from all players in order to ensure we have  two viable teams to begin the season with. Our coaches will begin selecting players for both teams without conducting on field tryouts as we can't wait until the fields are available to move forward.

Paul Alves (palves314@gmail.com) is our head coach for the 22U Team 1 team.

I am happy to say that Doug Crawford (slugo91@hotmail.com) and Lee Okrainec (77coachlee@gmail.com) will be co-coaches for the 22U Team 2 team.

We would like to move ahead so there are a few things that will be taking place over the next few weeks.

--------------------------------------------------

In order to be considered for either of the two 22U teams you will need to register and pay a $20 registration fee. For those players who registered in the fall to attend fall workouts you do not  need to do this again.  You must complete this registration in order to be eligible for consideration on either team. Please sign up here ASAP (https://hhmba.sportngin.com/register/form/155375781). This is the same registration we used in the fall so don't be concerned about the title which is 2022 Travel Teams Tryout Registration.

--------------------------------------------------

Coach Paul will begin making offers for the 22U Team 1 team on Saturday, March 5th. Once his offers have been accepted players will have one week to complete final registration and payment of the registration fee of $405. This fee has been adjusted to reflect the fact the team/players will be responsible for the cost of any uniform choices that are made by the team. The registration link is - https://hhmba.sportngin.com/register/form/312518904

--------------------------------------------------

Once coach Paul has completed filling his team Coach Doug and Coach Lee will begin making offers for their team. Once offers have been accepted players will have one week to complete final registration and payment of the registration fee of $405.

 

This will be the first year that we field two teams at the 22U age group and we are happy to be doing this and want to ensure that as many players are able to play baseball as possible. We realize that this is very little advance notice but we appreciate the support of everyone involved to do our best for all these players.

Please contact our Sr. Rep Director Scott Stubberfield (scott.stubberfield@hhmba.ca) or our President John Behara (john.behara@hhmba.ca) if you have any questions related to these updates or the 22U teams in general.
