We wanted to provide everyone with a quick update on our plans for the 22U age level (Players born in the years 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004) for 2023.  As we did in 2022 we will field a 2nd team at the 22U level and will be entering that team into the regular 22U loop with COBA.

Paul Alves (palves314@gmail.com) is our head coach for the 22U Team 1 team and Doug Crawford (slugo91@hotmail.com) will be the head coach for the 22U Team 2 team.

In order to ensure we are able to evaluate players and select teams prior to the return to school in the fall 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 using our online registration system. For the 22U teams only there will be no registration fee as we are unable to provide a tryout shirt for these players.  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/201209637). 

We have scheduled the following tryout times:

Sunday, August 14th, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM - TSP #3
Wednesday, August 17th 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM - TSP #3
Sunday, August 21st, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM - TSP #3 (Rained out)

Monday, August 22, 2022 @ 8:30 PM - Fairgrounds #1 (Rained out)

Tuesday, August 23, 2022 @ 8:00 PM - Gellert #1 (Cancelled)

Sunday, August 28, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - FG1

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

Coach Paul will begin making offers to players after the 2nd tryout and then both coaches will finalize offers after the third tryout. Once an offer is received the player has 24 hours to accept the offer and to pay a non-refundable registration deposit fee of $150.  This will offset the spring registration fee which we expect to be in the $450 range but will be determined in the spring once we finalize our budget and get updated pricing from the town. By paying this fee you are securing your spot on the team for the 2023 season. The remainder will be paid prior to the start of the season.

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

This will be the second year that we field two teams at the 22U age group and we want to ensure that as many players are able to play baseball as possible. The HHMBA consulted with the 22U coaches from last year and we all felt that having two teams was a very positive experience and something we want to continue. We decided to add in the fall tryouts and team selection this year so that we can allow both teams to work out as a group if necessary during the winter season.

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.
