NEW for season 2023
The ABAA will no longer organize a woman’s team. If your daughter would like to play in a 100% woman’s team, we invite you to contact the ABFO (l'association de baseball féminin de l'Outaouais) www.abfo.ca/. Please be advise that all girls/women are welcome in join our mixed teams!
Registration Form for the 2023 Baseball Season
Girls and boys aged 5 to 22 (2001 to 2018) who live in the Aylmer area (J9J / J9H).
It is important to remember that baseball is a team sport. Before committing, please consider if your child will be absent for a long period or if your child will participate in more than one sport during the summer period. When there are too many scheduling conflicts, the player gets little benefit, while his team suffers from his many absences.
Regular registrations: from February 10th to March 31st, 2023
Late registrations: After March 31st, 2023, the ABAA cannot undertake to accept registrations. You take the risk that our teams are complete following regular registrations and that we cannot find a place for your child. He could be placed on a waiting list.
Please contact us directly for the U9 and + categortys as they are currently at full capacity.

ABAA offers levels A and B baseball as well as the Rally Cap program. Level AA is represented by the Tyrans team, an organization affiliated with BQO. For more information, refer to the website http://abeobaseball.ca. The participation of a child at one level or another depends on his skills and his willingness to keep his commitments to his team. Level AA requires a serious and sustained commitment, the numerous practices and games being generally compulsory. Level A is a little less demanding, because there are fewer practices than in AA, but the presence at almost all the practices and games is highly recommended, even required. Level B, on the other hand, is considered recreational. It is not uncommon to see players in the B level who are very talented but who do not want to commit as much as required by levels A and AA.
If your child participates in AA trials, you must absolutely register with the ABAA as well in order to reserve a spot in case your child is not chosen for the AA team. If your child is selected for the AA team, the amount will be refunded to ABEO.
DO TEAMS TRAVEL
Usually, all the teams travel to play outside the Aylmer sector, except the Rally-Cap. The Atom, Mosquito and Peewee B teams will play their games in the west of the City (sector: Aylmer, Hull, Chelsea and La Pêche). For the Bantam B and Midget B teams, they may be called upon to travel anywhere in the City of Gatineau (sector: Aylmer, Hull, Chelsea, Gatineau, Buckingham, Val-des-Monts). For the Atom A to Midget A teams, they will also be called upon to play a few games in Ottawa.
PERIOD OF ACTIVITY
The Rally Cap Program runs from June to August.
For the U9 to U22 categories, the fitness and evaluation activities will start April 15, while the season will start in early June and run until September.
U9 Atom category and above are training and playing games at least twice a week. The team head coach
will contact you a few weeks before the start of the season. All teams participate in the playoffs that have
during the last 2 weeks of the season. Parents are asked to plan their vacation accordingly.
In order to maximize the use of our lands and better balance the schedule, it is important to note that it could in the event that jousts are scheduled on weekend days (especially Sundays).
The ABAA is working with the Outaouais Girl's Baseball Association (ABFO) to provide all girls who want to play baseball with the opportunity to do so. ABFO provide level A and B baseball for girls. For more information, please refer to http://Facebook.com/BaseballfemininOutaouais.
Your child needs a baseball helmet with two ear protectors, a baseball glove, a baseball bat, baseball gray pants and running shoes (or rubber cleats: suggested for Mosquito and older). The use of metal cleats is permitted starting at the Bantam division.
An athletic support with a protective shell for men or a pubic protector for women is also strongly suggested.
COMMITMENT AS A PARENT
Like all amateur sport organizations, the ABAA is run by volunteers and is supported by the City of Gatineau. Coaches, assistant coaches, administrators and any parent who gets involved, even for a single task, are essential to keep the organization running smoothly. The ABAA could not function without them. In general, parents are involved as long as their child plays baseball. Ideally, and out of fairness for all, parents should all chip in for their team and our association. At a minimum, they are required to adhere to the Code of Conduct (the link to which can be found on our Web site) and to attend their child's games.
COMMITMENT AS A PLAYER
The more a child invests in the sport he practices, the more he benefits from it. Ideally, players are required to participate in all games and practices. In reality, this is unlikely, mainly due to the holidays. It is imperative that you notify your head coach in advance if your child is unable to attend a game or practice. In the LBO league, a team will lose by default if it shows up with less than 8 players. In such a case, the whole team will suffer.
WILL THERE BE TOURNAMENTS OR CHAMPIONSHIPS?
All teams from U9 to U18 will participate in an end-of-season tournament. All Level A teams will participate in a tournament outside of the region for which player registration fees will be paid (not included in the registration price).
HOW WILL THE “RALLY CAP” PROGRAM WORK?
For our youngest players, the Rally Cap program will run from June to August. Your child will be assigned to one of the teams grouped by age (8 players per team). The activities will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays (2017-18) or Tuesdays and Thursdays (2016) at the Vieux-Verger baseball and soccer field. The program consists of different baseball-focused workshops. Also, during the summer, kids will have the opportunity to play 6vs6 games on the baseball field.
For Rally Cap Transition players (born in 2016), there will be more games than in previous years and there will be an introduction to the ball-throwing machine.
WHAT IS THE JUNIOR A U22 PROGRAM
The years of birth to play Junior A are 2001-2002-2003-2004.
Participants must register by making a full deposit of the amount of 350$ to participate in the training camp and if not selected to be part of the team, they will be reimbursed. This includes 20 games in the NCOBA (Ottawa, Kanata, Seaway etc) at a rate of two games per week. The team will be composed of 15 players to allow players to work, referee, etc. 12 players will be present at each game (a schedule will be made accordingly to know who plays in advance).
We apply the latest Governement of Quebec Guidelines.
