  • There is a 50% discount for the registration of a third child from the same family, and a 100% discount for the fourth.
  • * Atom: if your child is chosen for Atom A level, an additional fee of $ 50 will be required. Atom A level requires a jersey, umpires and scorekeepers, which is not the case at Atom B level.
  • The registration cost includes the baseball cap and the team jersey. Also, the registration costs reflect the fact that there will be no more fundraiser (ticket draw) organized by the ABAA.
  • Each team, depending on their budget, can organize fundraisers or require parental contributions to cover expenses (ex : tournaments, team apparel, end of season party ...).


CLIENTELE

Girls and boys aged 5 to 18 (2002 to 2015) who live in the Aylmer area (J9J / J9H).

COMMITMENT

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.

LEVELS OFFERED

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.

From the Atom category, there are practices or games at least twice a week. The team’s head coach will contact you during the first 2 weeks of May. All teams participate in the playoffs which take place from mid-August. Parents are asked to plan their vacation accordingly.

In order to maximize the use of our fields and better balance the schedule, it is important to note that before the end of the classes (around June 24th) it could happen that games are scheduled on weekends.

GIRLS BASEBALL

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. The ABAA allows girls to join a mixed team and / or an all-girls team. ABFO and ABAA provide level A and B baseball for girls. For more information, please refer to http://Facebook.com/BaseballfemininOutaouais.  Depending on the number of teams, we want to form all-girls regional B leagues at level U11 - Mosquito and U13 - Peewee. At U11, U13 and U16 levels, the ABFO will form A teams (Rapides de l'Outaouais) who will play in the LBO.

EQUIPMENT REQUIRED

Your child needs a baseball helmet with two ear protectors, a baseball glove, 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.

* The ABAA has an agreement with Marc Sport for gray baseball pants at a cost of $ 20 (plus taxes).

 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, from one to eleven seasons. 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.
