“A” level baseball is an environment for development and skill learning. Physical skills of development, camaraderie, good sportsmanship, and team building are essential ingredients to a rewarding experience.  Player development is reflective of Practice time. There is less emphasis on competition. Commitment will be about 3 times per week; occasionally 4 times. 11U, 13U, 15U & 18U will finish their season by mid July. 11U and 13U will play their games within the Winnipeg South area. 15U and 18U will play their games city wide. All players get equal playing time. 11U and 13U rosters usually have 12-13 players, 15U rosters usually have 14-15 players, and 18U rosters usually have 15-16 players. 11U and 13U players will learn to play almost all positions. 15U and 18U players express preferences, will usually play several positions throughout season. Everybody bats in a continuous batting order. There are unlimited substitutions except for the pitcher. Coaches are often parents with limited experience.

“AA” level baseball is a competitive level of baseball in Manitoba. AA level baseball is an environment to further development and skills and strategies. Commitment will be 4-5 times per week until early July for all age groups, and until late July for those teams that qualify for the provincial championship tournament. There is possibility of Western Canada championships which would further extend the season into August. Baseball is a high priority for players and their families. Players will attend all games and practices. Absences should be rare and may affect playing time. Games are played city wide. Tournaments might involve travel as out of town. This may increase the cost to play, depending on the number and distance of tournaments entered.  Player positions will be determined by the Coaches during the season. This will be determined through practice, fitting the player in an area where they will succeed. There is a fair play policy during the regular season. Stronger players get more time during playoffs. 11U and 13U rosters usually have 12-13 players, 15U and 18U rosters usually have 13-14 players. 11U to 15U - everybody bats in a continuous batting order. 18U - only the 9 fielding players bat. 11U to 15U – there are unlimited substitutions except for the pitcher. 18U - re-entry rules in effect. Coaches are often parents with experience.

AAA Baseball is the most competitive and highest level of baseball in Manitoba. AAA baseball requires a significant time and financial commitment for up to 6 months of the year, depending on the team’s performance and tryout times. Once the team is formed, everyone is expected to attend all practices and games.  Absences could result in a reduction of playing time. League play, of 20-28 games, begins in May and continues into July.  Also up to 3 or 4 tournaments and possible exhibition games will be scheduled during the season.  The number and location of the tournaments is at the discretion of the individual team. Commitment from parents of AAA ball players is also very important.  In order for St James Minor Baseball and the AAA program to be successful for our children, your participation is required.

All players must conform to the following uniform requirements - white pants, yellow socks and green belt.

There is a limited supply of belts, socks, and batting helmets available for purchase from SJAMBA.

All players are responsible for the purchase of your own home and away jerseys, approximately $150.00. Cheque made out to SJAMBA.
