11u Mosquito General Information

11u SEASONS

Spring Season (April-June): Mosquito is the division where the game of baseball starts to take shape, it is the year players begin to pitch, catch, hitch pitched balls and steal. New players are welcome. Team are formed through evaluations and a draft, this typically happens early April. Depending on the number of teams/calibre of skill the association may opt to tier teams within the division. Some years there may be the opportunity for KMBA to create a development team or development program to run through the spring to run parallel or seperate from the house division.

Summer "RiverDogs" Season (June - July):
In May, players are given the opportunity to try out for one of KMBA's Summer Select teams.  Each summer KMBA is dedicated to fielding as many summer teams as possible, this is often dictated by the number of 11u A teams we field in the spring as well as interested players. These all-star teams represent KMBA as Riverdogs play in tournaments against other associations from around the province culminating with the provincial championship.

Fall Baseball (September - October):
A time for development and fun. Fall baseball is comprised of players who will be entering the division in the following year as well as players who will be moving into their second year. Fall typically includes general training and at practice scrimmages.

Winter Baseball (January-March):
Winterball is run in our first class indoor training facility: Sussex Insurance Centre on McArthur Island. Winterball is designed to offer the players instruction on many of the fundamentals that can get lost in the busy Spring Season. This back to basics approach gives players a fun environment to hone abilities and learn new aspects of the game and keep active during the winter months. These sessions are run as 'clinics' allowing participants to choose the skills they wish to work on.
