All Star Information
An All-Star program is offered by the St. John's Minor Baseball Association in four divisions: Mosquito, Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget. For the 2015 season we will be establishing Mosquito AAA, AA & A, Pee Wee AAA, AA & A, Bantam AAA & AA, Midget AA, Girls Mosquito and Girls Pee Wee. In order to make one of these teams, players must participate in the try out selection process.
The All-Star committee made up of board members is responsible for overseeing the All-Star program.
AAA All-Star players in Mosquito, Pee Wee and Bantam will play in the division up in house league. These teams will play games throughout the week and on weekends.
Only registered players who indicate an interest in the All-Star program will be contacted when try-outs are scheduled. This option must be selected on the registration form before All-Star Tryouts begin.
The registration fee of $200.00 does not include All-Star play. If a player qualifies for a position on an All-Star team, he/she is required to pay an additional All-Star fee before he/she may attend any tournament play. This fee is $100. All-Star fees cover the cost of tournament registration payable to BNL, equipment provided by SJMBA for the tournaments, extra baseballs, staff for practices, umpires for extra games and some travel expenses for coaches.
There is a $75 fee for a registered player to try-out for an All-Star team.
New for 2015: Mosquito and Pee Wee All-Star players will be given access to a training camp hosted by Ken McLean. This 6 week camp will not only provide a lot of training for players but additional training for coaches as well. The fee for this camp is $125.
- All-Star play involves a significant commitment from the players and parents.
- An additional fee is charged, but the greatest commitment comes in the form of time.
- Weekend or weekday practices and/or games may be standard.
- At this level, each team will play in a provincial tournament, which may include travel.
- Teams will be required to fund raise to offset costs for tournament travel outside St. John's.
Baseball NL (BNL) has scheduled provincial tournaments in which AAA, AA and A teams may participate. A team roster for tournament registration will only be submitted to BNL when all registration and All-Star fees have been paid prior to the deadline date set for that tournament.
