FREE BC Girl's Baseball FESTIVAL - Complete

This is a FREE FESTIVAL of baseball celebrating our BC Girl's Baseball Pre-Season Development Series. It's a 1hr & 15min event Feb. 8 at 9am focussing on fun drills & games for girl's of all ages & abilities, even if you're brand new to the sport. Coaches are the best youth mentors in the country & the Langley Events Centre makes this Festival a HOMERUN.  So, come give baseball a try, sharpen your skills or just to have some fun... 


Completed - Coach Training for "Girls at Bat" - FREE - April 16 & 17 (6-9pm)

Jays Care Foundation, in partnership with Baseball BC & Plan International Canada, is excited to host a two day Girls At Bat “Hitting it out of the Park” training session for BC coaches interested in instructing & leading female athletes. This session will give you knowledge & confidence to coach & improve girls in sport & life. 

This was a very successful event with participants left feeling the content, insight & knowledge was valuable to their coaching, leading & parental tool box...!


Girl’s Day Festivals

Baseball BC is excited to partner with local baseball associations bringing you Fun Girl's Day Festivals.  Girls of all ages will have the chance to work with female mentors and coaches as they develop baseball skills and play with and against other like-minded girls. The girl's will enjoy the time learning the game of baseball and developing skills.  This will be a unique experience for any young player to participate in whether or not they are playing in a league already.  Our trained mentors and coaches (many with Women’s Team Canada experience) will build confidence, promote inclusivity, and provide a fun environment for new and experienced players alike.  Whether your daughter has played since t-ball, or she just wants to try out a new sport, get her out to this event!  Sport is so important to girls' healthy development, and we recognize the importance of giving these young players a safe place to further develop their physical literacy and stay active.  
It's also time to recognize that not every young female ball-player wants to be pushed into softball.  Although a great game, it is just different.  Baseball is as different from softball as hockey is from ringette.  With more opportunities presenting themselves for the female baseball player, we encourage you to register and witness the movement for yourself.  We welcome all skill levels, and require no previous sport experience.  All we ask you bring is a ball glove, a smile, and a willingness to have FUN. 

We are excited to host these festivals throughout BC; so, come out and try baseball.  Unless on a team playing in a jamboree thats hosting a Festival (Kamloops, Surrey, Victoria, etc.), registration is required.

Register now by clicking on a date & location best for you.

Girls "Come Try Baseball" Development Series - Cancelled Due to the Success of BC Girls Baseball Instructional League above

Due to the success of the BC Girl's Instructional Baseball League below, we are unsure of the availability of this development series.  If there is a strong demand from girls, through registration below, we will look at offering these Monday evenings again. More info is below in hopes girl's will register for sessions beginning sometime in May through to August...

Whether you play baseball or just want to try for the first time, come out Monday evenings with other like minded girls to have fun & sharpen your skills.  Practices are lead by Director of Player Development & former elementary school teacher Al Forman, and often provincial & national players are there mentoring the girls as well.  So, if you like FUN & want to give it a try or challenge your skills, development sessions are to be confirmed at a later date but traditionally have been Monday's 6pm in Burnaby at Kensington Park (No sessions on holiday's - Victoria Day May 21, BC Day August 6).  Hope to see your registration & stay tuned.  We will confirm dates in May or fully refund registrants the $20 Development Cost if there's no demand.
