BC Girl's Instructional League


POSTPONED (April 7, 2021)

After much discussion and reflection, Baseball BC (the Provincial Sport Organization), has elected to postpone all in person events that are administered by Baseball BC at this time.

We have come to this conclusion based on the high number of infections that are making it potentially unsafe to proceed at this time. When coupled with the fact that provincial programming &/or events may assist in cross contamination of Covid-19 or its variants through the mixing of cohorts, we do not feel it is appropriate that we proceed at this time. It is very important to ensure we are encouraging a safe return to play only.

Please note that this does not include or effect club play or teams you may be currently registered with.

At this time, we are not sure when we will start up again, so, please revisit our webpage(s) & social media feeds every now and again. Also, continue encouraging girls to play baseball within your associations & local areas.

 

Presently POSTPONED - Baseball BC is thrilled to announce the BC Girls Instructional League will be back again in 2021...!  Traditionally, with three regions (Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island & Okanagan), leagues played in Surrey & Vancouver Westside, Victoria & Duncan, Kamloops & Kelowna.  Although we are hopeful to restart summer 2022 where we left off pre-Covid, and even look to expand, this summer, due to restrictions & the unknown, we will be offering 8 sessions in Surrey this May & June. 

BC Girls Baseball welcomes all girls to work with NCCP trained coaches to develop baseball skills that match the player’s abilities; this is true whether you’re new or experienced to the game.  Like-minded girls will make personal improvements alongside the finest female mentors; Team Canada & Team BC players & coaches will build confidence & self-esteem, promote inclusivity & affiliation, and provide a fun & safe environment for all participants. 

BC Girls Baseball Instructional leagues are designed to not interfere with local baseball associations; in fact, players are encouraged to still play for their local team.  BC Girls Baseball is simply just another option offered once a week for females .  Additionally, Baseball BC’s programming does not discriminate and encourages everyone to participate, so, whether you currently play baseball or not, whether you belong to this association or that, come on out to play all-female baseball. It’s exciting!  It’s safe!  It’s a whole field of FUN; and after all, diamonds are a girl’s best friend…!  

With a focus on skill development and personal improvement, players will work in small groups with trained coaches on a variety of baseball skills for the first half of the session, and the second half will include baseball games catered to fit the skills & needs of all players.

Testimonials:

“Just wanted to say thanks again to you and all the coaches for making it so much fun for the girls.  Sarah had a great time and is looking forward to anything else that may come up.”

 

“Thanks so much.  It was amazing to be a part of this inaugural season.”

 

Coach Niki Boyd – Team Canada Player says “It was an awesome experience for the players and us coaches too.  Some of the girls were extremely shy in the beginning, but by the end of the day they became some of the leaders.  It was really cool to see them progress on the field as baseball players and off the field as young individuals.  The girls built friendships, learned a few baseball fundamentals and had a lot of fun along the way.”

 

“Last year I had the opportunity to coach and share my passion for baseball with girls from across the Lower Mainland. I enjoyed coaching and teaching these amazing little girls and watching them grow and improve throughout the course of the camp. Not only did they improve skill-wise, they had the opportunity to meet other girls who shared the same passion for baseball as they do. It was great to see so many eager and excited girls who enjoyed and loved the game as much as I do. I learned a lot from these girls and it was a great experience. I look forward to coaching them again this year.”

-Emma March

 

“I was honoured to help coach such a cheerful and happy group of girls last season with the instructional league. The girls always had smiles on their faces and were having fun, even though they were working super hard and learning lots! An opportunity like this is something that I wish was around when I was younger, as I would have loved to have engaged with fellow female baseball players, and been introduced to some amazing role models along the way! I am very excited to be returning as a coach next season and am looking forward to meeting and developing the future of girls baseball!”

-Liz Gilder

 

“I had an amazing experience this past summer as a coach with the B.C. Girls Instructional League. It was great to see girls with all different experience levels coming together to improve their skills and have fun. It was a summer filled with sweat, tears, laughs, bruises, water fights, and new friendships. I would have loved an opportunity to join a league like this when I was younger. It shows the girls that they have the option to play baseball, softball, or both! I can’t wait to build off this inaugural season and see what 2019 has in store for us.”
