Philosophy

All players deserve the right to equivalent playing time during the regular season as developmental games.  Players should develop at a small number of playing positions. Batting order is written in the way most likely to generate the most runs based on statistics.  Rep baseball, like high school baseball, has substitutions which allow for 9 players in the field and 10 in the batting order.   Being deep in pitching is required, but not all players are pitchers at this level.  In highly competitive game circumstances the team will play to win to move on in tournaments, playoffs and provincials.

Coaches

At this level of baseball coaches are expected to have a substantial level of playing experience.  This we have been able to bring to you with Connor Fitzgerald and Tyler Roth.  

Fitz is currently attending Davis and Elkins NCAA Div II college in West Virginia graduating with a degree in Sports Management.  He is a local to Carleton Place and and is thrilled to take on the coaching role for this team.  Fitz brings a positive mindset for developing youth players!

Tyler is a graduate of Hilbert College in New York state with a degree in Sports management.  Tyler grew up in Stittsville who played for the Ottawa Nepean Canadians and has strong ties to Carleton Place.  He is tasked with player development for the entire Bears organization and will be responsible for player development throughout the season.

Playing Season

The Bears are a member association of NCOBA and will play a full  game schedule in the 15U division with the other teams from the National Capital region in the EOBA.  

Tournaments

Local tournaments: 3: Seaway, Kanata, Tokessy

Away tournaments: 2: Montreal? Mississauga? Lake Placid? Determined by parent group.

Includes the end of season playoffs in early to mid August.

The province wide OBA Rep Provincials are held the labour day long weekend.  If we win the right to represent NCOBA in the Provincials, all players are expected to attend this prestigious end of season tournament.  South Bend will pay for the tournament entry for all teams that win the right to attend.

Uniforms

Uniforms are player owned and purchased centrally by the team.  This allows players to have their own number and name on the back and keep that year over year.  A sharp look is provided by using the professional baseball affiliate South Bend Cubs logo and look.  Players must have matching helmets, the Bears helmet colour is matte Red.  New Era caps purchased officially purchased from MiLB will be provided.
