Baseball Regina is a volunteer, non-profit organization which organizes baseball for Regina youth under the auspices of Baseball Canada and Baseball Sask. Baseball Regina’s goal is to provide each player with an opportunity to participate, learn and enjoy playing the game of baseball which will promote health, sportsmanship, team play and good citizenship.
Baseball Regina accomplishes this goal with first conducting player evaluations. Then player drafts and team tryouts take place to ensure each player is playing in the level that is best suited for their abilities to create a positive, safe and fun experience. AAA teams will declare their final rosters first and then AA teams will declare their final rosters second. A teams declare their rosters third. There are no player evaluations for Junior and Senior Rally Cap Divisions and for the other Divisions, it is not a requirement but optional for players opting to play A to participate in player evaluations. For Bantam, Pee Wee, and Mosquito Divisions, players are drafted by a City-wide draft to provide the opportunity for players to play with or against other players of the same skill set and ability. Baseball Regina organizes and equips the teams and coaches and provides facilities to play the game as well as scheduling games, tournaments and providing guidelines for player/team participation.

The federal government recognizes Baseball Canada as the official amateur baseball organization for Canada. Baseball Canada has an official affiliate organization in each province. In Saskatchewan that organization is Baseball Sask (formerly Saskatchewan Baseball Association). Baseball Sask divides the province into eight zones. Zone 2 is the City of Regina. Baseball Regina is the official organization representing youth baseball for Zone 2 (Regina).
All Baseball Regina players are registered with Baseball Sask. Only registered players can compete in Baseball Sask sponsored tournaments and if successful the Western and National tournaments sponsored by Baseball Canada. Players that wish to try out for any Baseball Sask Selects team must be a registered player with Baseball Sask.
Regina Baseball’s approach to baseball is the same as the one endorsed by Baseball Canada and its affiliate, Baseball Sask. Baseball Regina’s goal is to provide each player with an opportunity to participate, learn and enjoy playing the game of baseball. We believe a competitive approach accomplishes this as opposed to a purely recreational approach. We also believe that players participate more, learn better and enjoy themselves more when they are placed on teams with other players of a similar age and skill level. Coaches find it more productive and enjoyable to instruct kids when their team is composed of players with comparable skills, abilities and commitment. Teams only compete with similar teams (age and skill level) in league play.
The age levels (division) are determined by Baseball Canada. The age of the player at January 1 of the season determines the division they will play in.
Junior Rally Cap (4**5 & 6) ** with Division Director approval & Parent/Guardian coaching
Senior Rally Cap (7, 8 & 9*) * depending on player skill
11U Mosquito (9* & 10)
13U Pee Wee (11 & 12)
15U Bantam (13 & 14)
18U Midget (15, 16 & 17)
Except for Rally Cap all players are evaluated to determine their skill level. The highest skilled players are placed on AAA teams, followed by AA and A. Players who are skilled enough to play at higher levels but do not have the commitment or desire to play at that level are allowed to participate at a lower level.
Typically A level teams play in League games and travel is limited to teams 50 to 80 kms of Regina. AA teams engage in League games with travel within 120 kms of Regina, with the weekends typically being the furthest away teams. AAA teams will play regular league games against other Province wide Cities with 2.5 to 4 hour travel scheduled on weekends. The season for all players starts early May. For A teams the season finishes at or near the end of June. AAA teams in the Pee Wee and Bantam division may play regular league games till the middle of July with Provincials.
Everybody is placed on a team at an appropriate level so that they have the best opportunity for succeeding and enjoying baseball. Depending on division level a 16- 22 game league schedule is set in addition to tournament and playoff games
