Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


In what category should I register my child?

Registration is based on birth year. For example, 9U (Sr. Rookie) registration is limited to children whose 9th birthday falls on or after January 1st of the current year. If you child wishes to try-out for a rep team (11U/Mosquito and older), register for the Rep try-out in the appropriate age category.


What is the difference between Rep and House League?

House League plays during the months of May and June. Playoffs are typically completed prior to the end of the school year. Rep is more competitive, with the season running from May to the first weekend in August.


What is the process for registering my child?

Every player is required to complete online registration through the SJP site.
Players wanting to try out for a spot on a Rep division team needs to register and pay only the Rep Try-out fee. Following try-outs, you will be directed to register and pay the fee corresponding to the team (AAA/AA/House League) for which the player was selected. Spots on House League teams will be held for players not selected to a Rep team.
Online payment by credit card completes the registration.
Payment by cheque requires the following: registration through the SJP site, and select cheque as the payment option; submission of payment at an in-person registration date (TBD); or by mail to: South Jasper Place Minor Baseball Association, Suite #424, 9768-170 Street NW, Edmonton, Alberta, T5T 5L4
payments must be received by April 15.
IMPORTANT: Registration is not complete until payment is received. No spots will be held nor will the player be assigned to a team without payment.
Applications for third-party funding (e.g. KidsSport) requires you to contact the registrar: registrar@sjpbaseball.ca.


My Son is 5 , born 2013, and is interested inlaying Baseball. how many nights per week is u5 and what night? How long does the season run?

The age category in which your child plays is based on how old they will turn on or after January 1. Your child, born in 2013, will turn 6 in 2019, so should play in the 7U (formerly called Jr. Rookie) category.

General Information
There is no evaluation process prior to being placed on a team.
7U is for children who have limited or no experience playing baseball. The program emphasizes skill development. It helps teach players basic baseball skills and rules of play in a fun and safe environment. Each week, the two teams scheduled use the first 30 minutes for practice in smaller groups with coaches and parent helpers. The remaining time is used for a game, with coaches pitching. 7U players participate in the Rookie Days, held on a weekend in June that includes a tournament and skills evaluation, with the player receiving a Baseball Canada DQ® Rally Cap corresponding with their level of achievement.
Scheduled play is Tuesdays and Thursdays, at a diamond in Edmonton's west end. The season runs through May and June.
Equipment: helmet, glove, protective cup. Baseball pants and cleats are not necessary.


What nights does u5 play? Is u5 the same as rally cap?

Rally Cap is divided into 2 age categories--5U & 7U.
General Information
There is no evaluation process prior to being placed on a team.
5U is designed for very young children with no experience in baseball. It helps teach players very basic baseball play in a fun and safe environment. Each week, two teams are scheduled on a diamond. The teams use the first 30 minutes for practice in smaller groups with coaches and parent helpers, with the remaining time used for a game. The hitting team uses a foam bat to hit a foam ball off a tee. Coaches are encouraged to modify the game to suit the kids.
Scheduled play is Wednedays, at a diamond in Edmonton's west end. The season runs through May and June.
Equipment: helmet, glove (optional). Baseball pants and cleats are not necessary.


My son turns 10 in August. He's never played baseball but has expressed interest. Is there a place for beginners with your organization? Also, what is the time commitment. He's played a few years of community league soccer, so we're used to that kind of schedule - two evenings a week with an occasional weekend practice or tournament.

Your son would be in the 11U division. House League is players who wish to play in a less competitive environment (as compared to Rep). The game is modified to allow the players to develop their skills and learn the game. There is a draft at the beginning of the season, in an attempt to make the teams as equal as possible. Games are scheduled 2 times per week, with practices held at the discretion of the coach. More information about the league/games is on our website under HOUSE LEAGUE 'A' -> GENERAL INFORMATION.

SJP is also running a Spring Tune-up Camp for players to learn/hone some basic skills and get ready for the season! Information is available on the website, under CAMPS.


In U7 will the kids be using an actual baseball or a softball? Need to know for glove size?

The players in that age category use a cushioned baseball that the same size as a regulation baseball.
