FAQ

What Are Player Evaluations?

MNBA promotes fair and competitive play, and we attempt to create all House League teams with an even balance of talent.   To do this we have to evaluate all players.   For most players who played in 2017, we have an evaluation from your coach already.   For all new players, and for returning players that we don’t have an evaluation for, you’ll be invited to an evaluation camp in early May.    You’ll receive an email from myself in April with the available date and times.   When you get to the evaluation, your son/daughter will be observed performing some common baseball drills, by coaches and will likely will be involved in playing a fun game with other kids in the same division that are also being evaluated.

How Many Times per Week are Games and Practices scheduled?

For all divisions you should plan on 2 games each week, and a practice on the weekend, which means 3 times per week through the season.  Jr T-Ball, Rookie, Major Mosquito and Bantam divisions will play their games on Monday & Wednesday’s  All other division will play on Tuesday & Thursday.   Each team is able to pick a 2 hour practice slot at a league diamond on Friday Evenings, Saturday or Sunday’s.  Your coach will do this for you, and that selected time will become your weekly practice time through the season.

What Parks will our Games be Scheduled At?

The quick answer is “We Don’t Know Yet!’   As a sports affiliate of the city, MNBA requests park times and the city doesn’t confirm this back to our association until early April.  It’s not until that point that we can confirm what parks will be scheduled for each division.  In general, we use 3-5 parks for each division and they are located across North Mississauga.  Many of the parks do stay the same from year to year, and if you’d like a general idea, you can visit our league website (http://www.leaguelineup.com/schedules.asp?url=mnba)  click on 2017 schedules and you can see the parks that your child’s division played at last season.  There’s a reasonable chance that most of these parks will remain the same in 2018, but again, we can’t confirm this until closer to the season.

What time do the games start for Boys & Girls House League Baseball?

Regular season games start at 6:15 PM  Note: Peewee and older divisions will have some of their games start at 8:30 PM. Make up game start times are assigned based on park availability.

Are There Games Scheduled on Summer Holidays and Weekends?

During the regular season, the league does NOT schedule any games on Victoria Day Monday or Canada Day Monday.   Our playoffs run through August, and we do schedule games on the August long weekend.   At minimum you should expect to have a practice during the August long weekend and a game on the holiday Monday.     The league generally doesn’t schedule games on weekends unless we have rain outs or other needs to re-schedule a game.   We usually keep an open week at the end of the regular season schedule so that we can re-schedule rained out games on your normal night at the end of the season, however each year there usually arises the need to schedule the occasional game during one of your practice slots on the weekend.   Our membership has grown quite a bit over the last few years and registration is up again in 2018.  Based on this, we are looking at scheduling an occasional game on a Friday evening or Saturday morning to accommodate all the teams.  

What Equipment Do I need To Get for My Son/Daughter?  What Does the League Supply?

 At your first practice, your coach will supply a full uniform for your child which includes team jersey, baseball pants, baseball socks, belt and hat.  Also, the team is supplied with practice balls, bats and catcher’s equipment and a first aid kit.    You need to ensure your child has a baseball glove,  jock or Jill, CSA approved batting helmet and running shoes or baseball cleats.  It’s not required, but some parents also buy their kids batting gloves.

Should I Get My Child Their Own Baseball Bat?

First, you should know two rules of our league.  First rule is, the league supplies all teams with at least two bats, and in general, they are ‘good’ bats.  We do spend money each year to replace bats that are worn or aged, and we buy bats that are the right size and quality for your league and age group.   Second, it is a league rule that if you bring your own bat to a game or practice, your bat becomes a ‘team’ shared bat while you’re there.  It means anyone on the team is allowed to use it while at that game or practice.   Saying all this, many parents still want to get their child their own bat.  Our recommendations for you if you are going to buy your own bat are the following:   Find a bat that is comfortable for your child.  It shouldn’t be too long or short, shouldn’t be too heavy for them or even too light.  Many kids will swing a light bat and feel good about how fast they can swing it.  You should encourage your kids to go 1-2 oz heavier than what they like….a heavier bat that they can still swing fast will always hit a ball farther than a lighter bat!   Don’t spend too much on a bat.  Some bats are priced at $400 or more!!!   Make sure to get aluminum and not wood, and most bats in the $50-$100 price range are perfectly fine for your child.   Home Run Sports located on Dundas near Hwy 427 is a sponsor of the league and can help you if you’re looking for a bat or other equipment.

Other Important Notes – We Need Help with Parent Volunteers to Help Coach

Our House League is a big organization, and we need about 150 Volunteer parents to help coach and assist with their kids teams….we can’t run the league without you!   We provide training and support, and I can share with you personally that coaching your kids ball team is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have as a parent.  I started coaching my own son’s team when he was in Rookie Ball, and am still doing it today as he’s about to enter the Midget division.   Previous baseball or softball experience is great, but not required.  If you can help lead, organize and coordinate, then you’ve got what we need.    Every team needs at least 2 coaches, so there’s always someone to work with.    If you’re able to get involved and help out, please respond to this note and I can answer any questions you might have.  

In the 2017 season, we had to approach 2 teams in our league and let them know we didn’t have a coach for their team to start the season.   The parent groups for each of those teams stepped up, and one of those teams went on to win the championship of their division…it was a fantastic story and made for great memories!
