Thorold 18U House-League is a developmental, recreational program for youth born between 2004 - 2006. The program runs 2-3 night per week (often on the weekend) out of McMillan Park.
18U teams will have 1-2 practices a week as well as 1-2 games a week. Typically players are on the field 2-3 times each week. 18U teams will participate in the Niagara District Baseball Association Interlock loop which means that each week they will play a team outside of Thorold (Pelham, Welland, Port Colborne, West Niagara etc.)
Typically there are 1-2 18U teams comprised of 11-14 players each. Each team will have 1 head coach and a number of helpers/assistant coaches. The season traditionally starts the week after the Victoria Day May long weekend.
Players will receive a numbered jersey and team hat. A team picture will also be provided to every player with individual pictures available for purchase.
Players are required to have their own glove, baseball pants, closed toe-shoes, CSA approved helmet with an attached face guard as well as a protective athletic cup (jock/jill).
The season will end around the third week of August and will finish with a playoff tournament as well as a skills competition/fun-day of mini-games, medal presentations and more.
Players interested in playing are encouraged to attend the free in-gym practices that will be taking place in the offseason (facility permitting)
