Registrants will be evaluated on skill level, sportsmanship and coachability.

If there are concerns regarding an evaluation, the evaluation sheet may be requested to be viewed. Evaluations can only be discussed with the youth's parent or current legal guardian.

The AA season runs from Mid April to July or August depending on a teams placement. As the AA program is competitive in nature and team numbers are limited, full commitment by each player is necessary. Please feel free to approach a coach or evaluator during tryouts to discuss anything that may impact your level of commitment during the season.
If a player is not chosen for placement on a AA team after completing evaluations, those players will be assigned to a House League team. If there is enough interest there is the potential for a 'A' Provincial team later on in the season. 'A' Provincial teams travel and compete for typically three weekends in July.
Team fees associated with the AA Rep program (for players who are selected for a team):
On average a $300.00 team Rep fee is required (this is on top of registration fees), this is to cover various team expenses such as Umpire fees, team equipment, extra diamond maintenance, etc.
Mandatory Rep Uniforms are required. GPMBA supplies each player with 1 Jersey ($50.00 refundable deposit required and collected by team managers), players must purchase mandatory white baseball pants, red belt. Approximate cost between $75.00 - $100.00
