About Bantam

About Bantam

In Bantam, players have the opportunity to try-out to play for the Bantam Jr. Riverdogs. This elite team competes in a province-wide league from April-August.

More information about 2018 programming will be posted here once details are finalized.

Required Equipment

Glove, helmet, baseball pants, and a protective cup.

Seasons of Play

Fall Baseball (September)

Fall baseball is comprised of players who will be entering the division in the following year as well as players who will be moving into their second year. This is typically players in grades 8 and 9. Usually run 3 nights a week, the players practice and scrimmage with each other. KMBA enters the Bantam group in the annual BLE Best of the West at the end of September.

Registration opens in August each year and spots are limited.

Winterball (January-March)

Winterball is run in our first class indoor training facility: Sussex Insurance Centre on McArthur Island. Winterball is designed to offer the players instruction on many of the fundamentals that can get lost in the busy Spring Season. Winterball is an important program for players who wish to try out for the single-season team: Bantam Jr. Riverdogs.

Registration opens in November each year and spots are limited.

Single Season (April-August)

KMBA is pleased to offer an elite level of baseball in the Bantam division. The Bantam Jr. Riverdogs are a select all-star team that play in a province-wide league for the entire season.

Spring Season (April-June)

Players can expect about 2-3 practices/games per week. All players will be evaluated in early April and then drafted into their teams.

All spring season teams compete in a league comprised of other Interior/Okanagan teams.

Registration opens in November each year.

Summer "Riverdogs" Season (July)

In May, players are given the opportunity to try out for one of KMBA's Summer Select teams. Each summer KMBA is dedicated to fielding as many summer teams as possible. These all-star teams represent KMBA as Riverdogs play in tournaments against other associations from around the province culminating with the provincial championship.

In Bantam we try and field a team at the Single-A level.
