Evaluations and team selection would occur in March with the season schedule commencing in April and ending with the Provincials in August. Time commitment would involve being on the field most weekends as that is when the majority of games are held (up to 4 games a weekend) along with holding two practices per week. As this is a Province wide league travel to out of town games, including some overnight trips, is expected.

PeeWee Spring Rep (formerley PeeWee Interlock)
PeeWee Spring Rep baseball is designed to be a competitive form of development driven baseball. Kamloops Spring Rep teams participate in the Okanagan AA 13u Interlock League. Evaluations and team selection would occur in March with the season schedule commencing in April and running until the end of June. Time commitment would involve being on the field most weekends (2 to 4 games) along with practices twice a week. Travel would consist mainly of day trips within the Okanagan.

Spring Rep operates within the rules of fair play as defined by BC (Minor) Baseball Association and implemented by the Okanagan Interlock league. In general, the rules are designed to focus on development, as opposed to "winning at all costs". In particular, all players in attendance must bat, and complete 3 full defensive innings.

As Head Coach you would oversee the development and growth of approximately 22 players. In the summer, the Head Coach would then transition to overseeing either the PeeWee AA or AAA program.

Th
e PeeWee Spring Rep Head Coach will be responsible for a development plan for all players that will include:

Planning weekly and in collaboration with the other Spring Rep Coaches, full squad (all players) development practices, focusing on:

  • Exposing the players to more advanced baseball plays and positioning used at the PeeWee level (base running, bunt defence, hit and run, defensive positioning, etc.);
  • Targeted training for specific positions (middle infield, catchers, pitchers, outfield, 1st base, etc.); and
  • Individual development, as needed.
  • Indirectly evaluating players for Summerball placement
  • Coaching support for the other Spring coaches
