Below is the schedule for GMBA’s select tryouts for the 2019 season.
GMBA’s Select Program is an extension of GMBA’s house league program for Rookie, Mosquito, Peewee, Bantam and Midget aged players. Select players receive additional development opportunities through practices, games against other select centres and tournament play at a higher competitive level outside of their house league commitment.
All tryouts will be at the Royal Distributing Athletic Performance Centre (Marden Facility)- 7384 Wellington Road 30, Guelph, ON N1H 6J2. Please try to arrive 15 minutes prior to each tryout to register.
All players who intend to play house league baseball with GMBA in 2019 are eligible and encouraged to attend Select Tryouts. However, you do not have to attend select tryouts to play house league baseball this summer.
For those attending tryouts, please go to the first tryout date that is noted for your child’s age group. The Head Coach of that team will notify you at the first tryout, or shortly thereafter, if your child should attend subsequent tryouts.
New This Year: There is a $20.00 (cash only) fee to attend Select Tryouts. Please bring your child’s payment to the first tryout. Tryout fees are only payable in cash at the tryout registration. This fee is to cover the cost of the tryout facility rental.
Rookie (Players born in 2010 and 2011)
Mosquito (Players born in 2008 and 2009) *NOTE- GMBA is planning on running two Mosquito Select teams should there be enough interest at tryouts

Select Teams will play approx. 15 games with their select team which is made up of exhibition games and tournaments that are scheduled by each team (coaches and parents) based on player availability as there is no prescribed league play/schedule. Typically teams will enter 2-3 tournaments spread over the months of June, July and August. Teams can apply and participate in the Select Provincial Championship (SOBA's) by a qualification process.
The best way to envision Select is as house league plus and the plus is they get an opportunity to play at a higher level of ball against similar teams from other cities.
The costs incurred by Select Teams for home games, tournaments and uniforms which are divided amongst the players/parents. A Select team typically practice weekly starting mid May to mid August depending on player availability.
