Whalley is once again planning to participate in the Lower mainland Little League fall ball program.
There is a 9/10 age group and 11/12 age group. ( 2017 league age 9-12) Fee $45.00
Fall ball is a developmental opportunity with less competitive focus.
The season will start Sept 10th and will run until the weather holds or it starts to get dark too early for clinics (usually mid-October). It is structured so players can play another sport in the fall and still participate.
There is usually one clinic on a weeknight and one game on the weekend (Usually Sunday because other sports are usually Saturday). If Coaches are inclined to do so they can add clinics and games as participation warrants.
If you are wanting to get started as a coach- Fall ball is a good time to step up and get involved.
The PBL Chiefs are offering a Fall Ball program for 13-17
Whalley, Fall Ball is open to all players aged 13-17. The dates are Sept.6 through mid October weather permitting. A typical week will be workouts Tuesday through Thursdays at 6pm and games on the weekends.The Jr Chiefs will enter into a Tournament at White Rock in mid September and the Bantam Chiefs are in the Best of the West U15 Tournament in Kamloops Sept 23-5.
All instruction is handled by the Chiefs coaching staff.Costs will be $300.00 and will include a hat and Fall Ball uniform top.This will cover City user costs and umpire costs.
