The District Pin

Calling All Colts Players! Are you feeling creative?

For those of you that don’t know this, Kingston belongs to District 7 of Little League Ontario. They are asking all their members to help with designing their new “District Pin”!

Pin trading is a tradition in Little League Baseball that has spanned the past 5 decades and has become a past time at lots of little league venues.  If you would like to try your hand at creating the new design, please turn in your submissions to your coach by May 18.

House League Evaluations in Early May

It’s almost here!!!  We can’t wait for what should be the best house league in KBA in a long time!  Get the gloves ready kids, because player evaluations for house league teams will take place on …

  • Minors (age 9-10) – May 8
  • Majors (age 11-12) – May 9
  • Juniors (age 13-15) – May 10

All evaluations will take place from 6:30-8:30 at Shannon’s Corners.  And don’t worry about the word “evaluations”.  It’ll be fun – we just do this to make sure the teams are all balanced.

Don’t worry rookies and grassroots players –  your evaluations will begin mid to end of May.

*** Registration is open until April 30 and that after there will be “sort out days” where players will be placed on a team and contact by their coaches.

Indoor Fun at Molly Brant!!!

Relay races and wiffle ball games entertained the kids and the coaches at Molly Brant Elementary School as kids born from 2005-2008 had a blast tonight working on their skills!

The KBA is thrilled at our registration numbers and the enthusiasm of the kids and parents coming out.  We can’t wait for the fields to dry, but in the meantime, we’re sure making the most of the indoor facilities provided to us by our partners at the Limestone District School Board.  Love to see the kids running into the gym, and not wanting to leave.

Special props to Eli who was the hero of the night!!!
