Bantam (15U, born 2008/2009) will have 1 or 2 practices + 2 games per week with games being on Monday/Wednesday/Sunday. All teams will have practice time on Saturdays and another throughout the week.
Bantam "A" Spring teams are created after evaluations and a draft and will likely consist of a number of RMMBA teams who interlock (play other associations). There will be evaluations in May to create our Summer "A" team.
Our Bantam "AA" team will also be created after evaluations, will interlock throughout the Spring and Summer, and will also include a travel tournament. This is a competitive team and your player's commitment is very important at this level. *There will be an additional team fee charged on top of the regular Spring Registration fee for this program. Please reach out to [email protected] if you have questions about the cost and commitment level for this program.
Our Bantam "AAA" team as well will be created after evaluations and interlocks throughout the GVRD and Fraser Valley, and also includes some games and tournaments on Vancouver Island and into the Interior/Okanagan. The "AAA" runs through to the end of July and could possibly continue into August with Westerns and Nationals. This is a highly competitive team and your player's commitment is very important at this level. *There will be an additional team fee charged on top of the regular Spring Registration fee for this program. Please reach out to [email protected] if you have questions about the cost for this program.
*Note that AA and AAA teams may have a third practice per week.
