Memo:  12U Girls Provincial Baseball Team

Ladies and Parents:

Girls and women have played baseball almost since the sport’s invention.  Today, approximately 1500 girls play youth baseball in Manitoba. Uniting this popular segment of baseball momentum in MBA to younger levels will require years of targeting and communication.  And it will require direct involvement of coaches and parents to make it happen.

Baseball Manitoba, the Girls Baseball Committee, and a group of interested groups of parents / coaches are in the process of putting together an inaugural Girl's 11U (Mosquito) program.  Players can be twelve years old in the calendar year.  The eligible ages for this season is 2007 (10), 2006 (11), and 2005 (12).

Our mandate is to provide a place for young ladies to play baseball in an “all-girls" environments.  The goal is to develop and improve a baseball skill-set, and give these fledgling players an opportunity to advance on a wider Manitoba “stage.” Our aim is to grow girls’ participation by showing and providing them with a means to get involved.

Tentative goals for 2017 would include:

  1. Practices
  2. Exhibition games
  3. Couple of tournaments

If we can accomplish these goals, Manitoba Baseball will allow these young ladies a berth in a Rural “A” Provincial Tournament next season.

Please note that we are only augmenting other programs in place – not taking away! We would be working around other established teams, but at the same time provide more opportunities and introduce a new game to our female youth of the Province.  

Working together we are putting in place a positive “Plan of Action.” We are asking coaches to pass this information along to their girls (with strong encouragement), as well as to volunteers, and parents who might be interested in taking part in this program. Volunteers are welcome!

A registration form can be accessed on the "handouts" button.

21U Women’s Championship 2017 – 2018 Tournament to be Held in Stonewall, Manitoba.

            Manitoba’s bid for the 2017 – 2018 Women’s Championship Tournament has been successful!   History is being made. The Women’s Invitational Championship Baseball Tournament will be hosted in Manitoba for the first time.

           The August 24th to 27th tournament will be held at the Fines Field in Stonewall under the organizations of a special committee in partnership with Baseball Canada and Manitoba Baseball, along with the Town of Stonewall.

            These dedicated organizations and volunteers are instrumental in empowering women to play the sport of baseball.

            This tournament represents so much more than just playing baseball. It is creating opportunities for young women, creating an initiative, and encouraging women to set their goals high and be willing to work hard to achieve their dreams.  It is also a stepping stone for our players to gain exposure on the national stage and the Canadian Women’s Baseball teams.

            This tournament will be an exciting opportunity for girls and women who play, coach, and umpire baseball. Participants will experience the joy of playing the game they love with other girls, and they will take away memories that will last a lifetime.

            Committee members committed to providing a great baseball experience in Manitoba include Roger Langlais, Gail Langlais, Darrell Humeniuk, Patti Hacault, Jeremy Culleton, Marc Bissonnette, Dee Dee Culleton, Bree Langlais, and Jason Miller.

            They would welcome any volunteers or interested individuals who would like to garner a rewarding experience in women’s baseball.

            “The Town of Stonewall, and the baseball community in the area are extremely excited to be hosting the 2017 and 2018 Women’s 21U National Championships at Fines Fields in Stonewall.  We have a premier baseball facility in Stonewall that has not been seen on the National stage in a very long time.  The participants will be the best of the best baseball players and coaches our country has to offer. There are also 3 or 4 players from the Interlake, who could potentially be playing with Team Manitoba.  

            This event will provide us with a fantastic opportunity to show off our baseball facility and our part of the province to the rest of the country.   Our host committee anticipates that this will be the must see sporting event of the summer,” stressed Darrell Humeniuk, committee member and Field of Play organizer.

            We are happy and look forward to hosting the 21U Women’s Canadian National Championship Tournament in Stonewall, Manitoba. 

            This movement will open more avenues for female youth baseball players in our province,” concluded Roger Langlais, Co-Chairperson, 21U Women’s Invitational Championship Committee.
