WELCOME to the website of the 2009-2016 Bantam AAA Richmond Chuckers. After founding the program back in 2004 and running fall, winter, and full single-season spring/summer programs every year, we (as in Alex Klenman and Ryan Klenman) called it a day in 2017.  Politics, at both the provincial and local level, took their toll and the time had come to shut down the program we devoted over a decade of our time to building.  We spent over 200 days a year on fields, traveling to and from tournaments, in batting cages, at training facilities and in dugouts all over the West, all for the betterment of Richmond baseball.

In 2017 the competitive landscape in BC 15U baseball changed, with the well established BCPBL deciding to field a very organized and competitive Bantam Prep division.  With BC Minor Baseball unable to settle a dispute with Baseball BC, the decision was made by BC Minor to give up their affiliation with the sports provincial governing body.  This decision essentially gave the BCPBL clubs (affiliated with Baseball BC) a clear path to the 15U Baseball Canada National Championships, while denying BC Minor ballplayers the same opportunity.  The result was the once strong and long running BC Minor 15U Bantam AAA division suffered as the BCPBL expanded aggressively into the 15U age group.  Many people voiced their opinions at the time, and in hindsight those opinions proved to be accurate.  

Established in the fall of 2004 as the Richmond Red Sox, our program was designed to prepare young ballplayers to move up to higher levels of play with the tools, skills and attitude necessary to compete and succeed at the next level and beyond. 
For over a decade we represented the city of Richmond, BC, Canada, playing in what used to be top tier 15U division (Bantam AAA) in the province.  During this time we provided a leading edge, high-performance baseball program, that was organized, dedicated, and progressive.  Over the course of our run, from 2004 through 2016, we captured 11 tournament titles, finished second in five more, while winning two Bantam AAA regular season league titles (2008 and 2013).  
Player development was at the core of our team philosophy...
