Burlington Bees Select Program
What are the Benefits of the Select Program?
The girls’ select program offers players the opportunity to:
– Develop deeper game knowledge and position specific skills
– Represent Burlington in various cities across the province (mostly in the GTA area)
Play Softball at a Competitive Level
Teams represent Burlington in exhibition games, and in exciting (local) one-day tournaments. Only those players who play BASA house league are permitted to try out for a Burlington select team. Select travel and commitment isn’t terribly demanding as players are asked to attend one extra practice per week, and travel to three or four tournaments throughout the season. Sometimes, teams stay overnight if the tournament is a fair distance away. Select coaches are screened and selected carefully, so as to ensure the best qualified candidate becomes the coach. There is a select player fee. Finally, select operates outside of the house league schedule, so your player will not miss regular house league games or events.
Looking for Players
We are looking for players to play in mite, squirt, novice, bantam and midget teams. Only registered BASA house league players can participate in select. Typically, each select team (one per division) has a 12 player roster, and perhaps one or two call ups. There is a fee of approximately $250 to play on a select team; that fee helps to cover the cost of the team uniform, tournaments and equipment. (Players keep the uniform.) Players must also commit to fundraising.
