2017 Mosquito Select Team Tryouts
The Royal York Cardinals Girls Mosquito Select team, which plays in the 9-team West Toronto Mosquito Select League, will be holding try-outs for the 2017 season team on Sunday February 26, 2017 from 6 pm -7:30 pm, and Sunday, March 5, 2017 from 6 pm – 7:30 pm. Girls with the birth year 2005, 2006 or 2007 are encouraged to attend the try-outs for the 2017 team. Tryouts will be held indoors at the Etobicoke Olympium Complex in West Toronto. Those players who are offered a position with the team will take part in indoor training at the Etobicoke Olympium Complex on Sundays through March and April, 2017 followed by the Select League regular season which runs May – August 2017.
The Royal York Cardinals Girls Mosquito Select team is the only all-female Mosquito Select team in Ontario, and as such the program is designed to optimize the development of elite level female players. All too frequently, girls with elite-level baseball potential have only one option – playing on a boys’ team, usually as the only girl on the team. Several of our current and past players have come from this type of situation, and upon joining our program have had their interest in the sport re-energized by playing with a group of girls who share their interest and passion for playing baseball.
The Cardinals Mosquito Select Program provides top level teaching and instruction from NCCP / OBL certified and experienced coaches (both female and male), with practice sessions structured to accelerate individual skill development. The girls play against a high level of competition as a member of the West Toronto Mosquito Select League, as well as tournament play. Dates and locations of travel tournaments will be finalized once the final roster is set, so that team parents can be involved in budgeting and scheduling discussions.
Tryout Dates: February 26 2017 (6 pm – 7:30 pm) and March 5, 2017 (6 pm – 7:30 pm).
The final roster will be set and communicated privately to parents on the evening of March 5, 2017 following the second tryout. All players should attend both tryouts. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the tryouts.
Location: Etobicoke Olympium, 590 Rathburn Rd. Toronto, ON. (near Hwy 427, south of Eglinton)
