Ages 11 & Under


This is the first age group where players pitch, scores are recorded, games have umpires, and playoffs happen at the end of the season.  Both the A-League and AA-League use a continuous batting order, where all players on the team bat in order whether or not they are playing in the field.  There is unlimited substitution at all fielding positions.  Game length is 6 innings.


The baseball season begins in very late April, weather permitting.  Teams play 2 games per week, on Tuesday, Thursday, or Sunday evenings, and Saturday or Sunday afternoons in early May.  Evening games begin at 6:30 p.m., and typically finish before 8:30 p.m.  Afternoon games begin at 2:00 p.m.  Coaches usually require their players to arrive earlier for pre-game warm-ups.  Games do get rained out, and coaches need to schedule make-up games.  So, some weeks you may play three games or on unusual nights.

The A-League plays entirely within Winnipeg South.  Expect at least 1 additional practice per week for A-League teams.

The AA-League plays city-wide.  Expect at least 2-3 additional practices per week for AA-League teams.


  • Teams in the A-League will all participate in the Winnipeg South playoffs in late June.  Teams that qualify for the City Championship tournament may be playing the Canada Day long weekend, and into the first week of July.

All teams in the AA-League will play through the second weekend in July. The City Championship Final is the Tuesday of the third week in July.  Teams that qualify for the Provincial Championship tournament will be playing through the third weekend in July


Charleswood, Tuxedo, and Corydon Baseball combine to form one AA-League team (occasionally 2 teams) at each age level.  An additional fee is charged to try out for the AA team.

The convenors from the 3 clubs form A-League teams based on the Play With requests on the registration form, and with the goal of forming teams of about equal ability level.

We try to keep Charleswood players on Charleswood-based teams as much as possible.  However, most years, some Charleswood teams also have players from Tuxedo and/or Corydon Baseball, and some Charleswood players are assigned to teams based in one of those other clubs.

CMBA has a policy for A-League teams that players who are asked to play in Corydon or Tuxedo teams one year are always assigned to a team based in Charleswood the following year, unless they request differently.

 Equipment You Need to Provide

  • baseball glove
  • batting helmet with working chin strap
  • athletic supporter
  • GREY baseball pants (gray sweatpants are fine for A-league)
  • water bottle labelled with the player’s name

Although not required, batting gloves and baseball shoes (rubber or plastic cleats only) are recommended for the AA-League.

CMBA provides team bats, and players can also bring their own bat.  Bats must be a barrel diameter 2 ¾” or less and a length of 32″ or less.

CMBA Codes of Conduct for Players, Coaches and Parents describe the kinds of behavior we expect from our athletes and their parents.  In simplest terms this is responsible, respectful and sportsmanlike conduct with regard to teammates, coaches, opposing players, umpires, and fans. Controlling one’s own behavior and representing CMBA with class and decorum are clear expectations. Your coaches will all have signed these pledges, and will ask players and parents to also sign their Codes of Conduct as teams are formed.

* CMBA Registration Fees include the per-player fees charged by WSMBA, Baseball Manitoba, Baseball Canada, and the City of Winnipeg. With the remainder, CMBA pays for team equipment, jerseys, caps, socks, field maintenance and umpires and the cost of the indoor pre-season assessment.
