Try-Outs and Team expectations
Submitted By Shaun Bonnallie on Sunday, March 26, 2017
Hello Players and Parents,

This years Major Mosquito Tincap team will play in the LDBA Rep loop from May till late August, including 4 tournaments along with LDBA Playoff weekend and hopefully qualify for the OBA "A" championship.

We will be on the diamond between games, practices and cage time 3 to 4 times a week from Mid April till LDW in September.

There is no question that it is a commitment to play competitive ball, attendance by the full roster is critical to team success.

Please "READ MORE" for more info


Below are weekend dates already scheduled.

June 2nd - 4th -Oshawa
June 23rd - 25th - Chatham
July 21st - 23rd - Tincaps
Aug 11th - 13th - Richmond Hill
Aug 25th - 27th - LDBA PLAYOFFS
Sept 01st - 03rd - OBA "A" Championships if qualified Niagara Falls

We have 21 kids registered for try-outs on the Major team.  Those not selected for the major team will be considered for the Mosquito Select team before being returned to either Byron or Oakridge HL teams.

The way the Select Team process works is once the minor and major team have been chosen the minor coach will work with myself along with the Select Coach to pick from those players who will be on the Select team as their will not be anytime to hold select try-outs.  The minor Tincaps team has roughly 28 players trying out.

Winter Workouts:

Tuesday March 28th 6:15pm - 7:30pm  St Georges Catholic School

Below is the plan for the Major Mosquito Tryouts since Hockey is wrapping up as of the 31st for everyone and the Knights AAA does not start till April 10th.


Sunday April 2nd (Weather Permitting) 2pm-4pm Byron Pool Diamond, Brock St. (if weather is bad it will be cancelled)

Monday April 3rd 5pm - 7pm Centrefield Sports. Hour of field and hour of cages

Wednesday April 5th If weather is good we will be at Byron Pool diamond from 5:30pm-7:30pm, if weather is not good we will be at St. Theresa Catholic School on Fairlane Ave from 6pm - 8pm.

Thursday April 6th 5:30pm - 7:30pm Centrefield Sports. Hour of field and hour of cages.

The team will be announced on Friday April 7th. With Uniform fitting to happen on Sat April 8th in the am.

There will be a $25 tryout fee per player to cover costs. Please bring money to myself at the first tryout or you will not be allowed to participate.

Please send me an email to confirm that your child is still wanting to tryout for a competitive team this year, if you are looking at just playing Select you will still need to participate in the process to have a chance to make that team. But please state that intention in your email to myself.

Also please consider vacations already planned and let me know as it is not fair to the team if your child is selected and then to find out you will be gone lots during the season.

Looking forward to the season ahead, don't forget to send me a message.


Coach Shaun
