Academy coaches have first aid training. Children in need of a medical supervision will be taken to a local hospital or 911 will be called.
What field dimensions will my daughter play on?
Players will be divided by skill, experience, and age. Players prepared to play at full distances (90 ft basepaths and 60 ft pitching) will do so and may compete against women. Another field option is 80 ft basepaths and 55 feet pitching – which will be for games against girls 16 and under. Our smallest field will be either Little League distances (60 & 48) or Baseball Ontario distances (70 & 50) for play against girls 13 and under.
