Face masks

For all male and female U16 and below age groups, all on deck batters, batters and baserunners helmets must have an attached face mask.

Protective infield face masks will be required for pitchers in all male and female U14 age groups and below.

Equipment

  • Helmet - each athlete must have their own helmet with an attached face mask.
  • Cleats - running shoes are not ideal but may be worn at the U12 age group. There is a greater risk of injury to those that do NOT wear cleats. Players have much better traction with cleats and there is less likelihood the athlete will slip around in the dirt and shale.
  • Bats are provided by the zone for U12, U14 & U16 age groups but many athletes buy their own. Please have an expert at any one of our athletic stores in the city or your coach help you purchase the right bat for your player! Bats are expensive and if you purchase the wrong weight or length of bat your coach may be asking the player to use something else. Also…. Using another player’s bat is NOT ENCOURAGED since families spend a lot of money on their equipment and it makes things very awkward for everyone if the bat is broken by a teammate.
  • Athletic cup - all boys MUST wear an athletic cup or they will not be permitted to play. It is also recommended for girls who are in the catcher’s position.
  • Batting gloves - not mandatory but they are recommended.
  • Catcher’s equipment - provided by the zone for the U12, U14 & U16 age groups.
  • Water - yes WATER!!!! It is expected that your athlete bring water to every game or practice as this is also an important part of your equipment.
  • Sunscreen and bug repellent are recommended.
  • Snack - yes, if needed, as long as it does not interfere with the game or practice. Please be sensitive to any food allergies on your team.
  • Medical equipment – it is the athlete’s responsibility to bring any and all medical equipment with them such as inhalers, an EpiPen, insulin, etc AND to be sure that the team is aware of any medical conditions or special needs of that player.

If you have ANY questions about uniforms or equipment please don’t hesitate to ask your coach or contact the Selects equipment manager.

Uniform shirts are provided for all teams at all ages.

Your team may also ask you to purchase a jacket, hoodie, team practice shirt or extra jersey…. but these are all individual to what your coach or team chooses to purchase as a group. Remember, when you are attending a Provincial or National Championship your whole team must have a matching uniform… so it is important that the athlete purchase the exact piece requested by the coach. The athlete will not be permitted to wear just “any old hat” or a different colored undershirt when it comes to these big events.
