Please check our boundary map on the Where We Play page.
Winter Skills Training
The following is a summary of the winter program – additional information is on the Winter page. Winter Ball is a fun way for players to learn and maintain skills during the winter months. Winter Skills Training consists of a nine skills session at a school gymnasium between January 12th and March 30th inclusive. Training and Skills development are offered at every Division level in the GLL, that is for age groups from 4 through 19. Winter Training starts the GLL season and, for 2019, all players registered for Spring Ball get access to these training sessions at no extra charge.
GLL will also offer advanced skills training for high level players at the Ottawa Boys & Girls Club. Advanced level training fees are not included in GLL registration costs and must be booked and paid separately.
Spring “House League” Program
The following is a brief summary of the spring program – additional information is on the Spring page. The spring program begins in May and for most divisions runs until the end of June, except for 19U which runs until early August. Teams play a 10-12 game schedule and there are playoffs in every division except T-Ball and Rookies. Every player receives a team shirt, and ball cap as [art of their participation fee. See the Spring page for a lot more detail.
Summer Competitive Program
The following is a brief summary of the summer program – additional information is on the Summer page. The Summer baseball program builds on the Spring program, providing an opportunity to play in July and August. The program is open to all of our Spring players.
Divisions: ROOKIE, MINOR, MAJOR, JUNIOR, SENIOR
In these divisions Glebe plays in the Ottawa Summer Interlock league with teams from other Ottawa area Little Leagues in District 6 (Carleton Russell, Prescott Russell, South Ottawa, Orleans) and District 2 (Ottawa West, East Nepean, Kanata).
Each age division will typically form either 1-2 summer teams, however if there is enough interest we will attempt to field enough teams to meet the interest. If there are more players interested than can be accommodated in Glebe, we will refer players to other leagues that have space available. Every effort will be made to place all players who wish to play summer ball on a team. While we try to include as many players as possible, it can be necessary to release players. Usually this will be due to numbers, for example 17 registrants which is too many for one team but not enough for two.
The following is a summary of the fall program – additional information is on the Fall page. The Fall Ball program begins in mid August and usually runs until mid-October. Teams play a 10-12 game schedule and year by year the divisions offered depend on demand and the number of volunteers.
The goal of fall ball is to provide a safe, fun, developmental environment for players, coaches and umpires. All players are assigned to a team – there are no “tryouts” – only sort out evaluations which help form fair and balanced teams as much as possible. Players are asked to attend one evaluation session so that their skill level can be assessed. Our programs are tiered into two levels at in the major and junior divisions.
