Please check our boundary map on the Where We Play page.

*NEW* Winter Baseball Academy – Skills Training

The following is a summary of the winter baseball skills training program – additional information is on the Winter page. All players who register for Spring Ball get access to the new GLL Winter Baseball Academy training sessions at no extra charge. Our Glebe Baseball Academy is a fun way for players to learn and maintain baseball skills during the winter months. Winter baseball skills training consists of nine skills sessions on saturdays at a school gymnasium between January 12th and March 30th inclusive. Training and skills development are offered at every Division level in the GLL, for age groups from 4 through 19.

GLL will also offer advanced baseball skills training for high level players at the Ottawa Boys & Girls Club.  Advanced level training fees are not included in GLL Spring Ball registration costs and must be booked and paid separately.

Spring “House League” Baseball Program

The following is a brief summary of the spring baseball program – additional information is on the Spring page. The spring baseball program begins in May and for most divisions runs until the end of June, except for 19U which runs until early August. Baseball teams play a 10-12 game schedule and there are playoffs in every division except T-Ball and Rookies. Every baseball player receives a team shirt, and ball cap as part of their baseball participation fee. See the Spring page for a lot more detail.

Summer Competitive Baseball Program

The following is a brief summary of the summer baseball program – additional information is on the Summer page. The Summer baseball program builds on the Spring program, providing an opportunity to play baseball in July and August. The baseball program is open to all of our Spring players.

Divisions: ROOKIE, MINOR, MAJOR, JUNIOR, SENIOR

In these baseball divisions Glebe plays in the Ottawa Summer Interlock baseball 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 baseball teams, however if there is enough interest we will attempt to field enough baseball teams to meet the interest. If there are more baseball players interested than can be accommodated in Glebe, we will refer players to otherbaseball  leagues that have space available. Every effort will be made to place all players who wish to play summer ball on a baseball 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 baseball team but not enough for two.

Fall Ball Baseball program

The following is a summary of the fall baseball program – additional information is on the Fall page. The Fall Ball baseball 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 baseball is to provide a safe, fun, developmental environment for baseball players, coaches and umpires. All baseball players are assigned to a team – there are no “tryouts” – only sort out evaluations which help form fair and balanced baseball teams as much as possible. All baseball players are asked to attend one evaluation session so that their skill level can be assessed. Our baseball programs are tiered into two levels at in the major and junior divisions.
