NEW FOR THE 2019 SEASON!
CBA is proud to announce that we will be hosting a 15U Elite team for the coming season.
In June of 2014, Baseball Ontario announced that four of its affiliated associations had signed an agreement to form a new 18u Midget Elite League (MEL) commencing with the 2015 season. With the success of the league, in 2018 “Elite Baseball League of Ontario” has grown to 8 regions, 3 age groups (15u, 16u, 18u) and over 40 teams. In that time the “EBLO” has had over 75 athletes pursue their dreams of playing University and College baseball. More information on EBLO can be found here: https://www.elitebaseball.ca/
Effective as of July 1, 2018, the Clarington Baseball Association (CBA) and the Northumberland Baseball Association (NBA) have agreed in principal to work in tandem to provide at least one entry for each coming year in the Elite Baseball League of Ontario (EBLO).
For the upcoming 2019 EBLO season the 16U Entry in the EBLO will come from Northumberland while the 15U entry in the EBLO will come from Clarington.
For each subsequent year thereafter, the team chosen to play in the EBLO, and whether it will come from either Northumberland or Clarington, or maybe even both, will be decided by a select group of advisers representing both organizations by June 1st each year.
Try-outs for the Elite teams commence in August of each calendar year for the fall and following summer playing season.
