Welcome to Clarington Baseball Association (CBA) home of the Clarington Orioles

Tryouts for 2020 teams will begin in early September for all  teams.  Try out dates for several divisions have been added below.  PLEASE NOTE THE SCHEDULE HAS CHANGED, SEE BELOW:

Notes about tryouts:  each year in August/September/October, players have the opportunity to tryout for Rep and Select programs.  Each of these programs offers a more competitive level of baseball and have limited space.  Players are selected based on skill to represent Clarington as “Orioles”.  The registration fee for tryouts is good for all levels (Rep and Select) and teams and is $10.

  • Players are expected to attend T1 tryouts in order to tryout for T2.  You do not have to tryout for Rep, if your wish is to play select, but we encourage all players to tryout.
  • Tryouts are mandatory and exceptions to the tryout process are at the discretion of the head coach.  Any player who misses a tryout without permission from the head coach will not be permitted to continue on in the process.
  • Players are requested to not wear Orioles gear (including jerseys to the tryouts) bags, hats and helmets are acceptable.
  • Coaches are not permitted to have any parent helpers or previous coach’s from their age group assist in the on-field drills or in the selection process.

Good luck everyone, check back for changes to dates and times.

Do you live outside the Municipality of Clarington?

To attend a tryout for a Clarington team, you must first receive a ‘Release’ from the baseball club in your local area.  You may register for a tryout in advance, but will NOT be permitted on the field unless you are able to provide your Release.
