Registration for AAA Tryouts for the 2022 season is open! 13U/18U Tryouts start this weekend! Because we have started the administrative process of preparing for tryouts, I have taken down the registration link. BUT YOU CAN STILL REGISTER! Please email email@example.com for the registration link! This just ensures that any new registrants are added to our groupings, and that I don't miss a new registration. Thanks for your understanding!
Please note that we will be following the guidelines set forward by Baseball Manitoba as described in their latest Return to Play Document available at https://www.baseballmanitoba.ca/administration/registration/return-play.

Tryouts and Team Formation Policy (2021 Edition)
All Winnipeg South players are eligible to register for AAA Tryouts using the online registration system on the WSMBA website. Each 13U, 15U and 18U age group will be evaluated using independent evaluators, in their respective sessions. Parent Coaches (where applicable) will not participate in evaluations for the team they may coach.
All players are evaluated fairly over a minimum of three tryout sessions. In some cases, first cuts may be made after three tryouts, in an effort to better evaluate the remaining players. If a fourth tryout is needed, an additional fee may be required.
At the end of the determined number of tryouts, players scores are calculated. The ranking of players will be completed by independent evaluators selected by the VP of High Performance who have strong baseball credentials and have a good reputation in the baseball community. The top 10 players, once confirmed by the VP High Performance, are automatically chosen for the team, with the remaining roster spots determined by Coach’s pick. The coach has the ability to select from 3 players above and 3 players below the final roster number. For example, if our 13U team is rostering 12 players, the top 10 evaluated players make the team, with the Coach selecting two additional players from the next 5 ranked players, namely those evaluated at spots 11-15; similarly, our 18U Coach rostering 15 players could choose his last 5 roster spots from the players ranked 11th to 18th. Typically, 13U and 15U teams roster 12 to 13 players, with 18U rostering 14-16. The number of players rostered is determined by each Coach, with approval by the VP High Performance.
Once evaluations are complete and the team is determined, all participants will be notified by email within approximately 48 hours. Scores and rankings will not be provided to anyone following the tryouts.
Players who played for Wolves in the previous year and are returning to the same age-division, who cannot physically attend tryouts for a reason deemed legitimate by the AAA Committee, can submit a request to the VP High Performance and/or Coach to have a roster spot saved for them on the upcoming team. The Coach, along with the VP High Performance, will decide if a roster spot will be saved for that player. If the roster spot is saved, it will be considered a Coach’s pick, as described above.
The goal in our Winnipeg South AAA program is to secure non-parent Head Coaches who have exceptional baseball knowledge, a good reputation in the baseball community, and are committed to Winnipeg South’s values. We take pride in our Coaches and provide support to them throughout the season to ensure our values and policies are being met.
The VP of High Performance presents the WSMBA Board with Head Coach selections in January or February. Those coaches must be approved by the Board. Once approved, the Head Coaches typically select their own Assistant Coaches, however WSMBA has the authority to oversee this selection to ensure adequate Coaches are selected that will ensure our values and policies are upheld. Where a Parent Coach is chosen for the team, WS may place a qualified Assistant Coach on the team where available.
When Non-Parent Head Coaches cannot be secured, WS will approach a potential Parent Coach with the same goals in mind as a Non-Parent Head Coach. The Parent Coach’s name will be kept confidential until after tryouts. The Parent Coach is approved using this criteria:
All coaches are fully certified, as directed by Baseball Canada NCCP, and RIS (Respect in Sport) and this process is monitored by WSMBA.
