SELECT – BANTAM DIVISION

BGSA’s Select Program is looking forward to another great season of competitive play. All BANTAM house league players should consider trying out for our select team. It’s a great way to play some competitive softball, meet new friends and have fun playing against other cities in our area while upholding our select tradition.

The select program fee is an additional $210.00, which covers the uniform (the player keeps the entire uniform),a team photo and participation in 4 tournaments in cities around Brampton. And our own Brampton Tournament, for a total of 5 tournaments.

Select Program Objectives

  • To field competitive select teams in every division. This means we need a large turn out for our tryouts and we will select the best players at every position.
  • To have the select coaches focus on developing the skills of the select players.
  • To host a successful Brampton tournament that visiting teams will want to return to every year.
