Surfers Baseball

Little league

Our players participate in the  Gold Coast Baseball Association (GCBA). Games are played in a Home and Away format. Team sizes are 9 on the field plus bench players up to 10 or 11 players in total. This is the first level of baseball where children are separated into two groups based on their skill level, Little League Majors & Little League Minors.

This is also the first level where a semi-competitive environment is introduced with scores recorded and finals played however the emphasis is still on skill development and equal participation. Although players are rotated though a variety of positions throughout the season this age group sees children starting to focus on more specific roles within the team.

Whilst players still pitch to the opposition in Little Minors the rules are modified to assist game play continuity and player enjoyment, this is achieved with no “base on balls”.

Little League is also the first opportunity for exposure at a representative level. The GCBA enters teams in the State Championships each year and then onto the Australian National Little League Championships. Our club, in conjunction with the GCBA provides some of the best baseball training and education in the state.

During the Christmas break Little League players can be selected into teams to play in the local GCBA Summer Classic. Teams from around Australia and New Zealand participate in this tournament in early January and forms the start of the representative season.
