NSBA is for players of all abilities aged 3 to 24. The age divisions are:
- 5U Blast Ball (2016/2015)
- 7U T-Ball (2014/2013)
- 9U Tadpole (2012/2011)
- 11U Mosquito (2010/2009)
- 13U PeeWee (2008/2007)

- 25U Junior Men (1995-2001)
North Shore Baseball Association is committed to do its best in keeping players playing together on fields close to their homes and schools, whether they live in either North Vancouver, West Vancouver, or Squamish. This is provided that this does not compromise team balance for that division and that NSBA is able to secure those fields. In the older divisions, which includes the “AA” and “AAA” teams, this is more challenging, but we will do our best to access fields, such as Ambleside, so it is available for players in that area.
5U and 7U Divisions
At these divisions we want players and parents/guardians to have a fun and social experience while introducing them to baseball fundamentals. In Spring 2020 we plan to increase our technical development program at these levels and we are planning to offer some extra late-Spring sessions for our older 7U (T-Ball) players [those born in 2013] interested in being introduced to pitching machines and basic pitching technique in anticipation of their entering 9U (Tadpole) Division in Spring 2021.
We plan on adding more field(s) at these divisions so that players can play close to where they live on the North Shore, eg. adding a field in the Seymour area for those players.
13U “A” and 15U “A” Divisions
Our plan for the 2020 Spring Season is for the 13U “A” and 15U “A” Division teams to play ALL of their games on the North Shore, with just a few extra games off the North Shore.
Single Season Teams
We will be offering the following single season teams for 2020:
- 15U (Bantam) AA
- 15U (Bantam) AAA
- 18U (Midget) AAA
- 25U (Junior Men)
Boundaries for the North Shore Baseball Association is the whole North Shore (North Vancouver and West Vancouver), Bowen Island, Lion’s Bay, and Squamish. It is an inclusive league without the strict boundary limitations found in other leagues on the North Shore.
What is BC (Minor) Baseball?
BC (Minor) Baseball is the largest, strongest and most rapidly growing baseball program in BC. With over 17,000 players in BC, this local grassroots organization continues to gain members and support across the province each year.
For the younger players there is virtually no difference except age groupings. In BC (Minor) Baseball, players are grouped by calendar year age. This means kids will be playing with their friends in the same grade at each and every level. The spring (regular) season runs from April to June and then there are additional opportunities for all players for the summer season.
