Select Info & Coaches
Select baseball is a team commonly formed of 12-16 players living within the Brampton area. The Brampton Royals field Select teams from ages 10u to 18u that play in the Central Ontario Baseball Association (COBA) of the Ontario Baseball Association (OBA).
Our tier 3 teams from ages 10U to 18U play in the COBA AA or Select loop. The COBA league schedule consists of approximately 24 games, over a 16-week period starting early May ending mid August. About half of these games are played in Brampton and the remaining are played in neighbouring cities including Etobicoke, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, Milton, Niagara Falls, and Georgetown.
Our Select teams usually play in 4-6 weekend tournaments throughout the summer, with some of them being travel / overnight tournaments. There are also additional COBA Playoff Tournaments in late August, which determine the cities that represent COBA in the annual Provincial Select tournament on Labour Day Weekend.
Most Brampton Royals Select teams practice 1-2 times per week during the indoor off season from October to April, including at practices at the BMBI owned Upper Deck Baseball Academy indoor facility from January-April.
Visit Upper Deck Baseball Academy for more information.
Team’s budgets will be between $800 and $1,500 per player, each year, which includes uniforms, training equipment, indoor facility rentals and tournaments. Many teams offset this cost by team fundraising programs and events.
Coaches are interviewed and selected by the BMBI Rep & Select Coach Selection Committee each year in August and then hold tryouts to choose their teams in September. For more team specific details please reach out directly to our Select coaches for each age group below.
