North Toronto Baseball Association - COVID-19 Update
As we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, with the priority being health and safety for all, we wanted to let you know that the NTBA board and committees have been meeting (virtually) to develop contingency plans for the 2020 season. All decisions will be based on guidance from Toronto Health Authorities and Toronto Parks. As well, we are in regular contact with both of our governing organizations: Ontario Baseball Association and the Toronto Baseball Association.
- 2020 House League Season – has been cancelled. Please refer to the email sent to NTBA families on April 8 for registration fee options (Donation to City of Toronto COVID-19 relief fund, Rollover to 2021 season or Full Refund) – If feasible, we will work to offer alternative baseball activities later in the summer. Thank you to all the parents that have responded. The cut off to respond with your preferred option is May 8th, after this date the 2020 registration fee will automatically be rolled over to 2021. Link to City of Toronto Donation story.
- Baseball Drills and Instagram – As the weather improves, we will post some easy at home drills for players. We encourage you to please follow us: @north.toronto.baseball.

We hope everyone remains safe and healthy.
2021 Registration - Opening November 2020
Welcome to the 2021 Season of North Toronto Baseball. Our House League program is for boys and girls born from 2003-2015. The regular season runs from the beginning of May to the end of June. Our 6U to 15 U divisions return after the summer for playoffs in September.
North Toronto Baseball does not give priority registration to returning players, once registration opens, all players (new and returning) must register. The majority of our house league divisions fill up very quickly. Please make sure to register early to avoid disappointment.
Please review the Baseball Ontario Privacy Document prior to registration. By registering for House League baseball, you have acknowledged that you have received, reviewed and agree with the terms noted in the Baseball Ontario Privacy Document and North Toronto Baseball Associations' House League Registration waiver.

The fee covers uniforms, team equipment, trophies, player skills clinics, coach and umpire clinics, umpires, diamond maintenance, diamond user fees and administrative expenses. The player supplies his/her own fielding glove, footwear and protective cup which is mandatory for all players.
NTBA team rosters are based on the expectation that registered players will attend nearly all of their games, including September playoffs. Registered families are expected to keep their TeamSnap participation up to date, and if a registered player misses more than 3 games, the League reserves the right to replace that player with someone from the waiting list. Your teammates, coaches and opposing teams are counting on you!
Players cannot be registered for House League in one association and Select in another association.
CODE OF CONDUCT
Good sportsmanship, courtesy and respect for one another are essential. Spectators, players and/or coaches are not permitted to harass or direct discourteous remarks at officials or at any player. Smoking is strictly prohibited in the spectator areas, around the base lines, or near the playing field. Any player or coach ejected from a game may have to appear before the Discipline Committee to determine what, if any, further sanctions may be imposed.
Team rosters are prepared in early spring. Every effort is made to balance the teams according to age and skill level, which is based in part on the previous year's player assessments. Only Coaches' children will not be traded.
Unlike most organizations NTBA will try to honour one mutual friend request. If your child has a friend he/she would like to be placed with please enter the friend's name in the “friend request box” provided on the profile registration page.
All House League coaches and convenors are volunteers. Please get involved by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Most North Toronto Baseball games are umpired by our trained registered umpires. Formal training clinics commence in March 2021.
For our 2021 season, we will be seeking sponsors for each division rather than for each team. A divisional sponsorship will cost $1,650 for the 2021 season and will provide sponsors with the opportunity to display their company logo on jersey sleeves for all of the players and coaches
