Please be advised that if you are looking at potentially transferring zones to play baseball on an annual basis, you will be required to fill out a Zone Transfer Request Form EACH YEAR.

  • If there is a AAA team within 100 KM in the players principle Zone of Residence (based on the Baseball Sask 8 zones recognized), those players need to play there or get signoff/approval from the President with consultation of the Head Coach of that Minor Ball Club in order to be eligible to apply for an Out of Zone Transfer to be reviewed.
  • If there is not a  AAA team within 100 KM in the players principle Zone of Residence (based on the Baseball Sask 8 zones recognized), they would then be eligible to apply for an Out of Zone Transfer to be reviewed.
  • All Zone Transfer Applications will be reviewed by the Baseball Sask Zone Transfer Committee in consultation with any/all Baseball Sask Zone Governors involved.
  • The distance in determining a players travel will be by using Google Maps (no longer by drawing a straight line “as the crow flies”).
  • The Zone Transfer Committee reserves the right to consider special circumstances in making their final decision on all Zone Transfer Requests.
  • The decision made by the Zone Transfer Committee is to be FINAL and is not open to any type of appeal process.

  8. Player requesting Zone Transfer must first register this season with his/her nearest baseball centre as required.
  9. Regina and Saskatoon are mandated to provide Baseball Sask with the list of ALL players that have been registered and/or drafted to 18U AAA Teams. The deadline for this will be November 15th each year for teams playing the next season.
