Bantam Selects (Sask Summer Games)

The Bantam Selects Program was established in 1997 as a new initiative by the Baseball Sask Coach and Player Development Committee in order to identify future Team Saskatchewan Select players. Every year players were asked to tryout for their zone select team and then compete at the Bantam Select Tournament that is held the weekend after the August long weekend of every year. In 2002 the program expanded by naming the top players from the tournament to a Team Saskatchewan Developmental Camp. In 2003 was the first year for the annual Prospect Series vs Team Alberta. In 2006 the tournament was held during the September long weekend in Winnipeg at Canwest Global Park.

NOTE: This is a SHOWCASE tournament for our coaches to see the maximum number of kids in as many defensive positions as possible. The emphasis should not be on winning at all costs by the Zone Teams and more of allowing as many kids with an opportunity to be identified.


Please note that 2016 Bantam Selects will be held  July 24-27 in Estevan in conjunction with the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games.2016 Sask Summer Games
