Baseball PEI is planning to send a Provincial 22U All-Star team to represent Prince Edward Island at the 2022 Baseball Canada National 22U Championships, scheduled for 4-7 August 2022 in Dartmouth and Halifax, Nova Scotia. As such, Baseball PEI is now calling for applications for the position of Head Coach of the 2022 Provincial 22U All-Star team.
The 2022 Provincial 22U All-Star team will be made up of the top 22U players from PEI (players who turn 22-year-old or younger in 2022) and will be named in approximately late June 2022. While this is subject to change, the current plan is for a couple of I.D. camps of players interested in taking part with this team before the end of April. Then in May and/or early June, there will be an open on-field tryout for this Provincial 22U All-Star team. As well, the coaching staff for this team will scout at games in the PEI Junior (22U) Baseball League, KCBL and any other category in which the top 22U players in the province are competing. Between the I.D. camps, open tryout and scouting, the coaching staff will put together a roster to attend the National 22U Championships.
Once the team is picked, the team will practice approximately once a week. The Provincial 22U All-Star team in 2022 will not be competing in any leagues, as the majority of the players are already playing in one or more leagues/competitions and are also busy working.
The Head Coach of the 2022 Provincial 22U All-Star will select their assistant coaches and team manager (up to three assistant coaches are permitted; the names of the assistant coaches and the manager must be approved by the Director of Provincial Teams) and will be tasked with running I.D. camp and the open tryout, scouting for this team, selecting the final roster (with final approval from the Director of Provincial Teams before the list is made public), running practices in the lead up to the National 22U Championships and leading the team at the National 22U Championships. The Head Coach will have to be NCCP 16+ Certified by the time of the National Championships (and the assistant coaches will have to be NCCP 16+ Trained by the time of the National Championships).
The deadline for submission of applications is Friday, 21 January 2022 at 4 pm.
