Mariners join elite league

The Victoria Mariners Baseball Club will be the first baseball organization in the city to join the B.C. Premier Baseball League (BCPBL).

The Victoria Mariners Baseball Club will be the first baseball organization in the city to join an elite league of bantam level baseball teams in the B.C. Premier Baseball League (BCPBL).

The BCPBL has created a third high performance league that will allow athletes in the bantam group (ages 13 to 14) to train and compete with the very best in the province. The BCPBL recently announced that it will manage all league play and the bantam premier league will also have its own provincial championship in 2016.

Like the BCPBL and BCJPBL before it, the bantam premier or prep league will be home to a number of high performance teams, both on Vancouver Island and the mainland. Athletes will enjoy the same level of experienced coaching, player development and competition at the bantam premier level that they would at both the junior premier and premier levels.

Playing as a team member in the bantam premier league is a way to ensure athletes are prepared with both the confidence and appropriate skill set to ensure success and make the leap to the junior premier and premier levels.

A step above the bantam AAA league, the bantam premier league is designed for athletes who are committed to their sport and have a strong desire to pay high performance baseball for the remainder of their high school years.
