GOOD OPENING WEEKEND FOR CHILLIWACK PEEWEE AA COUGARS NAVY

Posted by Chilliwack Minor Baseball at Apr 8, 2019 9:48AM PDT 

Good opening weekend for The Chilliwack Peewee AA Cougars, playing in the Aldergrove Minor Baseball Ice Breaker tournament. April 5th – 7th.

The boys went 4-0 with an eventual 6-5 Win against Newton/Surrey in the final to earn the championship. Strong outings on the mound and good defensive play allowed only 10 runs against the entire weekend, while great hitting led the way scoring 29 runs over 4 games.

The boys got their feet wet on Saturday playing in the first games of the season winning both by scores or 11-2 and 9-2. Sunday would prove to be a test, facing a very good Newton/Surrey in game 3, who won the 2018 Provincial championship. However, starting Pitcher Ryan Post would give Chilliwack an edge by pitching a 3-hit, 1- run complete game, while he and his team mates put 3 on the board over 6 innings for the win.

The championship final would see a re match of game 3 with both teams finishing first and second in round robin play. Both teams where led by great pitching again, and great at bats with Chilliwack edging Newton/Surrey again this time by 1 run and a 6-5 Victory. Another great pitching start by Riley Kwak and eventual closer Alex Rezka.

Most valuable player of the game went to Seb Chalmers-Owega who drove in 2 RBI’s in the 5th that proved to be the game winning runs.

PEEWEE AA REP TRYOUTS - UPDATE

Posted by Chilliwack Minor Baseball at Feb 12, 2019 8:08AM PST 

Thank-you for everyone’s hard work and time in coming out to the tryouts for the Cougars 2019 Pee Wee Rep teams.

The number of players and their talent has certainly made coaches decisions extremely difficult!!!

As the players have been told – there are two rep teams starting up now and a third rep team will be formed in July once the players have had the opportunity and challenge of participating in the Spring A-season in which they will be placed on one of 4-5 Chilliwack teams and compete against other cities such Abbotsford, Mission, Aggasiz, Aldergrove and each other. That will culminate in a playoff showdown! Chilliwack has won the A-season playoffs the last two years! Once the Spring season is done the players form the 4-5 Chilliwack teams will tryout to form 1 rep team and compete for the opportunity to play for a Provincial Championships!

To put things in perspective for everyone – this is just the third year of Chilliwack having 2 AA rep teams. Historically there would be one rep team which was mainly comprised of 2nd year players (Grade 7) and maybe 2-3 first year (Grade 6) players. The addition of a second rep team has allowed 12 more players to be able to play rep all Spring! This is fantastic for the development of our program! As you know kids develop at different times – there is a huge range in physical size as well as mental maturation in these 11-13 year olds! Some kids have hit a growth spurt or entered puberty and others won’t for maybe another 4 years. If your child does not make the AA team now please encourage them to stay with it and keep working out – their time will come if they really want it! We have had kids who have never made a rep team until Midget and now are playing College Prep!

For those players who did not try out for rep OR do not appear on this list you are asked to attend the next 2 Saturday nights (FEB 16 and 23) Peewee evaluations for placement on a Peewee A team. These will take place @ The Landing 6:15-7:15

The following 14 players have been invited back for an additional tryouts this Thursday at 5:30 -7pm at 49105 Elkview Rd Chilliwack, BC (Hall Barn): If you can not make this tryout please email COACH Jeremy at jeremymwhall@yahoo.ca

THESE MAYBE THE LAST TRYOUTS SO PLEASE ATTEND in order to give your player the best opportunity to make one of the rep teams. If you have changed your mind and do not want to continue with tryouts please let us know as well.
