The other teams that make up the Cub league: 3 or 4 Beaumont Teams, Bawlf, Wetaskiwin, Camrose, Drayton Valley, Leduc, Round Hill, Thorsby and Wetaskiwin. So it is possibly that you will have to attend some or all of these locations for league play.

What is the difference between house ball and "A" Ball?
"A" Ball is played in the YEGA league, which in previous years has been made up of teams from the Edmonton and Surrounding Area. The "A" team will usually attend provincials as well, but it is not required.
If you are interested in playing "A" ball after the regular season, there are an additional 10 games and travel may be to anywhere in Alberta depending on which communities register a team. Baseball Alberta will usually group teams to minimize travel during 2 weekends of round robin play followed by the provincial championship weekend. The "A" team games will be played over the 1st three weekends in July with the final game being played on the 3rd weekend of July.
"A" ball is considered more competitive and there may be tryouts depending on the number of players interested. Game results and standings are tracked by Baseball Alberta and there is a provincial championship team at the end of the season.
"A" ball typically plays games Monday, Wednesday and/or Friday. However, game schedules are not set by BMBA.
