There will be additional expenses with Competitive AA teams that are not included in the player's registration and tryout fee. These will be for expenses such as umpires, tournament entry fees, exhibition games, game balls, etc. The additional fee can range from $100.00 - $400.00 per player depending on the extent of the additional expenses. A slush fund may be created from parents on the team, or to minimize these additional fees, teams may decide to organize a fundraiser(s) or obtain sponsors.

Competitive teams are usually determined between the middle of February to the middle of March. If there are enough players registered, there will be a tryout process starting shortly after registration has ended. Players that do not make the Competitive AA team are encouraged to play for a Community A team.
Depending on weather and indoor facility availability the season starts with 1-2 practices per week around the beginning to middle of March.
The Competitive AA league utilizes a 3 round seeding / tiering format with teams playing in a Regional format in May, a North / South Divisional format in June, and a Provincial Tiering format in July, with the provincial tournament weekend happening at the end of July / start of August. Each round of seeding / tiering historically involves 2 weekends per month (May, June, and July) with teams playing 2 - 4 games per weekend.
Practices and exhibition games would take place during the week, days to be determined. Teams may also decide to enter tournaments or play exhibition games on weekends that are not scheduled seeding / tiering weekends, but this is determined by each team and diamond availability.
