For the summer season, the team (or teams) may go up to AAA or stay AA. If we have two spring league teams, it's very likely that the strongest players will be asked to join a team that plays at the AAA level while the others will be given the option of playing at the AA level. Depending on the number of players, VCB may be required to field a team at the AAA level. Note that most other associations have one AAA summer team, regardless of whether they had 1, 2, or 3 AA teams in spring league.
BC Minor Baseball administers summer seasons for 13U AA and 13U AAA. The season will begin on either the last weekend in June or the first weekend in July, with a provincial championship tournament held over the August long weekend.
The summer season is more competitive and less about development, so there are no fair play rules. AAA also 9-man ball, meaning there are only 9 players in the active lineup at any given time, and only those players are in the batting order. There is no limit to the substitutions, however (except for the pitcher).
AAA will involve some extra travel, probably to the interior of BC and/or Vancouver Island.
Further details will be available in May 2019.
