An Open Invitation to all LITTLE LEAGUE ‘JUNIOR’, BASEBALL ONTARIO BANTAM SELECT, REP A or Lower Teams, Managers and Coaches.

On behalf of Oakville Little League we would like to invite you to play in the 10th annual Canada Day Classic Tournament July 1st – July 3rd, 2022.

Our expectation is that the Canada Day Classic will become one of the premiere baseball tournaments in Southern Ontario.  We recognize the need for an elite and competitive tournament for players aged 15 and under.  Game MVP’s will be recognized for their sportsmanship, team play, and display of skill.  The tournament champion will receive a trophy to keep that they can bring back to their home association.

The tournament is open to all LITTLE LEAGUE ‘JUNIOR’, Baseball Ontario SELECT (dedicated or house league) & REP ’A’ Bantam teams or lower.  Teams from across Ontario, Quebec, Western New York and Michigan are welcome to apply. Teams from Ontario must be rostered with Baseball Ontario as this tournament is a sanctioned OBA tournament. Our hope is to provide the highest level of competition in a fun, friendly and family-oriented setting.   Any teams with players born prior to 2007 are not eligible. We look forward to hosting up to 16 teams.  Last season we filled up very early.  Don’t delay if you are looking for a great tournament.

The tournament is played in Oakville, Ontario. Oakville is located on the shores of Lake Ontario and conveniently situated on the QEW Highway.  We are less than 30-minutes west of downtown Toronto and just 45 minutes from the United States border crossing at Lewiston, New York.
