In 2022 we successfully re-introduced dedicated Girls Baseball teams in the KBA. The momentum is growing for an all Girls baseball league in Ottawa with most Ottawa Little Leagues now offering Girls only teams. Ottawa West, East Nepean, South Ottawa, Orleans and Glebe Little League intend to form Girls-only teams for the 2023 season. In addition, the Director of Girls Baseball in the Outaouais has reached out and wants to arrange for exhibition games between their girls teams and ours in 2023.
This is an exciting time for the growth of Girls Baseball in our city!
This indoor skills development program for girls will run on Friday evenings from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. at the Bell Sensplex in March. Girls ages 7-15 can participate in these fun baseball learning and training sessions. New players are welcome and no baseball experience is needed!
Registration is now open for this program. You can register via the RAMP Registration system. If you need help, check out our How to Register page.

Several other Ottawa baseball associations plan to have girls teams this season including Ottawa West, East Nepean, South Ottawa, Orleans and the Glebe. We may also play exhibition games against girls teams from the Outaouais association.
If we don’t have enough players registered to form a Kanata team at a specific age level, we can work with other local associations to have players join one of their girls teams. Our goal is to get as many girls playing baseball as possible.
Registration is now open for the 2023 baseball season! Register via the RAMP Registration system. If you need help, check out our How to Register page.
