Select teams play under the auspices of the Select Ontario Baseball Association (SOBA). In addition to having fewer coaching requirements to be rostered on a select team, there is more flexibility with forming a Select team.  Play involves tournaments throughout the summer and, with team success, culminates in the SOBA provincial tournaments held on Labour Day weekend.

Ottawa Whisky Jacks Select teams can either play in NCOBA league play, or can be a team that is formed for a short season, primarily for the purposes of competing for the provincial tournament.  For example, players can be rostered to other non-OBA teams but can also play on a Select team for additional baseball opportunities. Select players could maintain a primary commitment to their non-OBA team while gaining additional experience and competitive play through their Select team’s activities.

There are currently no plans to form Select teams for the 2021 season; however, if you are interested please contact us at ottawawhiskyjacks@gmail.com.
