EABA / NEZ Partnership
EABA is happy to announce that it will continue its partnership with the Edmonton Northeast Zone (NEZ) Padres for the 2023 season. Continuing on the success from last season, an MOU was formed again to join the two association's membership at the 15U and 18U levels. This partnership will allow for a larger pool of players to come together to create more competitive rep teams and provide a better playing experiences for our players.
At the 18U level, Padres will host the AAA and AA+ teams with coaches to be named at a later date. The Angels will host the AA team with EABA's Technical Director, Blake Hamer as Head Coach.
At the 15U level, the Padres will host the AAA team and the Angels will host the AA team. Head Coaches for these teams will be named at a later date.
All 15U and 18U players interested in trying for the AA or AAA teams must attend tryouts hosted by the Padres and through the evaluation process players will be placed on the appropriate AAA, AA+ or AA teams.
Players will be given the opportunity to indicate at which level they would like to be evaluated when registering for the season and for tryouts. Community 'A' level teams at both the 15U & 18U divisions will be run out of each association.
For more information regarding tryouts, please visit http://nezsports.com/baseball/baseball-program/. Tryout dates will be announced as they come available and players will be required to register online and pay the associated tryout fee with the Padres.

Please visit the Baseball Alberta website for any clarity on transfer rules.
