Baseball in Victoria BC

by hwilde on April 24, 2011

Well, there’s baseball, aka hardball, then there’s softball, either fastball or slowpitch, but whatever your game, you will find it here in Victoria!  Regardless of your age, gender, or skill level, there’s a ball team that wants you to play with them.  Baseball season in Victoria starts in early spring and runs well into fall, depending upon the league in which you play, and how serious it is.

There are a number of baseball associations in Greater Victoria, administering numerous leagues.  The main contenders are:

The Greater Victoria Baseball Association – (GVBA) which provides direction and support for the BC Minor Baseball program in Greater Victoria as well as the BC Premier and Junior Premier Baseball Leagues.  They also coordinate competitive recreational baseball for players over 17 years old.

Greater Victoria Slopitch Association – (GVSA) has operated in Victoria for more than thirty years, and offers competitive (A and B divisions) and recreational teams.  The 6-4 Mixed Slopitch league is Slo Pitch National (SPN) Sanctioned, and in 2011 32 teams in 3 divisions. The GVSA is the largest mixed league in Victoria.

SVI Minor Fastpitch Softball – Coordinates Leagues throughout Greater Victoria, Southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

Little League Victoria – whose member leagues provide a wide variety of ball programs that include baseball, softball, T ball (baseball for tykes), Blastball (softball for tykes), and Challenger, modified baseball for kids with special needs.

The boys (and girls) of summer are happy to be living in Victoria, where we can play baseball, whether hardball, fastball or slowpitch, practically year round.  BATTER UP!


Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.

hey I was wondering if a person could register for slopitch even if they don’t have a team, and just be added onto a team that is in need of a player?
