Registration is now open for the 2021 Padres Fall Performance Program (FPP) – players register for and compete at the age level they will play in for the 2022 season. This program provides elite development in a competitive environment with focus on tactical aspects of the game. Arm care, speed and agility, strength and conditioning, mental skills and technical aspects are also included. FPP sets the foundation for individual development plans during the High Performance Program (HPP).
Proudly constructed under the Edmonton Padres brand, players from across the region are welcome to participate in FPP and HPP. Also, any coaches in the region looking to build their experience may contact John Sutherland at firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest.
Central Canadian Baseball League
The Edmonton Padres have partnered with academy programs from across the Canadian Prairies to provide players with enhanced exposure and competition levels during the fall. Joining the Padres are the Calgary Bucks and programs from Lloydminster, Saskatoon, Regina and Winnipeg to form the Central Canadian Baseball League. Made up of programs with similar mindsets, this elite fall league features goals of developing and showcasing its players while working together to offer the highest quality of fall baseball league play on the Prairies. Divisions will include 18U Varsity, 18U Junior Varsity and 15U levels of play. The 18U Varsity and Junior Varsity league schedules will begin on Labour Day Weekend and wrap up with a college showcase/all-star event at the state-of-the-art Gordie Howe Sports Complex in Saskatoon while the 15U division will run for 4-6 weeks, depending on weather. Although there is a 13U division planned by the league, the Padres have opted out for 2021.
