Kamloops, BC - Baseball BC and the Western Canada Baseball Association (WCBA), in conjunction with the Kamloops Minor Baseball Association (KMBA) and the City of Kamloops, are excited to announce that the host site for the 2017 WCBA Championships will be in Kamloops.

The KMBA has been awarded the championships, scheduled to be held August 17 to 20 at McArthur Island Park. The championships will include the following divisions of play:

  • 18U AA Boys
  • 15U AA Boys
  • 15U AAA Boys        
  • 13U AA Boys        
  • 14U Girls

Kamloops was chosen to host this exciting championship tournament for several reasons. The KMBA's proven history of managing tournaments of this size, in combination with the support it has received from the City, make large tournaments like this possible. McArthur Island can host five championships on one site, which is completely unique in Western Canada.

Baseball BC's Executive Director, David Laing, has said that “the KMBA is the single best organization in the province when it comes to hosting championships at any level.”

The City's Tournament Capital and Special Events Supervisor, Sean Smith, is excited about another opportunity to “showcase the quality of facilities and services Kamloops has to offer.”

Further details on this event will be announced as they are finalized in the months to come.
