RELEASES

At this time, the different associations that make up Baseball Quebec are voting on the proposed rule changes for 2020. 

One of the proposals concerns releases. The vote ends on February 15th. After having discussions with Lac St-Louis and Baseball Quebec, we are authorized to implement the rule changes proposed for 2020. Please refer to the new rules further below.

For parents registering their child(ren) to play baseball for Saint-Laurent and is not a resident of Saint-Laurent, Town of Mont-Royal and Outremont will need to request a release from your home association.

In 2018, Baseball Quebec created a link to assist people to look up which association someone belongs to by searching the postal code.

 

If you are a new member to Saint-Laurent baseball and do not live in the areas mentioned above, please use the link to see which association you will need to ask to be released from.

Not having a release will mean that your child(ren) and the team he/she/they play for will be ineligible to participate in tournaments, regionals, end of season championships and any other official Lac St-Louis and Baseball Quebec event.

If needed, please contact us for assistance in proceeding with requesting a release.
