Starting in late August, the North Shore Twins run Fall Ball seasons for all three of its programs and local players who even if they are not planning to try out for the Twins, may wish to improve their baseball skills. The Fall season generally runs until Thanksgiving and is a combination of practices and games (usually 2-3 practices a week and 1-2 games on the weekend).

Grades 7 & 8 – BANTAM (first day TBD – late August)
Grades 9 & 10 – JUNIOR (first day TBD – late August)
Grades 11 & 12 – SENIOR (first day TBD – late August)

Fall Ball represents the beginning of our calendar year and is a large part of the tryout process for the following season’s Spring teams. Fall Ball is mandatory for players wishing to play regular-season Spring baseball with the Bantam, Junior or Senior teams.

All players are welcome for Fall Ball however, as the eligibility of players is bound by territories defined by the BCPBL, it is important that your place of residence falls within the Twins’ territory or you have a release from the team in whose territory you live. The Twins’ home territory is everything north of the Burrard Inlet including North Vancouver, District of North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Squamish, the Sunshine Coast and Bowen Island. The Twins also hold small parts of Burnaby and Vancouver south of the 2nd Narrows Bridge which is as follows: Sperling Avenue on the east, Lougheed Highway and East Broadway on the south and Nanaimo Street on the west. The Twins can also draw from the shared zone in Vancouver East from the Burrard Inlet to the Fraser River between Fraser Street and Boundary Road. If there are any uncertainties, please contact us.


The North Shore Twins Off-Season Conditioning program is a comprehensive baseball performance training plan designed by certified strength and conditioning specialists with a focus on improving performance on the diamond, building confidence and learning safe lifting techniques for those players that have been selected for winter training.


The program will take place at Inside Performance in North Vancouver. It will be run by Twins coaches and will include:
  • soft tissue work
  • mobility
  • plyometrics
  • strength development
  • muscle building
  • power training
  • arm care
  • speed training
  • conditioning
Athletes will be given the tools necessary to improve their speed, throwing velocity and exit velocity to better prepare them to play at the highest levels possible.


Twins Indoor Winter Training is for invited players who wish to play regular season ball with the North Shore Twins (March – August). Not only is this the final tryout period for the 2025 teams, but also important preparation time to ensure a strong start to the season for everyone involved. Final roster selections for the 2025 season will be made prior to the beginning of February.

Next year’s pre-season will consist of Winter Skills at Inside Performance mixed in with whatever outside activities the weather allows. We are excited to offer players access to Rapsodo hitting and pitching analytics. The Twins are the only PBL organization that has both the hitting and pitching Rapsodos that are utilized indoors full-time. 

Players should come dressed for inside work but should bring gear suitable for those days when we can get outside for runs or long toss. Catchers need to bring their gear and players their gloves, helmets, and bats.
