Play Ball


The Blue Jays Baseball Academy are joining Major League Baseball to celebrate youth baseball and softball with the league-wide Play Ball weekend initiative. For 2023, the Toronto Blue Jays are hosting one day, three-hour FREE youth baseball clinics in Ottawa and Montreal for kids aged 8-12.

Players rotate through drills that cover skills including: infield, outfield, hitting, throwing, agility, and baserunning. Clinic registrants will also participate in a Baseball Athletic Training station which serves as an introduction to fundamental athletic movement.

These clinics are taught exclusively by Blue Jays Baseball Academy Instructors. Academy Instructors are NCCP registered, experienced coaches, who have been trained in the ‘Blue Jays Way’ of teaching baseball to youth.

Participants receive a Blue Jays hat and t-shirt.

Registration is free for all participants.



All registered participants receive a confirmation email after registering for a clinic. An information email about the clinic is sent out roughly five days prior to the clinic date and will contain details about the clinic including when to arrive, what to bring and if necessary, details on the inclement weather plan. Receipts will be emailed to participants at least two business days after registering.

All participants are asked to bring a baseball glove, bat, helmet, baseball cleats or running shoes, and be dressed in appropriate athletic attire. Please also bring enough water, snacks and sunscreen based on the climate that day.


For any questions please contact the Blue Jays Baseball Academy at [email protected]. Please note that as we travel for events, response time may not be immediate.
