Baseball Alberta administers Team Alberta in order to compete in the Canada Cup 3 of every 4 years, with the Canada Summer Games taking place on the off-year. The Canada Cup is a tournament in which all provinces send their top 16-17 (2002/2001)) year old players in order to compete for a National Championship.
