The Confederation of European Baseball will hold the 2011 Qualifier tournament for the European Championship for the age group of Cadets (16 years old and younger) in Belgrade this summer. The tournament is set to begin on the 18th of July and conclude on the 23rd. Representative teams from Serbia, Croatia, Ukraine, Slovenia, Slovakia, Switzerland will compete in the six day youth tournament on the baseball field located at Ada Ciganlija. The winner of the tournament will qualify to compete for the European Championship in 2012. The SBDA will play a vital role in the execution of this tournament, working hard alongside representatives from Bejzbol Savez Srbije (Baseball Association of Serbia) as well as PONY League of Serbia.
