This team will represent Nova Scotia at the 2021 Baseball Canada Cup (17U Nationals) tournament hosted by Regina, Saskatchewan. The 17U Selects will enter the tournament as defending champions after Nova Scotia’s historic Gold Medal win at the 2019 tournament, which was also held in Regina. 2020’s Canada Cup Tournament was cancelled due to COVID-19, as were all other 2020 Baseball Canada Championships.

Below are the players who have been selected for the 2021 team, their hometown, and the teams they have recently played for (where known). They are also separated by year of birth:
