Cal Ripken Travel Baseball 10U, 11U, 12U

Updated Thursday February 9, 2017 by John Hand.

Niskayuna Travel Baseball for ages 10U, 11U, and 12U

TRYOUT IS Sunday Feb 26 1-3pm Union Field House.  Register to tryout by 2/9/17 midnight.

Niskayuna Baseball is opening registration for our 2017 Spring/Summer Travel/All-Star teams.  

 

What is travel baseball:  Travel baseball is a division of play established to allow players to participate in a higher level of competition that is structured completely different from our recreation program.

 

This level of play is not an extension of the recreation commitment however your participation in our recreation league is required to be eligible.

 

A summary of what you can expect participating in this division of play:

 

1.   There will be a tryout for 10U, 11U, and 12U teams.  If the player is selected for the travel team at his/her level, separate fees are collected to fund the Armory workouts and travel season, and All-Star teams.

 

2.  A significant commitment of time, with practices during the week and games virtually every Sunday, as well as some games on Friday night.  Spring travel games are located throughout the Capital Region. During the summer All-Star tournaments, there could be additional travel (and associated family costs) outside of our area, including out of state.

 

3.  A high level of play with no guarantee of playing time, although each team is encouraged to rotate players during the spring season as they develop and progress to All-Star play. 

 

4.  There is no guarantee that by registering to try out for Travel program that you will be placed on a team.  While the league will do its absolute best to create as many opportunities there is a possibility that some players trying out will not be added to a roster.

3.  Players who make these travel / all-star teams will then register for the 4 session Armory workout.
