Girls should sign up for Tee Ball through Softball Registration.  If a girl registers for Baseball,  we will assume they want to play Baseball with the understanding that 99% of participants will be  Boys.


As you register, your first option in the Organization Options section will be Travel or In House. Some information is below but for more detailed information return to the Baseball Webpage to help understand the differences and expectations, before registering.

Travel Baseball

If your child is hoping to play on a Travel Team (plays in weekend Tournaments and weekday League play) they will be required to go through the Tryout process and you will need to pay the full registration fee.

After tryouts, players that are not placed on a Travel Team will be placed on an In-House team at the appropriate grade level and those partial refunds will be made within approximately 10 business days of team announcements. If a player who is not placed on a travel team is going to opt-out of Baseball completely, they must do that within 10 days of Teams being announced.

Please see the Travel Baseball webpage for information about any upcoming parent meeting dates, tryout dates, and other important information about the program. The Travel option is only available to players currently in the 3rd - 9th grades.


Travel Team Players and Parents will also be required to sign an In-Season Commitment Agreement prior to Tryouts.

*New for 2023 -  the travel baseball hat package is included in registration. If you need a jersey package details on how to order and when to try-on will be posted to the travel baseball facebook page and emailed. 

PLEASE NOTE:

* Travel Fees include a $95 Tryout Fee for 9U thru 14/15U.  Should a player not make a travel team, the amount they paid minus the Tryout Fee will be applied to the player’s In-House fee or refunded back via the original form of payment as applicable.
 

* If an athlete attends the tryout prep sessions at Starters and/or the Savage Dome and requests a refund on the season a fee of $25/session attended up to a max of $100 will be deducted from the refund amount.
