Travel Baseball is not a requirement for those that just want to play Spring Rec. Travel is an extra opportunity to play competitive baseball above and beyond our core Spring Rec Baseball program. In an effort to standardize the Travel experience and to become more competitive, those players interested in playing Travel Baseball in the 2019 season will be required to register and tryout in the Fall of 2018 for the next year. This is very similar to club-type programs. These tryouts are scheduled for November 3rd at the Green Brook Baseball fields. Evaluations will conducted by independent evaluators. There are no plans at this time to combine the GB Travel Baseball program with programs from the other sending district towns. The tryout process will be standardized and independent to ensure impartiality in the travel selection process. Complete tryout information is listed at the bottom of this email.
Please note, Registration for a 2019 Spring Rec Program is a requirement in order to register/ be considered for Travel Baseball in the 2019 season.
The Travel registration cost of $200 is for a 10 game travel schedule in the Spring of 2019. These games are usually on Sundays but will be scheduled around the Spring Rec season by the appropriate travel manager. We will be offering a separate winter training module for an additional cost with details TBA. Summer Travel Baseball will be a also be a separate cost and a separate registration closer to that actual season. Separate evaluations/tryouts for Summer travel will NOT be held. Travel players for 2019 will be selected in Fall of 2018. The Summer "District" team is a separate team from both the Spring and Summer Travel teams. Qualifications for the District team are determined prior to team assignment and selected by the President and the Player Agent.
Registration for the appropriate Travel level (8U, 9U, etc.) is required in order to try out for the 2019 travel team. However, payment is not required up front in order to be evaluated and there is no fee to tryout. If your player is selected for the travel team, payment will be required prior to the start of season.
The age determination day for all travel players is April 30th 2019. Your player’s age on that day is the age they are considered for travel purposes. Please register your player in appropriate age bucket based on this determination date.
There is no Spring Travel for 7U. Please stay tuned for our BIG announcement regarding 7U Summer Travel as we get closer to that season!
