2019-2020 Grand Island Baseball Travel Teams

In addition to offering a house league experience for its players, Grand Island Little League sponsors travel teams at the 8U level and up. We are looking and finalizing coaches in certain age areas so a tryout can occur.

This year we are happy to be offering more teams for baseball at more age levels.  For 2020, we are planning teams for 8U, 9U, 10U, and a combined 11U/12U team.

Mission Statment:
The goal of the Grand Island Little League Travel Team is teach baseball through teamwork, and working on the values of hard work, dedication, respect, and sportsmenship. 
 
Commitment:
Being on a youth travel team requires a commitment of both athlete and parent/family. This will include a commitment of both time and money. The commitment to this team is more than to a house team and carries higher expectations. Players selected for this travel team will likely have a few practices in the fall if the weather cooperates. We will then take a break and practices will resume indoors in January. Players must also be committed to playing in a Sunday travel league (Sunday’s in May, June, and July) and attending approximately three weekend tournaments in July (exact locations and dates are not out yet for the 2020 tournament season)

 

Please note that these are competitive teams with limited rosters and not every player who tries out will be selected for a team. In addition, playing time and positioning of players on the travel teams is at the sole discretion of the coaches. Players will be selected based upon their play during the most recent season, tryout, and the player’s ability to be a good teammate. 

*Players are encouraged to try out at the youngest age level they are eligible to play at. 

**Please fill out the form for the tryout and team your child would be trying to make. A child must have a completed form to participate.

***There is an extra cost to participate on Grand Island Travel Teams.
