At Home Baseball Series
The At Home Baseball Series provides opportunities for youth players that would like to focus in on some skill specific training. These training sessions will greatly benefit them while they are at home and as they move into the 2020 season and beyond.
Join the Facebook Live Free At Home Baseball Event every Friday at 11:00am for another installment of At Home Baseball Live with Gopher State Baseball.
Elk River Youth Baseball Families:
Elk River Youth Baseball Association will continue to monitor and update this message with the latest updates regarding the COVID-19 situation.
As of now, below are the updates:
ALL Elk River Youth Baseball operations are postponed indefinitely.
We have started to select some travel teams as best as we can. Not all have, or will be selected, and if we are able to get outside at some point, we may hold a modified try out process for any teams that are left.
The following teams have been selected:
15AAA, 15AA, 14AAA, 14AA, 13AA, 13A, 12AAA and 11AAA.
The remaining teams will most likely not be selected until we know more (12A, 11A, 10AAA, 10A Red, 10A Black, 9U).
We STRONGLY encourage all kids to get outside and throw a baseball to try to get ready for the possible baseball season.
We are actively waiting to hear what will be allowed for baseball activities. We will plan on starting our house leagues once we are given the go ahead to start practicing.
The Elk River Youth Baseball Training Facility is currently closed. We will send out an update when this will be available again.
We appreciate your patience during this time and wish you and your family good health.
ELK RIVER YOUTH BASEBALL BOARD
2020 Summer Baseball Registration is now open. Click the below link to start your registration process.
See the Travel page for a list of travel tournaments. Most tournaments will be registered and displayed on our website in early January.
13AA Omaha tournament has been cancelled due to the CWS also being cancelled.
This is just a clarification regarding our 3rd and 4th Grade traveling teams, as there have been some questions as to how it works.
All 3rd & 4th graders are eligible to try out for Traveling Baseball. We encourage all 3rd graders to consider trying out for travel baseball, as they will be placed in an entry level travel league.
2nd graders must request permission from the traveling director.
ALL traveling teams will compete in the MYAS leagues.
3rd and 4th grade teams are dependent entirely upon how many players are trying out, as well as ability.
If we have enough 3rd graders trying out we MAY have a 9U team. This is our goal, but if we do not have enough players and/or talent at this level, then 3rd graders would play in the 10A league. Both 9U and 10A are entry level traveling leagues.
If numbers and ability work out, our goal is to have 3 or more teams at the 3rd/4th grade level. The top 4th graders will be placed on our 10AAA team, and the top 3rd graders will be placed on our 9U team (assuming we have enough 3rd graders to make a team. The remaining players (3rd and 4th graders) will form one or more 10A teams, depending on numbers and ability. If there are more than one 10A teams, these teams will be split up equally. This is all subject to change based on the Travel Director input.
Players not making a travel team will automatically be placed in our very competitive house league and still should attend the House Evaluations.
