3rd and 4th Grade Travel Notes

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.
