7u and 8u Travel Tryouts Announced


Written by: Travel Commissioner
Friday, April 16, 2010

Greetings to all!  Now that baseball is in full swing with the rec season having begun and the older age groups' travel teams relatively settled and moving forward, it is time to think about the travel baseball season for the 7 and 8 year old age groups (7u and 8u).  This e-mail is intended to reach all those that are currently registered for the 2010 MYAA rec baseball program at these two age groups.

There is a document placed on the website that will explain the in-house travel/district program further. All are encouraged to review this.

Simply put, the structure will be the formation of a travel/district team (no districts for 7u) that will begin in May and continue through the mid to end of July in most cases. The teams will be selected through a tryout process, however, this will not be the sole factor considered (but a big one).

The tryouts will be held on the following date and time for both age groups: 
Sun, April 25th, 2:00 - 4:00 pm 
Please meet at Field #2 - Hartford Crossing Complex (across from Lenape HS) 
For those interested in head coaching the 7u travel/district team, an application will need to be completed and forwarded back to me ( by Wednesday April 21st. This application can be found on the MYAA Baseball website. There will be an interviewing process for those interested once the applications are returned.   

Depending upon the interest level, there is the possibility that two teams could be formed.  This will not be determined by the board until after tryouts have been conducted.

If your child is interested in trying out for the in-house travel/district team on April 25th, please send me an e-mail ( with your child's first/last name and age group (or grade level) - i.e.) 8U = 2nd grade - by Wednesday, April 21st. The age cutoff date per Cal Ripken rules is April 30th, however, they must tryout in the grade level they are currently playing the rec season in. 

Please advise should you have any questions.

Yours in baseball,
Jim Balzan
