Announced: Tryouts for Little League World Series Summer Tournament team
What: Every year the National Little League association hosts a national tournament that begins locally in late June and ends in August. The 10 year old team is run State by State and ends in New York State, and the 12 year old team ends nationally with the boys baseball World Series in Williamsport, and the girls softball World Series in Portland, OR.
We are limited to very strict rules and guidelines and adhere to the following key rules:
- 13 player maximum roster. No exceptions.
- Mandatory open try-outs to all 2017 GCAA registered players
- Immediately after team selection, documentation of Age and Current residency required
It is exciting opportunity to represent Garden City and play at a HIGHLY competitive level. Historically we have lasted in this tournament 2 weeks (encompassing 3-4 games), bit each year has seen substantial improvement over the last and this year with all the hard work pf our players and coaches will continue to do so. Please only commit to the tryout if you believe you can commit to a Late June early July Weeknight and Weekend Game schedule. Game schedules and weather are completely out of our control.
When: Saturday, June 3rd 9-11 AM
Where: Garden City Middle School Field
How: Players will be assessed on 4 areas: Throwing, Catching, Batting/Running, and Game Awareness-Understanding. Grading will be conducted by outside Coach and/or GCAA Board member
Cost: GCAA Sponsors the team and provides Commemorative Jerseys at no additional cost (except possible travel costs for later rounds)
