MARK YOU CALENDARS: DC Everest Youth Travel Baseball Team Tryouts
This next season we will be holding Travel Baseball Team tryouts for ages 11-14 in the fall (ages 9 and 10 do not hold tryouts). Your son will have (3) sessions to attend where they will be evaluated on their skills and live play ability. The players will be selected to be on the travel team on October 1. We will do another final evaluation in the winter to determine if your son will be on the "A" team or "B" team. Those teams will be announced on February 18. All players will practice together. The following days/times have been set up for the fall evaluations:
September 11: Ages11/12 @ 4:30-6:30 and Ages 13/14 @ 3:30-5:30

NOTE: All evaluations will take place at Jones 1 & 2 fields and Babe Ruth fields at Kennedy Park. We will make (2) teams for each age group if we have enough players OR there will be (1) team with a maximum of (15) players.

3 Myths that are Destroying the Youth Sports Experience for our Kids
Myth #1, “The Tiger Woods/10,000 Hour Myth:” Your child must specialize as early as possible if he or she wants to play college or pro sports
Myth #2 “The 9 Year Old National Champion Myth:” We need to win as soon as possible, as often as possible, travel as far as we need to get games, and only pick and play the kids who help us do that.
Myth #3, “Youth Sports is an Investment in a Scholarship:” If my kid specializes, gets on the winning team as early as possible, and I invest in long distance travel, private lessons, and the best gear, I will recoup this investment when college rolls around.
