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.

       Coach Pitched T‐Ball League is generally for Kindergartners or kids that have an understanding of the general rules of baseball.  They also are ready to have a coach pitch to them.   Each team will bat through their entire order for each at- bat. Players with 3 strikes will then hit from a tee.  Outs are via catches or play at a base.

***All 3rd graders and 4th graders that did not play the previous year in AAA, are REQUIRED to attend the Evaluation Day (generally the following week after the Spring Clinic).  This is in an effort to distribute the talent across the teams and keep all the teams competitive.

All players who register on time will be placed on a team. Players are encouraged to attend spring clinics so coaches can evaluate skills.

What is Everest Travel Baseball?

Everest Travel Baseball was formed to give opportunities to kids looking to play more baseball.  It gives them a chance to play together, against kids their same age, at a little more competitive level than is found in weekly league play.

 

When are games played and how many tournaments are we a part of?

Games are played on weekends (Friday – Sunday) starting in May and ending in August.  Our 2015 schedule has not been set yet, but last year most teams were a part of nine tournaments.

 

Do I have to give up my whole summer if my child is on the team?

Families have other interests and plans.  We don’t expect every kid to be at every tournament throughout the summer.  Ideally we would like players to be available to attend at least half of the tournaments during the season.  Players should be dedicated to their coaches’ practice schedules regardless if they are playing in an upcoming tournament or not.

 

How much travel is in travel baseball?

Again, our schedules has not been formed yet, but in 2014 we played in Pulaski (one day only), Rhinelander, Wausau East, WI Rapids, Merrill, Marshfield and Lake Hallie.  


 

Will there be tryouts?

We will make every effort to accommodate as many kids as we can.  After registration, if we reach a point where we have too many players for one team and not enough to form two we may revisit the issue.

 

What are the age cut off dates?

10U – Mostly current 4th graders - Cannot turn 11 before 5/1/2016

11U – Mostly current 5th graders - Cannot turn 12 before 5/1/2016

12U – Mostly current 6th graders - Cannot turn 13 before 5/1/2016

13U – Mostly current 7th graders - Cannot turn 14 before 5/1/2016

14U – Mostly current 8th graders - Cannot turn 15 before 5/1/2016

Some kids with summer birthdays may be in a “higher” grade but be young enough to qualify for the “lower” age team.  In most cases, the league recommends staying with your child’s school grade but ultimately the choice is up to the player’s parents.

 

How much does it cost?

 

Last year the fee was $200 per player.  This included entry fees for all league scheduled tournaments, jersey, hat and fees for winter indoor open gym sessions. Fees will not be determined until the schedule starts to finalize, but we expect it to be close to the same as last year.
