GCAA Travel Baseball Tryouts
In 2018, the GCAA will be sponsoring travel baseball teams in the U8, U9 and U10 age groups. On the afternoon of Sunday, November 19 the GCAA will be holding tryouts for the 2018 U9 and U10 teams. Tryouts for the U8 team, will take place in late February or early March 2018. To be eligible to tryout, a child must live or attend school in Garden City and meet the following age requirements:
U8 team (tryout in Feb or March 2018) : Players born between 9/1/2009 and 8/31/2010. Players born between 9/1/2010 and 11/30/2010 who are currently in second grade are also eligible.
U9 team (tryout on Sunday November 19, 2017): Players born between 9/1/2008 and 8/31/2009. Players born between 9/1/2009 and 11/30/2009 who are currently in third grade are also eligible.
U10 team (tryout on Sunday November 19, 2017): Players born between 9/1/2007 and 8/31/2008. Players born between 9/1/2008 and 11/30/2008 who are currently in fourth grade are also eligible.
Players born after November 30, 2010 are not eligible to participate in the GCAA travel baseball program in 2018. Similarly, since the GCAA does not sponsor any travel baseball teams for ages U11 and older, players born prior to September 1, 2007 are also not eligible to tryout for a GCAA travel team.
The U9 and U10 teams that are selected in November will begin winter workouts in January 2018 and will play in the Spring, Summer and Fall of 2018. Players must be willing to play baseball on a year round basis and be committed to their team. We recognize that participants play other sports and have other activities, and the GCAA encourages that diversity of activity. We understand that players may mi ss games or practices from time to time because of illness, family events, practices or games for other sports or participation in other activities. We simply ask that the children and parents recognize that they have made a commitment to their baseball team and that they communicate with their coaches so that the teams are not in a position where other players on the team do not have a good experience because too many players are regularly choosing another activity at the expense of baseball.
Please also understand that any child participating in the GCAA travel program must also participate in the GCAA intramural baseball program in the spring of 2018. The intent of the travel baseball program is to provide the opportunity to play more baseball to those who are interested, not to replace our intramural program.
The tryouts on Sunday November 19 will take place in the afternoon at an indoor facility. The exact times and location of the tryouts will be determined shortly and we will notify everyone once the times are set. In order to be eligible for travel tryouts, all players must pre-register for the tryouts via email (with "Travel Tryout Registration" in the subject line).
