Kensico Baseball/Softball Summer Programs - Register By June 2
Kensico Baseball is proud to be supporting the participation of our players in a summer baseball/softball programs for players league age 6 through 16. Players who have participated in this program have consistently had a positive experience, developing new skills and bonding with people in and out of the community who share a love for the game.
This year we will be extending our Sandlot Program to our AA and Mustangs Division. This free developmental program will be offered on Saturday Mornings for any child looking to have fun and hone their skills. The program will begin on July Saturday July 8, 2017 and run from 9:00am - 10:30am until August 5, 2017. Please make sure your child arrives at Clove Road on time in baseball attire with plenty to drink. There will also be an 8U competitive division. Please register June 2.
The Summer Baseball/Softball programs provide travel players and towns with an organized and competitive travel baseball program. Because of the competitive nature of these programs tryouts may be necessary and teams will be formed based upon the number of registered participants and the availability of coaches. The summer season will run from late June to early August with games scheduled for multiple days during the week and possible double headers on the weekends. Participants will play in approximately 15-20 games in a six-week period. The cost of the program has not been set for the 2017 season but we expect it to be $250 - $300 for Baseball and Softball 12U, 10U and 8U and $300 - $350 for Baseball 14U. Checks will be payable to Kensico Baseball and all Fees and paper work will be collected at the first practice.
