The Rooks program was established and is designed to develop and instruct players who are looking to play town travel level baseball. We want every boy to have the opportunity to play and be successful on the baseball field. The Rooks players get the same high caliber instruction as our Ravens players and the same high caliber coaching. Our philosophy is to give young players good information with good coaching and provide the players the opportunity to execute on the baseball field.
Spring and Summer 2015 Teel Ravens and Rooks Teams
Baseball 2015 is just around the corner and the Ravens and Rooks are looking forward to another great year. Tryouts for our Ravens elite club teams for the spring/summer of 2015 will take place in November and December.
9U-14U Spring/Summer Teams
We will be forming a new 9U team and will fill any open roster spots we have on our 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, and 14U teams for the spring. 12U team will be attending Cooperstown Dreams Park the week of July 25. Our 9U-14U teams play a combined spring/summer season. All players must commit to both seasons. Season cost information as well as general information about the season will be provided at the tryout. Training will begin the first week of January, with once a week winter workouts. All invited players will be required to pay the $375 winter workout payment immediately upon accepting a position on the team. Each season will include league games, one indoor and one outdoor practice a week and tournaments. Practice days and times will not be available until shortly before the start of the season.
The Rooks, will also be playing in the spring/summer. These teams will be for those players, ages 7-9 who love the sport, want to play, but are looking to play club level baseball for the first time. Emphasis will be on basic skill work and confidence building. We want to give every boy an opportunity to play. There will be no tournament play and all games will be local. Players who come to the Ravens tryouts and aren't ready for that level of play will be offered a chance to play with the Rooks. All Rooks players will participate in once weekly winter workouts starting in January and during each season will play one game a week along with 2 practices per week.
We have completed our tryouts and selected our players. However, we do need an additional player for a couple of our teams, including one player for our 12U Cooperstown Dreams Park team. If you would like to find out if there is an opportunity at your son's age level, please email us at email@example.com with his age as of April 30, 2015 and we will let you know whether we are looking for a player at that age. At that point, we will set up a private evaluation.
15U-17U High School Summer Teams
This summer we will have two high school teams. Both will be designated 17U but the younger team will play in some 16U tournaments.
We have completed our tryouts and selected our players. However, we are still looking for a couple of players to round out our rosters. If you would like to find out if there is an opportunity for your son to tryout, please send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with his age as of April 30, 2015, his grade and his primary and secondary positions. We will email you back and let you know whether there is an opportunity for him to tryout.
