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.
All Ravens and Rooks teams play a combined spring and summer league schedule. They will practice two times a week from March through July-once at the Wyckoff baseball school with a concentration on hitting and once outdoors with a concentration on defense and base running. All of our coaches have been professionally trained by Garett Teel, who played and coached for the Los Angeles Dodgers and has developed a proven method of training. Many of his former clients have gone on to play on college and professional teams.
Fall 2014 Teel Ravens and Rooks
We are currently looking for a limited number of players for our fall Ravens and Rooks teams. Our organization began in 2006 with one team and has expanded to include every age division from 8U through high school. The focus of all our programs is to build confidence and success on the baseball field by teaching the players the fundamentals of the game along with sportsmanship and teamwork. All of our coaches have been professionally trained by Garett Teel, who played and coached for the Los Angeles Dodgers and has developed a proven method of training. Many of his former clients have gone on to play on college and professional teams.
The Ravens and Rooks play 2 seasons a year-a spring/summer season and a fall season. Once a player makes our spring/summer season, his spot, going forward is secure, as long as he is in good standing. Our tryouts are for any open spots on the fall roster. Although making the fall team does not guarantee your player a spot on the spring/summer team it will give him a clear advantage. All age divisions will play in the same age divisions as they did in the fall except 12U. Our 12U team will be considered a New 13 and will move up to the big field. High school tryout dates have not been set yet but we will email you the details when we have them if you submit on line player information sheet.
Tryout date and time have been changed. There will not be a tryout on Friday, July 25.
Tryouts will be at Franklin Lakes Municipal fields, 480 DeKorte Dr, Franklin Lakes, New Jersey on Monday, July 28 . Tryout cost is $20 per player. Your child should come to the tryout for the age he WAS on April 30th of this year.
Monday, July 28: 9:00am-10:15am-8U-10U
Please go to our web site, www.teelbaseball.com/ravens and fill out the on line Player Information Sheet. Please indicate tryout date you will be attending. If you have already completed the on line form, please email us the tryout date you will be attending so we can be properly staffed. A supplemental tryout may be scheduled at the end of August but only if we are unable to fill the rosters with the attendants of the scheduled tryouts.
We look forward to seeing you.
Garett Teel, Sandy Teel and the Ravens and Rooks Coaching Staff
