Travel – Bel Air Bluecrabs

We’ve set this up a little different this year for registration. There are two different ways to register for travel baseball.

  1. Register directly for your age group for travel try outs – this is for returning players or new, who are not interested in playing rec. If you’re not selected for the team, you still have the option to play, and registration fees will transfer.

  2. Register for your age group in rec – this is for the rec player who is potentially interested in trying out. A coach will reach out (and you can reach out too – contacts HERE) and answer any questions you may have. If you are selected for the team, your registration fees will transfer.

If you’re in the 13U-17U age groups, those teams operate on a different schedule to not conflict with H.S. Baseball. You will receive information about registration directly from your coach.  


If you have questions, feel free to inquire with the appropriate coach - contacts HERE


We are looking forward to another great year of Bel Air Baseball – if you have any questions, feel free to reach out -

Travel Baseball - Our travel teams play in several different leagues, so your safest bet is to contact your age’s coach here -  Travel Contact Page if you have questions.


  • 8U-12U - Essentially you can’t go wrong with a USABat in Travel, however the design of these bats have slightly less “pop” than the BPF standard, and as such, if the respective league/tournament allows for BPF, you may swing the “old bats”. As a note HCTB is enforcing the USABat standard.


  • 13U-17U the standards are BPF and BBCOR, and as above, you should consult with your age group coach or travel coordinator.
