ABOUT OUR TRAVEL BASEBALL PROGRAM:
For players ages 8 through JV. Experienced professional and travel league coaches will teach kids “by the book”, not just the fundamentals, but also the offensive and defensive tactics, the real “game situations” that make for successful teams. Our goal is to develop a healthy team atmosphere where players “pick each other up”, where individuals learn and practice solid skills, and then use them to compete as a team.
We play in an elite travel leagues such as the NJYB, PBI and NEBAS. Most home games are played at Rittenberg Field in Piermont, away games generally within a 30 – 40 minute driving distance from Piermont. We aim to play a Fall Schedule of 8 games and a Spring Schedule of roughly 8 games (either in league or tournament play). Teams may also choose to play in summer leagues. We realize players at this age are often involved in their local Little League, which we encourage. We will avoid as much as possible scheduling conflicts with players' Little League and All Star teams. The PAL hopes to play several weekend tournaments each year (i.e. Bergen County Charity Classic, Cal Ripken in Aberdeen, MD, Cerbo in NJ, Sports at the Beach in Rehobeth Beach, DE, Cooperstown Dreams Park, Jack Cust March Madness, Flemington, NJ, Baseball Heaven on Long Island, etc.).
The basic cost (TBD) pays for league fees, insurance, indoor batting cage and gym use, field and umpire fees, and uniforms. Parents must be aware, however, that it does not pay for batting helmets, catcher’s gear (for catchers), baseball bags, etc. Nor does it pay for tournament fees or professional coaching clinics. We hope to be able to offset some of these additional costs through fundraising.
We believe in giving players ample playing time and experience at least at two positions, but in return expect a positive attitude of cooperation from both kids and parents, as well as prompt attendance at games and practices. As an elite team, players as well as parents must bear in mind that playing time, batting order and specific positions are tied to player performance, competitiveness and enthusiasm. All constructive comments will be welcome, the proper forum for which will always first be via telephone or email.
