This level of baseball is for players aged 11 - 12 (based on age calendar) who have the skill and desire to play a higher level of baseball. This age group will hold try outs in March to determine the roster for the District 3 spring interlock season. All try-out and player evaluations are conducted by third party independent evaluators. Coaches at this age will have attended NCCP clinics and will continue to develop their coaching skills by ensuring they are teaching the players the proper baseball skills and mechanics, developing appropriate strategies along with fair play and personal skills. Coaches at this level will ask the players to dedicate themselves to baseball to develop the necessary skills and team chemistry required to compete at this level. Players of this caliber will continue to play in the summer baseball program.
Attendance at the try-out sessions is MANDATORY for this team.
Coaches and 3rd party evaluators will select the 11 player roster. As this is competitive baseball, tryouts are mandatory to select the players on the team. If a player is not selected for a travel team, they will be given the opportunity to play Major House League division.
