What is Travel Baseball?
Travel baseball gives talented players an opportunity to play at a higher level of competition than town leagues. Top level programs pull the top players from multiple towns playing together. And, Travel Baseball allows players an opportunity to travel around New England and see where they measure up against other talented ball players.
Travel ball is not for everyone. When it comes to the top programs it is not pay to play. It allows a player the chance to go through a tryout process which helps should they play at the High School level. In addition, they compete for a roster spot, and if they make a team, they also compete for playing time.
How to get started with Travel Baseball
Do your homework on which are the best travel teams out there. Player development should be a top priority for the program that you choose. My advice is to attend multiple tryouts. Make sure that the program that selects you is a good fit for your entire family. Check the New England Elite Baseball League website or AAU website for upcoming tryout dates.
Benefits of Travel Baseball
The best travel programs have top notch coaching.
How Do I Choose the Age Group?
This is the number one question. Whatever age your player is on May 1, 2021 that is the age group they should tryout for.
Why You Should Consider Travel Baseball
If you’re looking to take your child’s game to the next level there is no other option. Competition breeds success. You need them to compete against better players on a weekly basis.
When Does it start?
Most travel programs begin their training sessions in the Fall months. Tryouts are usually in Late June, July, and early August depending on the age groups.
How much Does it Cost?
Prices may vary, the more a program offers, the higher the price. A rough estimate would be between one and three thousand dollars. The younger ages tend to be closer to $1,500.00 and 13 and over are closer to $3,000.00 Just be aware, these prices do not include travel costs for away from home tournaments.
All teams require a non-refundable deposit at the time the player is offered the contract. Most teams do not allow refunds, but check your contract upon signing.
At RBA Dragons, the non-refundable deposit is $500 due at signing. Then, we provide a payment schedule. All tuitions must be paid in full prior to the start of the season.
