If your child is interested in playing on a 12U team, please reach out to [email protected] to let us know.  We are not currently aware of enough players to field a team, but should we have interest - and a coach! - we will consider it. 12U age range would follow the same pattern as listed above.

Times for tryouts for each age group will be updated here shortly.


Please see below for some additional details and information about the UMYBSL Travel Program: 

 

  • Travel players must also participate on an in-house/ intramural UMYBSL team within the appropriate division for the 2020 spring season 

  • In-house /intramural games are on Saturdays and travel games are on Sundays

  • The travel season is 7-8 weeks with approximately 9 games; plus at least one playoff game

  • Half of the games are home and half are away. Away games are often in central NJ, within a one-hour drive 

  • Spring travel teams will have one practice /work out per week beginning in December or January at a local indoor facility. Indoor workouts offer professional instruction to enhance hitting and pitching skills.

  • During the spring, travel teams practice once or twice a week, at the discretion of the coaches. Travel players are expected to attend both spring travel practices and in-house / intramural practices.

  • Travel players cover the cost of playing on the team and the purchase of uniforms. More information on costs will be provided closer to the season. 

  • UMYBSL makes every effort to balance the league’s guiding principles of inclusion and delivering a quality baseball experience to players and families with the practicalities of fielding and managing a competitive travel team. Travel teams will be selected at the discretion of the coaches and it is not a guarantee that all players who tryout will make a travel team.
