2020 Summer Travel Baseball: U8-U16

Ages 8-16 Travel Summer Baseball

Needham Baseball provides a highly competitive summer travel baseball program for players in the U8 - U16 age groups.  These teams are for dedicated baseball players.  The program stresses skill development and competition. 

Travel Season

The summer starts in late June and extends in to August. Teams that make the playoffs could play in to the middle of August. 

Player Expectations

Players will be expected to attend practices, regular season games, playoffs and possible tournaments. Parents should not consider this program if their player goes to overnight camp in July.  Except for tournaments and playoffs, the teams typically do not play on weekends during the summer.  The high level of commitment is necessary to be able to field teams and make our program successful.

Travel Teams

Teams at U8 will be playing the Friendship League.  The Friendship League does not have tiers and our teams will be as balanced as possible. Friendship League teams typically play two games per week and all teams qualify for playoffs. 

Teams from U9 through U12 will compete in the Suburban Youth Baseball League.  There will be an “A” team and a “B” team at each age level.  Teams at the age levels should expect to play at least one weekend tournament. 

League placement and the number of team at the U13 - U16 will depend on registration numbers. 

Team Size and Selection

There will be a maximum of 12 players on an A team and 13 on a B team.  Players may be cut if registration numbers at a particular age group are such that it is not possible to field a team of 12 or 13 players.  If a player is cut or asked to be an alternate, refunds for the registration fee will be provided.  Fortunately, we have been able to accommodate all players who registered on time the last few years. 

U8: All players will attend an evaluation in the spring. This combined with feedback from spring coaches will be used to create balanced teams. 

U9 and U10:  There will be a evaluation in the spring for players who wish to be considered for the A teams. This combined with feedback from spring coaches and past evaluation data will be used to determine the A team roster. 

U11 and U12:  Teams will be selected based on feedback from spring coaches as well as past tryout and evaluation data. There won't be a formal tryout for these age groups.

U13 - U16: Number of teams and roster sizes will depend on registration numbers. Please note that the age classification at these levels may differ from the Little League Age Chart below. 

 

Coaches

Any spring coaches who want to be considered to manage a summer team should contact the Director of Summer Baseball. All Needham Summer coaches are required to attend Positive Coaches Alliance (PCA) workshops and must be approved by the Board of Directors. 

For questions, please contact summer director Victor Saratella   vsaratella@gmail.com
