Summer Travel Info

While our Spring season is still underway, it’s already May and we have to start making summer plans! If your son or daughter is interested in continuing to play baseball at a competitive level, it is time to plan for the commitment to summer travel baseball. Please visit www.gbll.org and register your player(s) by clicking the green “Summer Travel” button on the top right.

Summer Travel Objectives:

·         Offer a Competitive Baseball program that enables each District and Travel Baseball player to attain maximum skills development, while having lots of fun.

·         Place players at the appropriate District and Travel team level determined by the player’s baseball skill and ability through independent evaluations along with Player Agent’s and President’s input

·         Provide opportunities for capable and committed players to improve themselves through excellent coaching and very strong competition.

·         Compete against teams from other municipalities in district play, area leagues and tournaments, as well as some out-of-region, high-profile tournaments (older age groups).

·         Provide a positive learning experience to enhance a player's overall personal development.   
  

Travel Team Registration, Evaluation, and Placement:
Travel player evaluations will be conducted by experienced and independent evaluators. These player evaluations determine the competitive level at which each prospective Travel player will participate. Input from the League’s coaches will be a component of the evaluation process. Each player is expected to play on the team for which he/she qualified.


Frequent schedule changes are to be expected due to weather and changing dates in leagues and tournaments, so players and parents must plan to be flexible. Prompt and regular attendance is a must for all Travel players. Parents must plan summer vacations to avoid conflict with practices and games.

 

Eligibility and Details:

 

For those at the 10U level and above there are 2 separate programs in the Summer that a player may try out for:

-The Little League All-Star District Team

-The Summer Travel Team(s) A-Level or B-Level

 

All Players who played in in the GBLL Spring Rec program are eligible for the Summer Travel Team(s).

Warren, Green Brook and North Plainfield players who participated in Spring Rec are eligible to participate on the Little League All-Star District Team.

 

Players may elect to participate on the All Star District Team, the Summer Travel Team or Both. (Election must be made prior to tryouts)

A B-Level Travel Team may be established at each level if sufficient interest from players and coaches exists

 

At the 8U and 9U Level, there is no All-Star District Team just Summer Travel

 

Players will try out with their league age group. Player may also try out with an older age group if they wish to "play up" at an older level. Age is defined as the player’s age on May 1st of that year. (I.e. A girl or boy born on 5/2/2005 is league age nine, and eligible to try out for the 9U or older team... Each team is designated with the maximum league age)

 

Summer baseball is extremely competitive, and is intended for players interested in playing at a more competitive level than our Rec program.

 

Players must commit to attendance at all games and practices. (It is recommended that no vacations be scheduled for players during the months of June and July)

 

Player selections will be based on the resulting evaluation and positional roster availability. Players will be evaluated at various positions (1B, 2B, SS, 3B, C, P, OF)

All players not selected for the District or Travel A team may elect to play on the B team subject to sufficient interest and coaching.

 

The cost for Summer Baseball which includes uniform costs is determined by each manager. There is no reduction in fee for players electing to participate in only the District team or only on the Travel Team


The Summer Travel Baseball Fees are approximately $200 per child plus a shack bond. Please note, that some Travel teams, in a particular age group, may elect to participate in tournaments that could result in additional participation fees to offset the higher expenses associated with these other venues. There will be no refund of the basic Travel Baseball registration fee for any other reason than not having enough players and managers to form complete teams.

 

No Player is guaranteed playing time or at bats during either the District Tournament or Travel Season. Rules for playing time and substitutions will be followed as dictated by Little League or the sponsoring organizations of the Travel League/Tournaments.

 

If sufficient participation allows for the establishment of a B Team, in consideration of the developmental nature of such a team, all players will receive equitable playing time and at bats on the B Team.

 

No Player is guaranteed to play any specific position during either the District Tournament or  A Travel Season. Coaches will endeavor to field the team, lineup, and defensive positions that, in their estimation will afford the team the best opportunity to win.

 

Sportsmanship and teamwork are the two cornerstones of Green Brook baseball. There will be zero tolerance for poor sportsmanship or degrading a fellow team mate. This applies both to players and parents.

 

 

All times will be announced close to the tryout date to those that have registered

 

Managers and Coaches:
Managers for District and Travel teams will be selected by the GBLL Board and consideration will be given to coaching skills, experience and the ability to foster a positive team experience. In addition, managers and coaches must exhibit good sportsmanship and represent Green Brook LL and the communities of Green Brook Township in a highly civil and supportive manner when competing at home and in other area communities.  The Managers, from the previous years, will continue to support the club based on their commitment to the program unless they opt out or they did not adhere to the league  standards.  If a candidate wants to be considered, he or she must contact the player agent prior to selecting a team.  

 

For additional questions, please contact the PLAYER AGENT
