Centennial Baseball Club Travel Team Information

Travel baseball is played in the spring and offers the opportunity to play against teams from other local communities. Travel baseball represents a more challenging and advanced level of play in comparison to the in-house program. It is important to understand that tryouts will be held and not all players will be selected to a team.

For players who are selected to a team, there is a travel fee in addition to the typical in-house fee to cover uniforms, umpires and other program costs. While travel baseball is an excellent opportunity for developing young players to enhance their skills and compete at a higher level of play, it does require a significant commitment by both players and parents. All players who participate in the travel program are also required to play in-house baseball. The typical week will include 2 travel games (Friday evening and Sunday afternoon), 1 in-house game (Saturday), and one or more practices resulting in at least 4 days of baseball each week of the season (March through June).

What is Travel Baseball?

Summary - Travel Baseball is played during the Spring, as is in-house baseball, except the games are on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons, usually starting the first week of April and ending by the last week of June. When playing travel baseball your son must also play in-house baseball. Thus, your son, if selected, would play on 2 teams in the Spring, his in house team, and the travel team. The purpose of the Travel team is to offer a more challenging level of baseball than can be seen in the in-house league. The intention of the Travel League is to have many players with similar talent levels competing with each other on a weekly basis. Centennial Baseball Club Travel Teams play in the Suburban Travel Baseball League against their counterparts from surrounding area teams. Playing travel baseball is an excellent opportunity to further develop the talents of all the boys on the team.

Player and Parent Commitment - Playing travel and tournament baseball will require a commitment by not only the players, but also the parents. As mentioned above, the season runs concurrently with the in-house season. With that said, by mid April, the Travel team players will play Friday and Sunday, plus an in-house game on Saturday and at least one weekday practice, which will result in at least four days of baseball per week for your son. 

Tryouts - Players voluntarily register for Centennial Baseball Club Travel Teams. Tryouts are held and not all players will make the team. This is a reality that all parents and players MUST understand. There is no guarantee that your child will be selected to be on a Travel Team Roster.

Fees - Once on the team roster, there is a separate fee per player. This fee covers uniforms, insurance, umpires, and equipment. 

Equipment - Each player is responsible to obtain the following personal equipment and bring it with him to each practice/game: 

  1. USA-stamped bat
  2. batting gloves
  3. baseball glove
  4. heartgard/chest protector/sternum shirt
  5. athletic cup
  6. batting helmet
