Player tryouts for the GBA 2019 In-House Tournament Teams (IHTT) are this month! Some important dates and registration deadlines that are quickly approaching:
April 8th - Registration deadline for IHTT Managers
April 19th - Registration deadline for IHTT Player Tryouts
April 20th - IHTT Player Tryouts at Peck Farm baseball fields
GBA’s IHTT program aims to provide in-house players (non-travel) with opportunities to play more games & practices, and to do so at a higher level of competition. GBA has teams from 8U - 14U that participate in special, in-house player focused tournaments held by area baseball programs.
Players will get as many as 11 more practices and will go to 3 - 5 tournaments each year.
Teams are formed in April following an outdoor tryout and evaluation (the tryout is scheduled for Saturday, April 20th at Peck Farm fields - times are listed on the website calendar).
There is no cost to tryout, but we do charge $200 for those who make the team. New for this year, we will look to have a Tri-City (Geneva/Batavia/St. Charles) IHTT team for 11U to 14U. We are still working out details with the other towns and we will need to align costs which should be no more than $250. The fee will cover uniform (players will get their own jersey/hat/socks), field, umpire, and tournament expenses.
Tournaments are offered over the holidays of Memorial Day & 4th of July, and go into mid-late July.
If possible, our 9U team will host and run our Annual Stars and Stripes Tournament over the 4th of July weekend.
