Tryout for the new Johnson Ferry 13U Travel Baseball team, a competitive Majors team. This is not a recreational team, but a performance baseball team striving to play at the highest possible level for this age group. At the same time we will be looking to develop Christ-like character, morals, and a determined work ethic. We want to model the importance of giving back to their communities and spending time with family. We also teach quality over quantity in the practices and tournaments, thus not overloading the schedule with tournaments. We highly value time together as families and the importance of that priority in your child's life.
For the fall season, we emphasize the importance of boys playing other sports and give them the ability to do so.
The mission of this team is to teach, train, and develop players in order to help them reach their potential in both baseball and life. We do this in a fun, competitive, and focused baseball environment that seeks to promote Christ-like character and integrity in all that we do.
After tryouts, our office will contact families to confirm whether or not players made the team. There is a cut off for the roster.
If your player wants an opportunity to make the team, he must attend tryouts.
