We will be entering a Travel Team in the British Baseball Federation (BBF) this spring to compete against other teams/players between the ages of 10 to 13 years old (Bronco Southern Division).
We are scheduled to play games starting in mid April through the first week in June. Teams we will compete against are:
- Herts All Stars (tentatively Sat., 21st April away)
- Bracknell Wildfire (Sat., 5th May home)
- LYBL (Sat., 12th May away)
- London Mets (Sat., 19th May home)
- Forest Glade (Sat., 26th May home)
- Essex Atoms (Sat., 2nd June away)
Start times: 11:00 for the first game of a doubleheader.
All home games will be played at Wormwood Scrubs and all games are tentatively scheduled to be doubleheaders. For away games parents will have to arrange transportation to and from the games. The maximum travel distance for teams denoted above (excluding traffic from the Scrubs) is less or approximately 1.5 hours away on the motorway.
The Travel Team will have their own separate uniform which will be assigned by LondonSports.com and our colours will be orange and black.
Youths (boys and girls between the ages 10 to 13 years old) must try out (e.g., weekend of 24th/25th March) and be assessed from a pool of players that are registered to play in our League only.
NOTE: The tryouts for the Travel Team are separate than the evaluations held for our regular season players team placement on the 17th March.
Our League (LondonSports.com) has made allowances in their schedule to accommodate players on the Travel Team in competing on Saturday's and still playing their regularly assigned teams on Sunday.
Practise for the Travel Team will vary from your regularly scheduled LondonSports.com teams.
Further, we have been asked and are considering entering other tournaments or play games against teams from surrounding areas and abroad.
To tryout you must first register your youth online with your unique login and password from our LondonSports.com website (at the top of the page). That is, under the parents link click the link that denotes "Clinic, Evals, Travel Team" then register your son and/or daughter to tryout.
We would appreciate everyone's support for the Travel Team even if your son and daughter will not try out, as its our first time competing in the BBF. Moreover, our Travel Team will be representing not just select players that are 10 - 13 years old, but all our Leagues players, parents, volunteers and commissioners that have made LondonSports.com so special for over 25 years! So thank you in advance for your support.
