The Brewster Crush travel baseball team is excited to announce the continued growth of the BREWSTER CRUSH travel baseball program. The Program strives to provide players seeking a higher level of competition an opportunity to play against some of the top local competition, while focusing on developing strong fundamentals, teamwork, and a sense of community at a reasonable cost. Our view is that Brewster players should not have to leave the community to join a private club and spend thousands of dollars to get a top tier baseball experience and reach their maximum potential.
Many families have experienced the opportunity of playing travel baseball and many more Little Leaguers have expressed an interest in playing local travel ball within this age group.
One of the primary goals has been raising interest in this sport and providing opportunities. If local interest is great enough, which we hope and believe it will be, it is likely a two Brewster Crush 9U’s and an 8U team will be formed and prepared to compete.
Tryouts will be held at a later date TBD; travel baseball is different than recreation league baseball, therefore tryouts are required.
This team is for those interested in a competitive atmosphere that will remain focused on fun and baseball fundamentals. Players selected for the team will travel to other communities for games as part of the GHVBL. Below is the information that we have at this time. We are presenting this to you so that you can determine if this is something your child and you as a parent would like to pursue.
COMMITMENT: Being on a youth local travel team requires a commitment of both athlete and parent/family. This will include a commitment of both time and money. The commitment to this team is more than to a recreational team and carries higher expectations. Players and parents must also be committed to skill development as the team will be competing against teams selected from other communities.
TRYOUTS: Players will be evaluated on all baseball skills such as hitting, throwing, fielding, base running, as well as behavior and coach-ability.
COMPETITIVENESS: This team will be competitive in nature and thus will be playing to win games. However, at this age there will be a significant emphasis placed on fun and skill development but there are no guarantees on playing time or positions played. Playing time, batting order, fielding positions, etc. will be at the sole discretion of coaches.
EXPECTATIONS: Those players selected for the team will be expected to make practices and attend the games and playoffs. Please consider these expectations before attending the tryout. If a player is unable to attend they must notify the coaches well in advance so coaches can ensure they can field a team.
