For those interested in participating in travel baseball at this level, I wanted to announce that the baseball board overwhelmingly voted to align our travel program with the high schools, starting at 7U and 8U for the 2012 season. Until the past board meeting, the "split" as it is often referred, began at the 5th grade level. What we have found, there is frustration at aligning with the high schools after teams have (for the most part) been able to play together from 7U to 10U and then have to separate. By aligning at 7U, the opportunity exists for teams to develop together without ever having to divide when they are older.
The concept of aligning with the high schools all the way through our travel program has been in discussion for years. The structure of our 7U and 8U program will consist of a Tigers team, a Royals team and a Cats team as our third travel team, if there are enough qualified athletes whom desire to participate. We are excited for upcoming years of success for all whom participate in the Fishers-HSE Youth Baseball program.
7U Travel Tryouts will place in the Spring of 2013!
