Fall Tryouts for 2013 NTTB Summer Travel Program

This past year the Glencoe Baseball Association (GBA) and the Kenilworth-Winnetka Baseball Association (KWBA) joined forces to create the New Trier Travel Baseball Program (NTTB).  Over the last year, players from both the GBA and KWBA house leagues participated in winter workouts, spring workouts, and, ultimately, played together as the NTTB Bulldogs, on teams managed by highly experienced coaches, against rival baseball communities.  In light of the overwhelming success of the NTTB this past year (both on and off the field), we are pleased to announce the continuation of the NTTB for the 2013 baseball season.

Similar to last year, tryouts for both GBA and KWBA players will be held in the fall for 10, 11 and 12 year olds to allow our players to start working together earlier and to enable you to plan your summer well in advance.  Tryouts for the 8 & 9 year olds will continue to be held in the spring.

If you missed the October 14 informational meeting, here is a copy of the presentation:  NTTB Overview 2012-13.pdf

Tryout schedule:

10 year olds:  Saturday & Sunday, October 20 and 21, 4pm to 6pm

11 year olds:  Saturday & Sunday, October 27 and 28, 4pm to 6pm

12 year olds:  Saturday & Sunday, November 3 and 4, 4pm to 6pm

Tryouts will be held at the Northfield Park District (on Willow Rd.) fields. Indoor backup plan is the Takiff Center (on Green Bay Rd.) in Glencoe.

At the Fall tryouts, players will be selected to participate in the NTTB program and participate in Winter Workouts and Spring Workouts, but final team placement for all travel teams will occur in the spring, after winter workouts have concluded.  The fee is $15 to attend the tryout.
