A few notes:

1.     There is no cost to try out.

2.     You must pre-register via email at oyboshkosh@gmail.com. Please include your child’s name, DOB, current grade and which age group they plan to try out for. Pre-registration helps OYB better plan for the tryout and makes it easier to notify everyone of changes due to weather or unforeseen circumstances. 

3.     Please plan to arrive approximately 15 minutes before the scheduled tryout time for warm up throwing and stretching.

 

If your child can not attend the tryout date or time selected for his designated age group, please notify us at oyboshkosh@gmail.com to make alternate arrangements and be considered for a travel team.   

 

 

Ideally, OYB would like to have two teams at each age level.

·       Travel teams typically practice twice a week throughout the summer in addition to weekend tournaments.

·       Tournaments are generally within approximately an one hour drive of Oshkosh however, occasionally some tournaments may require a greater travel distance.

·       The number of tournaments a team plays in is decided by the teams’ head coach. There may be some flexibility in the number of tournaments a player chooses to participate in.  

 

  

 

All kids will be evaluated over a variety of skills and additional emphasis will be placed on HUSTLE. 

 

All kids should bring a glove, hat, helmet, baseball shoes or cleats, water or drink and anything else they may need.  All kids are responsible for their own equipment and OYB shall not be liable for any lost, stolen or misplaced equipment.  Please have your child’s name on all equipment to ease in relocating any misplaced items.

 

Lastly, the Travel program is looking for and in need of coaches.  OYB does not decide how many travel teams it will have at any age level until after the tryouts.  If you are interested in coaching in the Travel program in 2020, please notify us at the email address listed herein.  Notification of interest does not guarantee that you will coach as the OYB board will assign coaches at all levels sometime this fall. 

 

 

If you have any questions about the travel program in general please contact us at oyboshkosh@gmail.com

 

Sincerely,

Oshkosh Youth Baseball
