TWICTB Notes

This Week in Cougar Travel Baseball


Overview

The philosophy of the Vernon Hills Community Baseball and Softball Program is to increase the players' confidence and self-esteem; help them develop an understanding of the value of teamwork, honesty, courage, respect for authority and good sportsmanship; and maximize the potential of each player's skill and knowledge of the games of baseball and softball.

Tryout Update for 2022 Season

Below is the Tryout Schedule for the 2022 Travel Baseball season. The registration system is open and can be found here.  Please register no later than 7/15/21.  Please register by 7/11/21 to ensure your player gets his requested shirt size.  If your player is unable to attend due to being out of town, please contact Jason Glassman at travel_baseball@vhcbs.com ASAP to arrange for an alternate tryout date.  The alternate tryout will be a drill evaluation only. The Saturday drill evaluation (Sunday for 8U) is mandatory and the Sunday scrimmage evaluation is highly encouraged for players to demonstrate their abilities during simulated game play scenarios but is not mandatory. In case of rain, we are holding Monday and Tuesday as make up dates.  Those dates are rain dates only and will NOT be the alternate tryout date if your player is unable to attend 7/24-25.  The Saturday times do not conflict with LSFBL playoffs at any level.  For any of our teams that are in the LSFBL Championship game on Sunday we will arrange an alternate scrimmage opportunity for those players only.  

 

***Please note that all age levels listed are for the 2022 age level. If your player is playing 10U this summer, they will be trying out for 11U during these tryouts. ***

 

All Tryouts will be held at the Vernon Hills Athletic Complex (VHAC) on fields 1-4.
