8U Travel Team Tryouts
EMW is hosting 8 and under travel team tryouts on Wednesday, May 30th from 6pm-8pm. We will be conducting tryouts on the boys/girls rookie diamond.
To be eligible, your son must not turn 9 years of age before May 1st, 2018.
The 8U program is a machine pitch game, played on field dimensions like our Minor Boys diamond which is 60' bases and a 46' pitching mound.
The season will run through the first week in August, and will include roughly 6-8 practices and 6-8 games. While it's a higher level of competition then the House League, our long range goal is to determine if the travel program is something your son would like to continue with in future years. At season's end, we will have the tryouts for next year's 9U team.
If your son would like to come to the tryouts, kindly call/txt (Jon) at 716-430-6088 or email at email@example.com.
Pre-registering is a great help to me and much appreciated.
Please wear EMW house league uniforms to tryouts.
