2020 WESTERN 9U TOURNAMENT TEAM
Posted May 1, 2015

OVERVIEW:

The Western 9U Tournament Team is designed to introduce players ages 8 and 9 to competitive tournament baseball.

This is a highly developmental program which prepares players for eventual participation on a Duluth 709 Tournament Team at ages 10 and up. Players will experience a higher level of competition as well as opportunities to develop confidence and teamwork while representing Western against teams from other area communities.

This level emphasizes developing strong fundamental skills and does require a stronger time commitment from players and families than regular season play.

 

ELIGIBILITY: Players with birthdates between 5/1/10 and 4/30/12 are eligible to participate.

 

EVALUATIONS/TEAM SELECTION:

Any players interested in participating on the Western 9U Tournament Team MUST attend at least one of the skill evaluation sessions.

Evaluations will be held in April. Dates and times are TBA. More information will be shared as it becomes available.
