Whitpain Travel Baseball
7U through 13U travel program for Whitpain Baseball players
About the Program
In addition to its intramural league, Whitpain Baseball hosts travel and tournament teams for divisions 7U and up. Teams play in tournaments throughout the region and in venues as exciting as the Cal Ripken complex in Aberdeen Maryland or Hershey, PA.
This program competes April through July, beginning in very competitive spring travel leagues followed by summer tournaments that culminate with the Cal Ripken District Tournament for the chance to win States!
Travel is a great experience for players and families, proving an outlet for competitive sports and the development of great friendships. For more information, contact committee chair Jim Viscanti.
About Team Tryouts
Tryouts for all divisions take place throughout the year to prepare for spring travel leagues. Information will be posted and shared electronically as each tryout is schedule. The age cutoff for travel teams is May 1, meaning your child’s age on April 30 is their baseball age.
Players must participate in our intramural baseball league to be eligible for a travel or tournament team. See below for additional eligibility requirements.
Travel Team tryout opportunities will be posted below. All players are expected to register in advance. Specific details for each tryout will be emailed to participating players.
9U thru 12U TRYOUTS
7U & 8U TRYOUTS
For players born between May 1, 2015 and April 30, 2016 (8U) and May 1, 2016 and April 30, 2017 (7U), tryouts will be held in the spring after the in-house season has started. Contact WRA Baseball at email@example.com with any questions.
Whitpain's Travel Baseball program hosts winter workouts focusing on skill development. Professional coaches local to our area and former Division 1 players from our program assist.
Travel Baseball Player Eligiblity
Athletes who play for a WRA travel baseball team must meet requirement A and either B, C, or D below:
*We recognize that sometimes athletes live in an area that does not have a Cal Ripken program. Those athletes are welcome to try out for our travel teams, although they should be aware that the priority, when filling out rosters, will be given to athletes who live, or attend school, within the WRA boundaries.
The decision to roster a player who does not meet the residency/school requirement above is made at the discretion of the coach, only with prior approval from the WRA Baseball Committee Chair or VP of Operations.
Tournament schedules will be posted here once released.
Whitpain possesses one of the newest and most complete baseball complexes in the area with five fields, batting cages, bullpens, warm up areas, picnic areas and concessions. Games for all divisions are primarily played at Wentz Run Park and PECO Field (1120 N Wales Road).
