HAC Competitive Baseball Program

COMPETITIVE BASEBALL PROGRAM

 

      The Howland Athletic Club will be offering the option for players to play Travel baseball in addition to playing on one of our regular season recreational teams.  Our organization recognizes that some players seek a more competitive level of baseball at an affordable price.  This leaves few options to choose that are not profit based or run by independent coaches.   The Travel Baseball Program will cost $130 per player in addition to the normal HAC registration fees.   Howland Travel Baseball will give players the same experience as playing on any other travel team without the huge costs (costs typically incurred are $800 and up per child.)  This cost is used primarily for field rental, equipment, insurance, and profit.  HAC is a non-profit organization and all the fees collected for the Travel Baseball Program will be used to support the Travel Baseball Program.  The HAC has all of the resources needed already in place to support travel baseball.

 This program will coincide but not interfere with the HAC recreational divisions.  This combination will provide more games and more playing time per player then most independent travel team can realistically provide.  Travel teams will be drawn from players in our existing baseball divisions (Pinto (6-8), Mustang (9-10), & Bronco (11-12)).  The amount of teams per division will be determined by the amount of players registered for this program.  The Travel Baseball Program is designed for players seeking more competition.  These teams will play to win which you should consider carefully before enrolling your player.
  
Teams will be issued a separate Travel uniform and can anticipate playing in 1-3 competitive tournaments and possible weekly Saturday or Sunday play depending on the availability of leagues for each age group.  This is in addition to playing 3-4 HAC recreational games per week.  Some teams may want to play more or less so teams will have the ability to adjust their amount of play .

Whenever possible teams will be formed in each division: 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, & 12U

There is no guarantee of playing time in this competitive division.
