How to Choose a Travel Baseball Team For Your Child

Parenting is full of decisions on how best to support your child. Once you’ve identified a passion or a gift in your kid, it’s time to help them grow it! Youth sports are a fantastic way to celebrate and strengthen many positive traits during the critical pre-teen and teen years.

Travel baseball, in particular, involves dedication, perseverance, hard work, and focus, and it can mean a significant boost to your child’s college future. When choosing a travel baseball team where your child can grow their skills and build teamwork, it’s important to weigh several important factors.

Extra Coaching

Travel teams can be formed by an organization, or by parents or other adults. When choosing your team, ensure that the coaching style provides adequate rigor for your child as he works to improve. Talk with other families from the team if possible to see how their experience has stacked up to expectations. Your child will be playing baseball at an elite level, and it’s important to know that there will be an effective foundation in place.

Time Commitment

Ask about the range that you and your child will be required to travel. Though every travel team requires a significant time commitment, where you and the teams are located will have an impact on your travel time as well as game and practice time. Make sure to ask all questions up front so you are adequately prepared.

Winning Rate

Though playing isn’t all about winning, you’ll want to make sure that the team you join has an outstanding reputation that demonstrates a commitment to excellence. If you and your child will be dedicating time and money to playing for a travel team, know that the team is worth your trust. As an example, the Schaumburg Seminoles has been recognized as one of the top programs in the country. The Seminoles have won 4 National Championships, 6 National Championship appearances, and 14 State Titles over the last 20 seasons.
