TRAVEL BASEBALL

St. Andrew’s ROCKS

St. Andrew’s Rocks Travel Baseball is a program established and administered by St. Andrew’s Parks and Playground. The goal is to facilitate the need for an advanced quality youth baseball program for West Ashley and the Surrounding Community. While creating competitive travel teams, our priority is to focus on the continual development, positive reinforcement, and overall well-being of our youth participants.

 

Tryouts/Evaluation are for the purpose of creating teams with players who are or have the potential to play at an advanced skill level and who are ready physically to take that next step. Teams are then formed by contracted travel baseball coaches.

 

Practices will be at St. Andrew’s youth baseball fields on 1095 Playground Road (West Ashley). Days/Times may vary and are offered one or two times per week including scrimmages.

 

Practice/training schedules will be determined by the Athletics Director and Head Coach. The season will include tournaments one/two times a month on weekends with a minimum of (3) tournaments per season. With the approval of St. Andrew’s Executive Director seasons for individual teams may be extended (on a case by case bases) and will include an additional registration fee. One team/league registration per season. Registered St. Andrew’s Travel Baseball Players are not permitted to register for any outside travel team or baseball leagues (outside of St. Andrew’s recreation leagues) during the travel season.
