BBSA TRAVEL TEAMS: 2018 – 2019 Season

The BBSA Travel Teams are competitive tournament teams, with 4 age groups: U10s, U12s, U14s, and U19s.  Teams are competitive and kids from all over Bangkok are eligible.

Players selected for these teams are required to participate in local and overseas tournaments, as well as attending practices each week. Registration in the Bangkok Baseball and Softball Association (BBSA) Divisional Program is also required, but the commitment to play on these teams means your child must attend any practices, scrimmage games and/or tournaments, over and above participation in the Divisional Programs.

Parents: Participation is a significant commitment. Players will practice at least twice week, and must commit to playing in other overseas tournaments, depending on invitations received, generally 3-4 a season.

School absences: Historically, schools have granted excused absences to student-athletes participating in the Travel Program, with students making up work upon return (however, this is not guaranteed).

AGE GROUPS:

U10s – cannot be 11 before 11 January, 2019
U12s – cannot be 13 before 31 March, 2019
