Jarrettsville Hawks U8 Travel Baseball Team

Updated Wednesday July 3, 2019 by Mike Freund.

Jarrettsville Hawks Travel Baseball will be holding tryouts in January 2020 at Harford Sports for our U8 2020 Spring Travel Team

 Games and tournaments for the Harford County Travel Baseball League take place on Saturdays and Sundays beginning in March/April 2020.  Our goal is to have enough interest within the Jarrettsville and surrounding communities to form two travel baseball teams at the U8 level for 2020.  The Jarrettsville Baseball Travel program is designed to offer the following benefits to our travel baseball players: 

  • We hold official tryouts in January finalizing our rosters in February 2020 to allow for our players to utilize the later summer months to concentrate on preparation for fall sports and vacation time with family.
  • Our players do not need to commit to playing recreation/in-house baseball.  They can if they elect at their choice which takes place during the week to not conflict with the travel baseball schedule on the weekends during the spring/summer months.
  • We hold fall workouts/games in a casual atmosphere in September & October on Sunday afternoons to allow our players to continue to concentrate on their fall sports and other family activities while continuing to get baseball reps at a casual pace.
  • We utilize our Jarrettsville Rec. Complex for travel baseball games and practices which offers the best field conditions of any Northern Harford County baseball facility.  Our many baseball volunteers help maintain our fields and  facility outside of what services the county provides which allows our complex to remain open when many across Harford County elect to close their facility.
  • We are a Harford County Travel Baseball tournament host site for the Spring & Summer Classics which generates a good amount of revenue that is reinvested into our Rec. & Travel Baseball programs to lower registration fees to our Jarrettsville players along with updating equipment.
  • Our program teaches players the basic fundamentals of the game, preparing kids to have fun for lifetime memories building friendships, sportsmanship and working together in a team environment.
  • Our coaching staff consists of coaches with many years of experience around travel baseball and other higher levels of baseball.
  • To be eligible to try out for this U8 2020 team, your son can't turn 9 years of age before May 1, 2020. What this means is we are seeking players who are 6, 7 and 8 years of age with a commitment and dedication for wanting to expand on their baseball playing career.
  • For anyone interested in starting a travel team in Jarrettsville at the U9 or older levels, the Jarrettsville Recreation Council board of directors is fully committed to supporting this effort of any volunteers that come forward in this capacity.

Further information with fall baseball activities and the Jarrettsville Baseball Travel program will be posted in coming weeks on the Jarrettsville Recreation Complex Facebook page (please share), jarrettsvillebaseball.com, jarrettsvillerec.org and messaged to our baseball families through Sports Illustrated.
