In addition to our recreation programs, SCYB&GS also has a great travel program for our older players. Any player with any interest in our travel programs will need to attend their appropriate tryout. Tryouts are open to ALL players that meet the age requirements and are registered for recreation ball. Registration is available at http://www.southcolonieball.org/registration/. Player age is determined by their age as of May 1, 2018 for Baseball and Dec. 31, 2017 for softball. Tryouts are open, FAIR and great competitive experience for players. Even if you would just like to see what the programs are about, come join us, let your players have some fun and ask lots of questions to our wonderful coaches! Attendance at multiple sessions is more than welcome if unsure what level your child would like to play provided they meet the age requirements.
See Baseball and Softball tabs on the website for additional information.
