Little Sluggers 8U (Ages 5-8)
Our youth travel programs provide players with the right resources to become better overall softball players with our top-level coaching, indoor training facility, quality practices throughout the year, competitive game and tournament schedule, and most importantly the opportunity to grow in all areas of their life. At Sluggers, we believe that player development is our number one priority for our players that play on our travel teams. Our coaches are competitive and do want to win games and tournaments, however, personal development will be put in front of any win.
Town Team Friendly
We here at Sluggers value players playing for their town and local teams and strongly support it. We will make every attempt to make sure to work around local town team schedules and regular-season games. It is important for our players to have pride in their town and where they are from. We understand that playing with your lifelong friends is an exciting time and Sluggers will support that. Essentially, Sluggers will be everyone’s second team.
The expectation that we have for our travel players and practices is that you attend as many practices as possible. We understand that players may have other sports going on (which we strongly encourage), family things, and other commitments but we would like to see all our players at practices when they can. Our weekly practices will provide our players with the instruction they need to progress as baseball players. Practices will take place on Sunday’s inside our facility until our teams are able to get outside onto fields. Practices will consist of individual skills, team skills, simulated games, and competitions. All of our coaching staff will be expected to run practices efficiently to get the most of the facility and players during their practice times.
We expect that our travel players and their families commit to the Sluggers’ practice and game schedule to their fullest. Once your town/local teams are done for the season we expect that our players will be present for all our tournaments and games. Where we will be holding tryouts for all our teams it is important for those players that agree to a roster spot to commit to practices and games.
As a member of one of our Travel teams, you receive many benefits that will enhance the experience of being a part of the Sluggers family. Every player will receive the following:
Excellent facility with excellent staff!! We joined Sluggers for the first time last year and it's probably the best decision we ever made for our son, who wants to play baseball for as long as he can!! Sluggers is allowing him that opportunity and we are beyond grateful for the wonderful coaching that goes on in Sluggers!! Excellence truly starts at Sluggers!
This is an excellent facility with an amazing team and family atmosphere! The focus on player health and development is awesome! The motivation and encouragement from the coaching staff make everyone work harder and better with each other!
The staff there is super knowledgeable and friendly. Can't wait to go again!
Sluggers is AWESOME! My son loves it there and has grown so much as a player. Great instruction, fair prices, and an excellent year-round facility. If your child loves baseball or softball, do yourself a favor and visit Sluggers!
