Summer Tournament Teams

Mount Airy Stars
2022 Tournament Team Tryouts

Each year Mt. Airy Baseball enters teams in post-season summer tournaments.  This year we will
field teams for players ages 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12. The tournament team experience is designed to
provide an opportunity for our more competitive and committed players to experience baseball at
a higher level of competition than the in-house league. Tournament teams will likely play in 2-4
scrimmage games, practice 10-12 times, and play in 3-4 summer tournaments between June 20
and July 30.  Games and practices will not conflict with our in-house Mt. Airy Baseball
League.

Pre-registration for Tryouts:  Any player who is interested in trying out must register in
advance by sending an email to mtairystars@gmail.com.  The email must indicate the
player’s name and birth date.  This pre-registration will provide important information
regarding the interest level at each age group and will allow coaches to appropriately
organize and run the tryout sessions.

Pre-registration one week prior to the tryout is mandatory for all interested players.
For the tournament teams, the age groups are defined as follows:

Birthdays from May 1st 2013 – April 30th 2014 = 8 year-olds (8U)
Birthdays from May 1st 2012 – April 30th 2013 = 9 year-olds (9U)
Birthdays from May 1st 2011 – April 30th 2012 = 10 year-olds (10U)
Birthdays from May 1st 2010 – April 30th 2011 = 11 year-olds (11U)
Birthdays from May 1st 2009 – April 30th 2010 = 12 year-olds (12U)

The age ranges for each level are strictly enforced by the tournaments that we enter and,
therefore, all players for a particular team must have a birthday that falls within the appropriate
date range, with the exception of advanced 7 year-old players trying out for the 8U team.

Tryouts will be held as follows:

8U: Saturdays 4/23 and 4/30, 6:00 at Mt Airy Blue Field
9U: Saturdays 4/9 and 4/16, 4:30 at Leeds Small Field
10U: Saturdays 4/9 and 4/16, 3:45 at Finley Rec. Center
11U: Sundays 4/3 and 4/10, 6:00 at Pleasant Playground Field
12U: Sundays 4/3 and 4/10, 4:00 at Pleasant Playground Field

No player will be excluded for financial reasons. No child is ever denied participation in any
MAB program for inability to pay a fee. We encourage anyone interested to try out. Players will
be selected for teams based on ability and availability.

Eligibility:
1. All players must participate in the Mt. Airy Baseball “in house” league.
2. All players interested in participating must come to at least one tryout; attendance at both
tryouts is strongly recommended.  Coaches will be assessing different skills at each
session.
3. All players must be available for at least 4 of the 6 weeks of the summer tournament
season, June 20 – July 30.
