Here is some general information about our travel program:
Our travel program competes in the Cal Ripken tournament trail as well as the Greater Hudson Valley Baseball League. We generally have teams at the 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U and 12U levels. Tryouts for the travel teams at the 9U - 12U level generally take place in the middle of December, with winter workouts starting in mid to late January. The 8U team holds tryouts during the first few weeks of the spring in-house season. Our 8U team either participates in the Friendship Tournament (machine pitch) or the Greater Hudson Valley Baseball League, as well as the Cal Ripken tournament trail.
The registration fee for our travel program is about $275 for 8U, and about $625 for 9U-12U. The 9U-12U registration fee includes winter workouts at Coastal Athletics and those teams generally play more total games, which costs the league more money, resulting in a higher registration fee.
More detailed information regarding dates, times, schedule, and costs will be communicated by the manager of each team after the team has been selected.
There is no cost to tryout for a team. Trying out for a team does not guarantee a spot on a team. All roster spots are earned and determined by the coaching staff of each team every year.
Registration for head coach interviews and player tryouts is MANDATORY. Click the link above to register today! Head Travel Coach interview registration will remain open until Sunday, November 27. Player tryout registrations will remain open until Friday, December 16 (9U player tryout registration will close on Friday 12/9).
Our league's mission is to create an environment where children can learn fundamental baseball skills and develop a lifelong love for the game.
Our program serves boys and girls from 4 to 12 years old. Emphasis is placed on learning fundamental skills, sportsmanship and respect for the rules of the game. All our coaches undergo yearly background screening, participate in coaching clinics and work with local training facilities to enhance their skills. Players participate in bi-weekly practices and 2 -3 games per week.
Our vision is to continue to provide a best in class baseball experience for all our players and families. To achieve this goal we have partnered with local trainers and experienced coaches & players to capitalize on the latest skill drills and techniques. We are committed to enhancing our community involvement though events like our Danbury Youth Baseball day, volunteer programs and ongoing college scholarship program.
Please visit us at 3 Memorial Drive Danbury, CT and see what we have to offer.
What equipment does my child need to play baseball?
We have a saying at Danbury Youth Baseball: All you need is a glove and a good attitude. The truth is, you’ll need a few other things as well. All players must have a baseball glove, a baseball bat, a baseball batting helmet, grey baseball pants, a protective cup, and molded rubber cleats (gym shoes/sneakers are acceptable for Single A (ages 4 - 6)). Danbury Youth Baseball will provide all players with a jersey, a hat and a pair of baseball socks. Children should also bring water to all games and practices.
When does the season start?
Our spring season runs from early April through early June and our fall season runs from early September though late October. The exact start date for the spring season depends largely on the weather and field conditions following the winter.
How much does registration cost for the spring and/or fall season?
A Division (ages 4-6): $50
AA Division (ages 7&8): $100
AAA Division (ages 9&10): $150
