Please note that our program operates with a grade based approach. Meaning we would like your player to try out with their grade. Although this is the standard model there may be a situation where we will ask your player to play with their age group vs grade. This request may be made to avoid cutting players or to ensure your player is positioned for success. In addition you or your player may request to play above or below their grade. To do this please send an email to stlouisparkbaseball@gmail.com and the request will be reviewed by our board. 

2021 Season Plan, Registration, and Tryouts

We do not yet have clarity on the timing and details of 2021 season. Therefore, we are going to handle registration and tryouts differently. Below is a summary and action you and your player need to take if they plan to play in 2021. 

  1. Click Here to register your player for our 2020 fall tryout and pre tryout clinics. This tryout will be used as a key data point in building teams for the 2021 season. Your player must be registered to attend and there is no fee to register or attend. 
  2. Have your player attend the pre tryout clinics for the extra work or to get your player used to the bigger field. They will be held on 3 consecutive Saturdays (8/22, 8/29, 9/5) from 10am and 12pm. 13U will be on Paul Frank and 14/15U on Keller on 8/22 and then Carlson on 8/29 and 9/5.  
  3. Attend at least one day of the 2020 fall tryouts which will be held on Saturday September 12th between 10 am to 2 pm and Sunday September 13th from 12 pm to 4 pm. We have the following Monday and Tuesday reserved for rain outs or make ups if needed. 13U will be on Paul Frank and 14/15U on Keller. Group assignments and specific times will be communicated prior to the tryout. 
  4. Once we learn more about how the 2021 season will look, we will establish a formal 2021 season registration, communicate the plan and set up winter / spring workouts. We also plan to hold a spring tryout. Data from the 2020 season, coach feedback, our fall tryouts, and the spring tryout will be used to finalize 2021 teams.  

Please note that St Louis Park Traveling Baseball only organizes baseball teams for 13 to 15 year old baseball players living in St Louis Park or attending a St Louis Park Public School. 

Attached below is a overview document for parents of players who have graduated out of our Little League program and will be playing St Louis Park Traveling Baseball in 2021.  Normally we hold a incoming 13U player and parent meeting but the COVID 19 protocols prevent this. 

If you have any questions about the above or attached information please email stlouisparkbaseball@gmail.com.

Board Meetings and Elections

Our board continues to meet virtually on the third Sunday of each month at 7 pm. On Sunday October 18th we will be holding elections for all positions. 

If you are interested in joining the board or attending a meeting please email stlouisparkbaseball@gmail.com.
