By CBA Travel Director 07/05/2024, 9:15am CDT

The Chaska Baseball Association is excited to share more details for the upcoming 9U-12U Travel tryouts to announce teams for the 2025 season. As previously announced, the 9U-12U Tryouts will take place this year over one weekend, Saturday and Sunday, August 17th and 18th at Chaska Community Park. The following will be the schedule for Tryouts:

Saturday August 17th
9U - 9am-10:15am
10U - 10:15am-11:30am
11U - 11:45am-1pm
12U - 1pm-2:15pm

Sunday August 18th:

11U - 10:15am-11:30am
10U - 11:45am-1pm
9U - 1pm-2:15pm

Please note that the starting times may adjust slightly. This is all dependent on the number of registered players. Registration will open soon!

IMPORTANT: In order to be considered for a Metro Travel team for the 2025 season, a player must attend the tryouts and attending both tryout dates on Saturday and Sunday August 17th and 18th is expected. Seeing players on both dates allows the evaluators to provide 2 days worth of scores for each player.

Due to the tryouts occurring over a single weekend in 2024, we know that families may have already set up family vacations or are unable to attend both tryout dates over the weekend; therefore, we are providing a Tryout Make-up Date on Wednesday, August 28th from 5pm-8pm. In order to attend the tryout make-up date on Wednesday, August 28th , you must receive permission to attend. The time slot will be provided to you, after permission is given, as to when your tryout will be on August 28th . In order to be considered to attend the tryout make-up date, you must send a note to providing name of player, age level intended to try out for, and the reason why the player cannot attend the tryouts over the weekend of August 17th and 18th.

Parents – There will be a brief parent meeting at the beginning of each age group tryout session on Saturday August 17th . Please ensure at least one parent is in attendance for this brief meeting.

Coaches – We will need your help with running the tryout stations! Please be on the lookout soon to signup for a time slot and date to help with tryouts. You may sign up for more than 1 time slot! Please remember you are not allowed to work the same age level as your son is trying out for (i.e. 12 Year old
Son trying out; Cannot work the 12U tryout sessions).

Lastly, the Chaska Baseball Association is finalizing a presentation deck to provide more details about the Metro Travel program, the tryout process, team selection process and the expectations and commitment level that a player and family are expected of while participating on a Chaska Baseball 
Travel team. The presentation deck will be shared and posted to the website prior to the first day of tryouts. Please remember that in order to be considered for a Metro Travel team for the 2025 season, all players must attend tryouts, so please plan accordingly based on the schedule posted.

NOTE: 13U & 14U travel tryouts will be in Feb/Mar 2025; details will be communicated once finalized.
