2017 WBYB Blazer (full-time) Travel Tryouts

The Wheaton Briarcliffe Blazer program is a full-time baseball travel organization which participates at ages 10U-14U. The program is geared around high-level competition, player development, and building of teamwork and proper skills.

As such, players and parents are expected to commit to full-time participation when accepting roster spots on their respective teams. If there are any substantial conflicts it is required that player/parents notify the team manager prior to team selection so best possible candidates can be selected.

Tryouts for the 2017 Wheaton Briarcliffe Blazers will be held in Wheaton on the following days. It is encouraged that players attend both days, but not mandatory:

  • 10U (must not be age 11 before 4/30/17): 7/30/16 @ 11:00am and 7/31/16 @ 11:00am on field #13. Alternate (rain out) date: 8/6/16@10:30am on field #13
  • 11U (must not be age 12 before 4/30/17): 7/17/16 @ 3:30pm and 7/25/16 @ 5:30pm on field #14
  • 12U (must not be age 13 before 4/30/17): 7/20/16 @ 6:00pm and 7/31/16 @ 1:00pm on field #14
  • 13U (must not be age 14 before 4/30/17): 7/14/16 @ 6:00pm and 7/24/16 @ 1:30pm on field #14
  • 14U (must not be age 15 before 4/30/17): 7/19/16 @ 6:00pm and 7/23/16 @ 10:00am (see field information in 14U section)

Timeframe: Each Blazer team has certain levels of autonomy in scheduling various functions (i.e. indoor practices, tournament selection, etc.). In general, indoor practices begin in January or early February each year and conclude April 1. Outdoor practices , games, and tournaments then begin and conclude approximately mid-July. All players will need to be committed to this timeframe for consideration by team manager.

Cost: Prices will vary based upon team objectives, but generally costs are approximately $800.00 per player, which includes: uniforms, tournament fees, umpires, practice facilities, baseballs, team equipment, and league fees. This price does not include any costs for teams which participate in out-of-state events. Those charges, if applicable, will be relayed by team manager prior to player selection and acceptance of roster positions. There can be cost savings for uniform expenses for returning players.

Games/Tournaments: Teams will participate in the West Suburban Baseball League (WSBL). Games begin in early-April and conclude with playoffs in late-June. Additionally, all teams will compete in 3-5 local tournaments conducted anytime between April-July. The quantity of games for each age level generally averages from 40-50 games per year.

Managers/Coaches: All managers and coaches in WBYB  are volunteer parents. If a parent would like to volunteer for any assistance, please contact the specific age level manager at tryouts.

Team Selection: Tryouts will be conducted by the team manager and several other evaluators. Criteria for players who are offered spots is based upon the following factors (but not limited to): overall baseball ability, attitude, versatility, and participation commitment. The best available 11 or 12 players at each age group will be offered roster spots for each team based upon the prior criteria. The team manager has final discretion/decision on team selections. All team selections are subject to review by the Travel Commissioner and WBYB Board.

In the event that there is a substantial amount of additional talent available after primary roster spots have been filled, there is a possibility of forming additional teams at any age level. WBYB strongly encourages as many teams as possible, but will only do so with competent manager, coaches, and correct quantities of talent and availability. In 2016 we had multiple teams at two different age levels.

Please view website for additional specifics for each individual age group. The contact person(s) for each age group is noted and available to be contacted with any questions.

 

10U:

The 2017 Wheaton Briarcliffe Blazers 10U program will be conducting tryouts on Saturday, July 30 at 11:00 am and Sunday, July 31 at 11:00 on Field #13.

The Blazers do not have area restrictions and all players are welcome to try out for the team.  The cost per player is approximately $800.  The 2017 Blazers 10U team(s) will be playing in the West Suburban Baseball League (WSBL), and will also play in 4 tournaments. It is also possible that 10U Blazer team(s) may participate in an out-of-state event that will result in additional expenses. Estimated costs for those possibilities will be available prior to roster placement.

The approximate number of baseball games will be 35-40 games, similar to the 2016 number between Mustang in-house and 9U Bulldogs seasons.   Indoor practices will likely start in February, and be held twice per week, running through spring break (understanding there will be potential schedule conflicts with other sports commitments during this timeframe, and that players will do their best to attend as many as possible).   Outdoor practices will begin in April. 

It is recommended, but not required, that players attend both tryout dates.  If neither of the tryout dates work due to vacations or other commitments, we will attempt to make accommodations.   If you have any questions, please contact Mike Eger at   or 312-823-6784.

 

11U:

Please contact team manager, John Scherrman, with any questions:  

 

12U:

Tryouts for the 2017 12U Wheaton Briarcliffe Blazer travel baseball team will be at Briar Patch Park Field #14 in Wheaton on:

Wednesday, July 20th @ 6:00pm and

Sunday, July 31st @ 1:00pm

Attending both days is recommended, but not required.

The 2017 Blazer team will play approximately 40-45 games next season primarily in Wheaton and the surrounding communities. This will consist of 18 games in the WSBL, 3-4 local weekend tournaments and the Cooperstown Dream Park Tournament in July.

The team focus is on making sure each player enjoys playing the game, skill development, sportsmanship, and competitive team building. Training will start indoors in February. The season starts in early April and will end mid-July.

2017’s budget will be approximately $600 per player (including uniforms, WSBL league entry fee, tournaments, and umpire fees). There is an additional fee of $995 for the Cooperstown trip. As a group we will be exploring and participating in many fundraising activities to help with the cost of the trip to Cooperstown . All families and players will be expected to participate in all of these activities and functions.

If you have any questions , please contact the team manager, Bob Vozza via email:   or mobile phone (630)621-7107

 

13U:

The 2017 Wheaton Briarcliffe Blazers 13U team(s) will be conducting tryouts on Thursday, 7/14/16 @ 6:00pm and Sunday 7/24/16 at 1:00pm. Field location will be #14.

Our intention for 2017 is to once again field two “A” level teams to compete at the 13U level. Last year, we had 51 players attend tryouts for this age group, and we expect a significant level of talent to be available to roster two talented teams.

The Blazers do not have area restrictions and all players are welcome to try out for the team.  The cost per player is approximately $800. The 2017 Blazers 13U team(s) will again be playing in the West Suburban Baseball League (WSBL), and will also play in 4-6 tournaments. It is also possible that one or both teams may participate in an out-of-state event that will result in additional expenses. Estimated costs for those possibilities will be available prior to roster placement.

It is recommended, but not required, that players attend both tryout dates.  If neither of the tryout dates work due to vacations or other commitments, we will attempt to make accommodations.   If you have any questions, please contact the team managers, Sean Brennan   and Doug Elftmann  .

 

14U:

Our tryout dates are Tuesday July 19th at 6pm and Saturday July 23rd at 10am.  Both are at the Danada Fields: 2650 Navistar Dr., Lisle, IL (Located: Northwest of parking lot for Navistar Corp. Headquarters @ 2701 Navistar Dr, Lisle, IL)

The 2016 Wheaton Briarcliffe Blazers 13U team is finishing up another successful season which included 2nd place finishes in both the Rosemont Dome Ballpark Tournament and the Winfield Memorial Day Tournament.  The 2017 Blazers 14U team is looking for the best players in the area, to grow on our past success for 2017.  The Blazers do not have area restrictions and all players are welcome to try out for the team.  The cost per player is approximately $900.  The 2017 Blazers 14U team will be playing in the West Suburban Baseball League (WSBL), and will also play in 4-6 tournaments.  One of those tournaments could be a season-ending out of state tournament to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, or some other tournament of similar driving distance which would likely include some fundraising and/or addition funding. 

Players are required to attend at least one tryout and it is recommended that both tryouts are attended, if possible.  If neither of the tryout dates work due to vacations or other commitments, accommodations will be attempted to be made.   If you have any questions, please contact the team manager, Chris Frank, at 630-267-2000 or
