WHAT IS 7U TRAVEL BASEBALL?
Our 7u team traditionally plays in about 5 coach pitch tournaments starting Memorial Day Weekend at GVAA and runs through the end of June.
The tournaments are local, played at neighboring leagues in South Jersey.
The games are over the weekend from Friday nights through Sunday. Most tournaments guarantee each team a minimum of 3 games plus any playoff games.
The cost to play 7u ranges from $250 - $350 and includes, tournaments fees, uniforms and any team equipment.
The tournaments are all coach pitch and all the kids bat and play the field. It is a more competitive brand of baseball.
This will be our 7th year with a 7u team and it's been a very fun and successful program.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
We look forward to seeing the kids at the tryout.

USABat Stamp of Approval
Cal Ripken Baseball in conjunction with USA Baseball has implemented bat rules that must be enforced at all levels in both our GVAA Rec and Travel programs.
These bats are designed to act like wood bats and they must have a USABat Stamp of Approval to be legal for play.
TEE BALL BAT RULES:
Beginning January 1, 2018, participating National Member Organizations will adopt the USABat standard for youth baseball and tee ball bats. Unlike standard youth baseball bats, tee ball bats (lengths 26” and shorter) are not required to undergo lab testing to receive approval under the USABat Program.
However, to be approved for play within the participating National Member Organizations, tee ball bats must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying permanent text which reads:
ONLY FOR USE WITH APPROVED TEE BALLS
