To Be Eligible to play 7u, players must be born between:
May 1, 2011 -- April 30, 2012.
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 our neighboring towns like Cherry Hill, Medford, Hainesport and Burlington Twp. The games are usually over the weekend from Friday Night through Sunday. Most tournaments guarantee each team a minimum of 3 games plus any playoff games.
The cost to play 7u travel ranges from $200 - $300 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 competitive baseball.
This will be our 5th year with a 7u team and it's been a very fun and successful program.

USABat Stamp of Approval
An Important Rule Change for 2018 that will affect every player in our league.
Starting in January, Cal Ripken Baseball in conjunction with USA Baseball has implemented new bat rules that must be enforced at all levels in both our GVAA Rec and Travel programs.
These new 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
