Life After Majors (13-16 Year Old Players)







Now that Majors has wrapped up we know many of you are thinking about the next step for your child in regards to baseball. There are many local baseball program so choosing one can be a daunting task. Some of the programs are invitation only (coach contacts you) and most offer professional coaching at different price levels. But are these programs what's best for your player's enjoyment of the game?

Over the past few years TVLL offered a Spring program for 13 year olds called the ”Intermediate” (50/70) program. There are two levels in the Intermediate program "Gold”, which is a competitive advanced level team chosen at the beginning of the season thru tryouts, and "House", which is made up of kids who just want to play ball. The Gold program is professionally coached while the House program is coached by parents, just like in Majors. Being that the Gold program is professionally coached the fee is priced accordingly, but is lower than most programs outside TVLL. All TVLL Intermediate programs are housed locally (Danville) with local practices and games (located within District 57).  Many of the games are played at Diablo Vista Park Field DV80.  The Gold team also has a District All Star Tournament and World Series and may travel a bit further to play in a few outside tournaments. The Gold team plays a fall tournament season and then a regular, local season starting in March and ending in Mid-June.  House teams will be formed in late January after a player evaluation held at Sycamore Park.  We are also looking for energetic team Managers and Coaches for the House league. 

For the 14 year olds we have a very similar program that has a “House” league, and a “Gold” league which is equivalent to the 13’s Gold team.  This division is called Junior 90’s.  The Junior 90's Gold team is professionally coached with tryouts held in mid-October.  This division plays on a 90 foot diamond to get the kids ready for high school.

Looking a few years ahead there are also Seniors House and Gold programs for the 15 and 16 year olds who don't play on their high school teams.

All sign-ups are through the TVLL Web site. As always, you can contact us if you have any questions or want to talk about what’s out there for your child next year.
