What is Travel Baseball?
Travel, Tournament and Club baseball are all extensions of league and recreation baseball experiences. Players in travel ball have played a few years of Little League or other recreational baseball and are seeking to continue the baseball season into the summer and fall. If your baseball player is passionate about the game and ready to try their skills at a higher level, travel baseball might be right for you!
Where do we play tournaments?
Carson Valley Baseball is focused on playing “local” tournaments in the Reno/Carson/Tahoe areas with some being played in the Sacramento area of Northern California. The younger teams will likely play into the early fall while older teams may play through the fall. The upper level teams will practice and condition year round to ensure they are able to compete at the highest level.
The specific tournaments played by each team will be up to the manager and the parents, but most teams will play on the All World baseball circuit, more information can be found at their webpage.
