2017 Boys Post Season Travel Tryouts Updated 3/11/2017

Boys Post Season Travel enters into its 6th year within PYB/S as our "Travel Lite" program. The Travel Lite concept is to provide more of a true "travel" experience to those above average players in our house programs. We offer this as our response to the players and parents thirst for additional training and games at a higher level.

Travel Lite provides an opportunity for additional baseball each week. Practices and/or games will generally be held twice a week mainly on the PYB off days of Friday's and Sunday's. Games are held either against similar teams from neighboring towns or in tournaments that the team may enter. We feel that this type of environment provides a teaching atmosphere at a higher level than house can provide without going to the extreme of a Full Time Travel schedule and commitment. Our goal is to provide to all the needs of the ball players in Palatine: House, Travel Lite and Full Time Travel. PYB provides the lowest cost options around let alone the unmatched resources to learn this game beyond that of any other program in northern Illinois.

In NO way will Travel Lite interfere with the House teams schedule as House will ALWAYS take precedence thus the Friday evening and/or weekend practice/single game times. Managers and coaches at each age level are extremely aware and conscious of the education of arm health. These opportunities are meant to provide additional teaching mechanisms and not geared towards wearing out our young players. Arm heath will remain a priority.

We have found that playing in three to four tournaments and 10 to 14 single games as being the most successful. Game and practice schedules will be finalized by the manager of the respective Travel Lite team. The cost of the Travel Lite program is around $250; this fee provides uniforms and all tournament and umpire fees.

If anyone has additional questions in regards to our philosophy here or any other questions, don't hesitate to let us know!

Please reach out to Dean Tyska (dtyska@yahoo.com) or Steve Carroll (spcarrol1@att.net) if you have questions.
