Registration for 2022 Team UK Academy & Tryouts now open!

Updated: Dec 17, 2021



The Team UK u10s coach-pitch programme has announced full details of its upcoming Baseball Academy for 6-9 year olds which starts in the New Year!


After successful Team UK Academies in 2019 and 2020, our subsequent activities were cut short by the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic. The global health crisis that followed also led to the cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 SuperCup tournaments.


As we look forward to 2022, it is hoped that we can enjoy a relatively normal year of youth baseball with the IDB in Prague recently confirming their intention to host the next SuperCup tournament over the weekend of 3-5 June 2022 all being well.


Team UK are bidding to form a travel team from a standing start and we will be partnering with the BSUK Academy programme to help support this initiative. BSUK will kindly be hosting our u10’s sessions at their venues on selected dates during January and February.


You can register your child now via the following link:

Closing date for registrations is Saturday 15th January 2022.


Date and times of Academy


Saturday, 22 January 2022  Verulam School (St Albans) 10:00  to 15:00  (new venue & times)

Saturday, 5 February 2022  Birmingham (Gospel Oak Sports Centre) 12:00  to 17:00 

Saturday, 19 February 2022  Coventry (Alan Higgs Centre)  12:00 to 17:00 


You can register your child for any one, two, or all three sessions.


We will be incorporating tryouts for the SuperCup travel team across all three dates but maximum attendance will help us evaluate individual players better, provide feedback and support ongoing development.

Eligibility


The Academy is open to boys and girls who already have some reasonable experience of playing baseball. Players will need to be aged 6-9 on 31st December 2021 and UK resident.


Cost of Academy


The cost of Team UK Academy is as follows (per child):


· One session £10

· Two sessions £20

· All three sessions £25


If you volunteer as a Team UK Academy coach or assistant coach, these fees are waived in recognition of your contribution to the programme.

All payments are collected by direct debit via Go Cardless in early January (non-refundable).

SuperCup 2022

As part of our development pathway, we will be providing the opportunity to try out for the Team UK u10s travel team, who will be participating in their 4th IBD Super Cup tournament in Prague, which is scheduled to be held on the 3rd-5th June 2022.


Further details about this overseas tournament opportunity will be released in the coming weeks.
