All players trying out for Farmington Travel Baseball in 2017 are expected to be available on any of these four dates.  FTBA advises against scheduling early spring vacations during this time if you plan on playing traveling baseball in 2017.  After the Tryout Committee reviews the tryout process and manages the schedule with required school-activity conflicts, specific tryout dates for all age levels are expected to be released no later than March 5th.

Below are the dates and age groups for tryouts.  These are set per number of players trying out and mandatory school activities.  Please remember that Thursday March 23rd will be the FTBA emergency tryout make up day.  This day will only be used if an entire night of tryouts is cancelled.  

Specific times for each player will be posted by March 6th, 2017. The times will range from 5:30 to 9pm each night.

Hitting Clinics at DCTC

FTBA and DCTC are offering you another great opportunity to train FREE this winter at the batting cages on the campus of DCTC.   We are going to provide 3 different nights per week this winter-starting Sunday, January 8th and going through Sunday, March 19th. Guye Senjem with ADG Academy will once again lead Sunday nights.

10U and older

  • Sunday: 5pm and 6pm  (no session Feb 5th-Super Bowl Sunday)
  • Wednesday: 6pm, 7pm and 8pm

9U Players

  • Thursday: 6pm **This night is strictly for players that will be trying out for the 9U age group.
  • Since Thursday night is limited strictly to the 9U age group, FTBA strongly encourages 9U players to utilize Thursday night and not sign-up for Sunday or Wednesday nights, if at all possible.

DCTC has 3 cages that we will be utilizing for 50 minute stretches each night. This will allow us to have 30 hitters every hour (10 per cage).

We will use DIBS systems for signups this year. (This is same system most sports use – you will need to use the same DIBS login that you used to register for baseball and other sports). Dibs spots will be added for the next week each Sunday evening.

We want to make this fair for everyone so we setup the following rules.

  • You will only be allowed to sign up 1 night per week during the initial sign up period for that week.   
  • On Tuesday night at 5:00pm you will be allowed to fill any open spots for the Wednesday night (even if you already signed up for that week).  
  • On Saturday night at 5:00pm you will be allowed to fill any open spots for the Sunday night (even if you already signed up for that week).  
  • Only extra nights will be allowed once the window opens at 5pm on the night before the session.
  • We want to give everyone a chance to participate. However, we also don't want to have slots go unused.

COACHES - there is a DIBS session for coaches as well please try to help as much as you can.   In order to make this successful we need at least 6 coaches each hour each night.  You need not be a coach in the past to help out.  Please note these DIBS do not count towards the season volunteer hour requirement. 

Any questions please contact Rod Frost rodfrost96@gmail.com

DCTC Address - 1300 145th Street East, Rosemount, MN 55068.

Participants will need to fill out the FTBA waiver and bring it to the first clinic they are registered for. The waiver will cover the full 10 weeks.
