Crystal Lake Baseball offers a full-time travel baseball program for advanced baseball players ages 8-11. Players must tryout and be selected in order to participate in the Travel program. Crystal Lake Bulldogs Travel baseball includes indoor winter training, professional instruction, full uniform and equipment package, full regular season (8U-11U) games, and multiple tournaments scheduled for each team. The Bulldogs begin indoor practices in December in our private 10,000 square foot training facility with regular season games beginning in April.

Our Bulldogs play in local and out of state/overnight tournaments selected by each team. The Bulldogs will play their home games at Crystal Lake Baseball’s existing facility, Canterbury Yards located behind Nick’s Pizza at Canterbury Elementary School.

If you are selected to a team, the cost will be $1500 for 8u and $1850 for 9u-11u total for the season. Practice will be from December 2019 - March 2020 and the season will run from April 2020 - July 2020.  Most teams will have 3 out of town tournaments which will require payment for a hotel stay.
