Baseball - Spring Travel 2017

Travel Baseball tryouts

There is no cost to attend our tryouts, but you need to register.  If your player is selected to a travel team, you will be sent an email that contains a link to finalize registration and pay for your specific age group.

The fee for our travel level teams is between $150 and $250 per season (age group dependent).  There is also a mandatory $75 raffle ticket fundraiser (15 tickets at $5 per).  Individual teams can also have additional fees to cover additional team costs such as tournaments or other baseball activities.

The team registration acceptance page will also contain a link so that you can purchase your player's baseball uniform.

Travel teams are comprised of players selected through a tryout process.  See the baseball website on bbgc.com for tryout date details. They compete in different leagues within Maryland.  This program is more competitive and time consuming than intramural. It is designed for players who are serious about baseball and desire to compete at a higher level of play.  Spring baseball tryouts start in February and teams are selected in early March.  The season runs from April to July.

Baseball - Spring Intramural 2017

Practices for intramural baseball will start in April for children ages 4-14. Intramural coaches will set the schedule for when they practice but typically practices are held twice a week until the game schedule is released. Then scaled back to once per week for practice and one game.  Older children may play two games per week.  Children participating in the intramural league will practice and play at area parks and schools located in Bowie. Children participating in the t-ball program will start in May but the teams will be selected in late April. The t-ball age group will have the same type of schedule as the older kids but games will be held only on weekends unless we have special circumstances such as make-up games for rain-outs.  

Baseball shirts and caps will be provided to the team by the coach, so please ensure that you select your player's jersey size and baseball cap size while registering.

Intramural baseball will end the third weekend in June.  For the Coach Pitch, Minor, and Major divisions this will include an end-of-season tournament.

Cricket

History
In 2012, the BBGC started its Summer Cricket Program, which was organized and run by Sham Chotoo and Ram Ragoo. The program was very well received by kids and parents alike. This early success encouraged us to continue the summer cricket program, which has already doubled in size.

In 2013, the BBGC participated in the inaugural Maryland Youth Cricket Association tournament, which is the first state cricket tournament for kids. We had two teams in the tournament. In 2014, the MYCA divided kids by age, and the BBGC 11U team was defeated in the finals by Germantown Kids Cricket Club.

In 2014, the BBGC also started the BEST Cricket League to give elementary school kids the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game. This effort was also organized and run by Sham Chotoo and Ram Ragoo. The BBGC formed a partnership with Prince Georges County Public Schools (PGCPS) to facilitate the event. The United States Youth Cricket Association (USYCA) donated 10 cricket sets to the program and continues to donate cricket set to any school. Cricket teams were formed from the various schools, and the schools played against each other in the BEST Cricket League. Heather Hills Elementary School was crowned the first Champion in the inaugural tournament. Principals, PE teachers, and parents were able to see firsthand the benefits of cricket for their students.

In 2015, due to the resounding success of the elementary school cricket program, parents asked us to start cricket in middle schools. Many of the kids that participated in the elementary school program were now in middle school. We started the Washington Area Middle School (WAMS) Cricket League.

In spring 2016, 336 kids played cricket including 113 girls, which doubled the number of female players in the entire USA. There were 14 elementary school teams and 9 middle school teams. There were 2 elementary school teams from Anne Arundel County and 1 middle school team from Howard County. The other 20 teams were from Prince George’s County.

2016 Elementary School Champions: Kenilworth Elementary School, Bowie.

2016 Middle School Champions: Montgomery Sharks, Ellicott City (players were from Bonnie Branch Middle School and Ellicott Mills Middle School).

Two our of girl players, Julia Chotoo and Sannuthi Samuthi, tried out for the USA National Women's Cricket Team. Both girls performed well at the trials, but they did not make the team. However, their efforts have inspired other players in our program and showed them what is possible.

Our 11U Travel Team repeated as the 2016 Maryland state cricket champions.

In 2017, here is the plan:
Jan - Feb: Indoor cricket practices in Laurel for the 11U travel team with the soft, vinyl cricket ball and for the 15U travel team with the regular, hard, leather cricket ball.

13 Mar - 26May: Elementary and Middle School Cricket Leagues.

3 May - 25 Jun: 11U and 15U Travel Teams will participate in the Maryland state cricket tournament. Tryouts for these teams will be in April.

26 Jun - 28 Jul: Summer Cricket Program to teach kids the basics of cricket with practices and scrimmages. Continued practices for travel teams.

Aug - Sep: Travel Teams will participate in the Burtonsville Cricket Tournament.

Sep - Nov: Fall Cricket Program with indoor Six-A-Side intramural matches.

Soccer - Intramural, Spring 2017

** NEW for SPRING 2017 **  BBGC will host an Academy style training session for our Intramural players.  This will be led by a professional trainer from UK Elite Soccer who will instruct and have our volunteer coaches running stations in an organized manner and from a professionally developed curriculum that is designed to better teach the fundamentals of the game to our players and coaches.  This will take place at Andy Brown Soccer field in Allen Pond Park on Mondays for the U5/6 and U7/8 age groups and Tuesdays for U9/10 and U11-16 players.  The times are being finalized but will be 5:45-7:00 for the younger teams and 7:15-8:30 for the older teams each day.  Please plan accordingly to be available for this opportunity as it will be considered one of your child's practice sessions of the week.  The academy nights will start in mid-March and run for 6 weeks.  Your volunteer coach will decide the other night your assigned team will practice on and will work to further the training on that week's topic.  

Our Intramural league places all registered players onto Co-Ed teams which will play against each other on fields in Bowie.  In the fall, our season starts in late August and runs through early November.   Teams will practice one additional day each week apart from the academy night training with games held mainly on Saturdays.  Your team’s practice schedule will be determined by your assigned coach.  Therefore, please list any practice day conflicts in the registration system to ensure you are accommodated to the best of our ability.  BBGC is an all-volunteer organization and the best way to ensure you get the schedule you want, is to step up and become a Coach.  Anyone interested in coaching in the Intramural program should contact me  or your age-group commissioner well before the start of the season.  Soccer@bbgc.com

The only equipment required for your child is soccer shin pads.  Although it is very helpful to have soccer cleats, they are not mandatory.  Baseball and football cleats with a front cleat are not allowed for soccer.  The game jersey will be orange and black jerseys provided by your coach at the start of the season.  Be sure to set the correct size in the registration system when registering.  Our leagues are organized into the following groups: U4&U5, U5&6, U7&8, U9&10, U11&12, and U13-U17.

Soccer - Spring 2017 Travel & County Teams

Spring Travel and Semi-Travel (County) Soccer Tryouts

In the Spring, only some teams will actually host tryouts but all players that are currently on a County or Travel team will sign up for tryouts to be invited to register for the team.

There is no cost to attend our tryouts.  All players are eligible for the highest level team and those players are chosen by the coach based on tryout performance in addition to team dynamics.  

Due to the mandates handed down by the US Youth Soccer program which sanctions all soccer in the United States, team age groups will now be based solely on calendar year.  We understand this has the severe ability to disrupt established teams and we are doing everything in our power to provide what is best for your player's development, team's need, and family's choice.  Please know this is not something we sought, but is forced upon us.

Upon acceptance of team invitation, you will register for your specific age group.  The BBGC soccer fee for our Travel and Semi-Travel (County) level teams is $140 per person, per season.  Individual teams can also have additional fees to cover additional team costs such as tournaments or indoor soccer sessions.  This will be paid by check before the start of the season and is a cost assigned to all players. Coaches will have an estimate of the amount during tryouts but typically ranges from $50-$150 for the travel teams.  

Thank you for being a part of Bowie Soccer!
