Tournament Team Tryouts:
Tournament Team Tryouts will be held in the spring after MYB League tryouts and Team Drafts are complete. Tournament Team Tryout dates and announcements will be posted on this website.
The MYB Board selects Tournament Managers. Tournament Managers will select their Players and Coaches. Once player selections are made, parents will need to register online and pay the applicable Tournament Team fee to confirm their roster spot before practices begin. Although Managers will always do their best to give each player opportunities, there are no play time minimums or guarantees for tournament team players.
Cost: The Tournament Team fee for the 2015 season will be a onetime payment of $100.00. This will assist in providing tournament uniforms, entry fees, field usage, equipment etc. needed for tournament play.2015 Tournament Team Managers:
