DAA participates in the Suburban Travel Baseball league with other area teams from Warrington, Warwick, Plumsted, Northampton, Holland, Middletown, Pennsbury, Langhorne, etc. The travel program games and practices are in addition to the normal DAA in-house program.
To play travel baseball your child must be registered for DAA by your child’s age appropriate try out date and attend the tryouts as scheduled. Teams will be selected following the tryouts and indoor practices begin immediately. The Suburban Travel season runs approximately the same length as the DAA in-house season and games are played on Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Travel players will typically have 4 games (Fri/Sun travel; Sat/Wk Day in-house) and 1 travel practice per week on Wednesday night.
The cost to play “Travel Baseball” is incremental to in-house baseball. Costs are further detailed out below.
The number of travel teams DAA offers is based on the number of players that try out and the availability of quality coaches. There are typically "A" and "B" teams at the 10U, 11U and 12U ages. There are typically "A" teams at the 8U and 9U age groups - occasionally there are "B" teams at these levels.
Travel baseball begins at 8U. The birth dates range for each age group for 2020 are as follows:
For the 8U, 9U, 10U and 11U age groups, travel tryouts for the Spring are held in January. There are typically a few winter workout sessions held prior to the tryout in order to allow the players to knock the “rust” off prior to the actual tryout.
For the 8U, 9U, 10U and 11U age groups, travel tryouts for the Summer are held in Mid-May to early June.
For the 12U age group, travel tryouts are typically held in the fall (usually September or October). The 12U teams are formed earlier as the teams typically fund raise for a baseball tournament that they attend the following summer.
The dates and times for all tryouts are communicated via email and posted on the DAA Baseball Announcement Page.
Once the travel teams are selected, there will be a separate registration for the travel baseball season. The fees for travel baseball are not covered by the in-house registration fees.
There are no family discounts for travel baseball registration.
Please note that costs will vary by team. This is meant to give families an idea of the financial commitment required for travel baseball.
