  • Ground transportation is being quoted by tour bus companies. This is to minimise risks to the travelling party.

It is very important to note that the preparation for this event conflicts with age relevant Little League schedule. As such, there has been significant consideration given to this conflict and how we may ensure that the integrity of the age relevant Little League programs remain in place.

With that in mind, the prerequisites of accepting an invite for this tour are as follows:

  • All players must make themselves available for their age relevant Little League Championships.
  • Should your charter progress, you would be required to make yourself available for the National age relevant Little League Championship.
  • Should your charter progress to the age relevant Little League World Series, if you must make the choice between this tour and the Junior League World Series, you must prioritise age relevant Little Leagues.

The prioritisation of playing with your charter, and your friends precedes this Performance Pathways Program activity, consistent with the values that BA and the States want to develop baseballers for life, and this requires the respecting of grassroots baseball. Fear not! If the above applies to you, there is still plenty of time to develop and harness your skills without the competition arm of this activity.

* should players have to withdraw due to the scheduling clash, a full refund will be on offer.

# it is noted that some families maybe in the financial position to undertake both activities. This is your choice to make. BA will only insist on Junior League being the priority.
