Barrington Youth Baseball & Softball offers competitive travel opportunities for baseball and softball players.
Tryouts take place on August 23rd and 30th. Exact times on these dates for each age group will be posted here by August 9th.
This portion of our program is called Barrington Travel and we are the feeder program for Barrington High School.
BHS Coaches participate in a portion of our travel team training.
Baseball full-time travel is available for players u9 through u14. Softball full-time travel is available for u10 through u14 players.
PLAYERS MUST REGISTER THROUGH OUR WEBSITE TO PARTICIPATE IN TRYOUTS- Use the registration link below. Players must register by August 20th.
Barrington Travel is only for residents of CUSD 220.
Team formation is dependent on qualified interest.
Teams are formed in early September and most age groups have two teams. Team formation is subject to change based on the number of qualified participants.
Some teams start training in the Fall, most begin winter workouts in December or January.
BYB&S Travel teams have a comprehensive winter indoor training program that includes time with professional instructors.
Barrington Travel teams work closely with the Barrington High School program with player and coach training for baseball and softball.
All players will be notified of their status whether they make a team or not. All 2021 Barrington Travel Rosters will be finalized by September 8th with invited players receiving directions in early September for how to secure your roster spot by registering for the 2021 experience. Those directions will arrive along with the initial invitation. A deadline will be provided for when invited families must complete the registration process. Those who miss the deadline will be removed from the roster so please pay close attention to the directions for accepting a roster spot when it arrives.
Team budgets vary based on the age group. Most teams have a budget from $1,300 to $1,800. Teams that make an out of state trip require an additional expense (Cooperstown, Omaha, etc).
Barrington Youth Baseball & Softball has been serving our community for more than 70 years. Over time the program has grown with nearly 100 teams participating each year. While BYB&S continues to adapt to the changing needs of our participants the program remains focused on its original objective:
BYB&S is committed to teaching the game in a fun, competitive, and instructional atmosphere. We are focused on improving the ability of every player while enhancing the experience for every family. Our efforts create a passion for the game that will last a lifetime.
