2020 Season- Barrington Travel Tryouts


2020 Travel Team Tryouts took place on July 9th and 10th. 

2021 Travel Team tryout dates will be announced by May 1st and posted here.



Barrington Travel is only for residents of CUSD 220.  Team formation is dependent on qualified interest.


Teams are formed by the end of July and most age groups have two teams. 

Players must register to tryout at on the Barrington Travel page. 

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 with professional instructors. 

BYB&S is the feeder program for Barrington High School.

Barrington Travel teams also 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 2020 Barrington Travel Rosters will be finalized by July 24th with invited players receiving directions in July for how to secure your roster spot by registering for the 2020 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 $1,200 to $1,700.  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 60 years. Over time the program has grown with over 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 teach 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.
