Travel/Select Program

Koa Travel/Select Baseball

Select Baseball is the highest level of Koa baseball. Travel/Select provides players the opportunity to play at a higher level, find camaraderie, perform through adversity, learn teamwork and to respect opponents on and off the field. For players in the younger age groups expect an emphasis on skills and team building while keeping it fun.  As the players approach high school, expectations rise for increased focus and performance.  The program is ideal for players looking to try out for their high school team and potentially play college baseball. As players progress in age and skill level, teams gel, on and off-field friendships form, and meaningful baseball memories are made.

Program Description: Koa’s Travel/Select baseball program is intended for serious players.  Travel/Select baseball must be players’ primary athletic commitment for the season.  Interested athletes must attend tryouts.  Players receive equal attention during practices, and  playing time is based on merit. Teams will have starters and bench players; in double-headers (when applicable) starters play the first game and everyone plays in game two. Generally, players attend two 1.5-hour practices/week at fields in the Bethesda/Potomac/Rockville area. Teams play between 12-18 games/season, depending on the age group, with games on Saturdays and/or Sundays (midweek games).  Each team has a “Head Coach” that attends games and practices with rotating Assistant Coaches (avg. 1.5 coaches per game/practice). Coaches (and you and your athlete) are aided by our full-time staff, including Koa’s Director of Baseball, who handles field assignments, scheduling, uniforms, equipment, practice plans and more.
