Regional and Tournament Team Program

UpdatedTuesday July 28, 2020 bySaint Charles Youth Baseball.

Overview

Saint Charles Youth Baseball has competitive tournament and regional team offerings for 8U-14U.

Regional teams play in a different league than our in-house.  Either playing in the KCBS or WSBL (Coaches discretion).  They will also play in 4-5 additional local tournaments throughout spring and into summer. No overnight travel will be necessary and no tournaments will be outside the Chicagoland area. 

Tournament teams are a complimentary offering to our regular in-house baseball season and gives players an opportunity for a little extra baseball with other top prospects within the house league.  Tournaments will mainly be local and will not require any overnight travel.  Tournaments will be played against tournament teams from other in-house leages within the Chicagoland area
