Centerville XTRA - New Competitive League Offered

We are so excited to let you all in on a little something we’ve been working at behind the scenes!!

We are adding a new league to our baseball program to fill a need that we’ve seen evolve over the last several years.  Our league, and every other community baseball program in the country, has lost a lot of kids to Comp Baseball.  While this might be the right fit for some kids looking for more competitive play, you lose the community feel that you get with the rec league—not to mention the cost and the travel!  

We are offering another alternative.  

Centerville Baseball is introducing the XTRA Leagueto provide a higher level of competition for talented and motivated baseball players who are willing to commit more time and energy to the improvement of their skills in a team focused environment.  Teams will work hard to win games, but winning will never be more important than development, teamwork and good sportsmanship.  Players will be expected to develop and display discipline, resilience, coachability and leadership on and off the field.  Because this league is designed with the higher skilled and more committed player in mind coaches will have higher expectations of attendance, performance and attitude.  Positions will be assigned and play time awarded based on merit, performance and commitment.  

A tryout is required for this league.  Players will need to demonstrate that they have a sufficient foundation of baseball fundamentals and understanding of the game.  We will field as many teams as we have the talent and coaching staff to accommodate.

We are still in the process of establishing the framework for this league so some in depth details will be forthcoming.  However, here’s what we can tell you at this time:

  • TRYOUTS will be held on AUGUST 3rd& 10that 9:00 AM. 
  • NOTE: August 3rd Tryouts held at the field at 350 S 400 W (by Home Depot )
  • You MUST REGISTER in advance for tryouts.
  • These tryouts will be for the 2020 Spring Season. Teams may choose to play together in the fall and through the winter depending on the coach.  Participation in the fall is OPTIONAL.
  • There will be a $10 fee assessed for the tryout registration.
  • This League will available to MUSTANG and BRONCO age groups. (Grades 3-6)  
  • Players will be required to register and play on a regular rec team in addition to their XTRA League team in order to qualify for this new league. 
  • You will be committing to at least 1 rec game and 1 XTRA game/week plus a post season tournament.
  • The cost to participate will be around $250 -$300 for the year. (This will cover league fees, uniforms, ump fees, Rec league participation fees, etc.) We don’t have a final number right now but are working hard to keep fees as low as possible.
  • You can expect 1-3 practices/week depending on the coach.
  • We will have some interleague play and some comp teams invited to join us to keep things challenging and competitive. Games will mostly be played in Centerville this first year but can be scheduled anywhere between Bountiful and Layton as we add other cities to the league in the future.

Registration is now open!!

We hope to see you at the field August 3rdand 10th!

We will be happy to answer any questions you might have and hear any feedback you have to make this league a success.  More details will be released soon.  Please check our website and social media for updates.
