2023 Canton Cardinals Tryouts

GCYBSA will be hosting our travel tryouts for our Canton Cardinals organization.  The Cardinals will be playing weekend tournaments from mid-April to the end of July 2023.  Teams will play from 1-2 games a week with a weekend practice when not participating in tournaments.  If playing one game, they will practice one night during the week.   The cost will vary by each team from $1,0000 - approx. $2,000 depending on the team and the number of tournaments. The younger teams typically have the lower cost. Both our 12U teams may elect to attend Cooperstown for a week-long tournament and the 13 & 14U teams may elect to attend Cal Ripken for a week-long tournament. If the team is attending Cooperstown there is an additional cost per player.  


Heritage Park is in Canton on Heritage Drive.  Heritage Drive is the light between Cherry Hill and Palmer where the Fire Station is.  Please attend a half-hour earlier to sign in with the coach.  This year the coaches will be conducting their own tryouts.  Please click on the link at the bottom to fill out the pre-registration form.
