TRAVEL

Placement on a MLBVBC travel team requires travel to a minimum of one Junior National Qualifier (JNQ), and the Junior Nationals (GJNC) at the end of the season. The club will NOT book any air travel for players (or parents). Each family must arrange transportation to and from each event as well as transportation to and from hotel.

All tournaments are "stay to play" events, which means the club has to book a certain number of rooms at a pre-determined hotel.

For 15s-18s teams, players will room together and the club will book these rooms. The cost will be included in tournament fees due to the club. Parents/families on these teams will be given the option to book at the team hotel if there are additional rooms in the club block. 

For 11s-14s teams, the club will hold a block of rooms and will send link to reserve a room to all participating families. All families must book within this block.

$150 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT (PER TOURNAMENT) IS DUE BY 11/6/2022.

 

SCVA BATTLE OF THE BIDS IS SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 29-30 (15s-17s) AND MAY 6-7 (11s-14s). TEAMS THAT ARE TRYING TO QUALIFY FOR GJNC WILL PLAY IN THIS TOURNAMENT IF A BID IS NOT EARNED PRIOR.
