TOURNAMENT BASEBALL

Summer Tournament baseball is an exciting and rewarding experience that provides an opportunity to continue skill development in a fun and competitive environment.  Teams will participate in various exhibition games and tournaments against other little league associations.  To be eligible to play on All-Star and Selects teams, players must meet age requirements and either reside or attend school within the Jericho boundaries.  Proof of residency is required.

PLAYER SELECTION

The summer tournament teams will be selected on the basis of an in-season assessment by a combination Jericho and independent evaluators.
