COMPETITIVE TEAMS

COMPETITIVE TEAM / ALL STAR OVERVIEW

The purpose of the Julington Creek Competitive program (known now as JCC and formally our AB program) is to provide advanced instruction to all players that have an abundant enthusiasm for the game of baseball with the opportunity to learn and compete at a higher level without the cost of a traditional “travel” program. It is a competitive program and each player is required to try out in order to participate. This program requires a higher level of commitment than our recreation baseball at JCB from the players and their parents.

We form JCC teams in each age group during Fall and Spring rec seasons, and our All-Star program takes over after Spring JCC program ends for play in summer Cal Ripken sponsored All-star tournaments.  Depending on the number of participants and coaches available, we try to have two teams (A and B team) for each age group. 

 

Questions

Most questions are found in our Frequently Asked Questions Webpage. You may also contact JCB's AB & All Star Directors, Chris Thompson (5U-8U) at christopher.thompson@wellsfargoadvisors.com and Matt Miller (9U-12U) at (jcb6ubandits@gmail.com) with any additional questions or concerns about Julington Creek Baseball.


COMPETITIVE TEAM SELECTION PROCESS

 

•           New established grading criteria for Evaluations will spell out exactly what 1-5 means on grading chart for head coaches to grade the players.

•           JCC  tryouts will be held separately from Rec tryouts.  Players must attend a JCC tryout to be selected unless an injury prevents attending a JCC tryout and this will be addressed on a case by case basis.

•           Different age group head coaches will grade the JCC tryouts and all grade sheets will be turned in to commissioner who will compile all scores for the A team manager.

•           Only the JCC “A: team manager is announced at the start of each season and team evaluations will be done at end of each season to determine that manager deserves to stay as manager the next season.  Returning “A” team coaches have first dibs at the job if the  evals are good each season.  If not we will open up an interview process to replace him or her.

•           After the JCC “A” team is picked each fall and spring, the JCC “B” manager will be selected next if enough qualified players for a second team tried out at same time.

•           7 players must be picked from the top 12 scored players from tryouts (including makeup tryouts).  Other players are picked based on team needs, scores of tryouts, and past performance in rec and past AB teams.   After “A” team is picked, the “B” team must pick 10 from the next higher 12 scored players left from the tryout list.

•           JCC rosters can be as low as 11 for the “A” team to help man a “B” team but not more than 14.   If a player decides he does not want to play for the “A” team he cannot play for the “B” team.  

•           In fall, minors and major JCC teams can opt out of rec as long as they play at least one travel tournament a month.  Rookies and tball JCC must play rec in fall due to lack of available tournaments for those age groups in fall and the “A” teams only have option to play up one age in rec if they want.   How teams are split in rec in fall will depend on need of head coaches as determined by commissioners

•           In spring, rec is required by all teams in JCC in order to qualify for allstars.  The “A” teams can play up (if ages not combined due to lower numbers) and “B” teams will stay down in rec in spring in all groups (except 12u who cannot play up in 13u per Cal ripken rules). How they are split up on rec teams will be determined by the commissioners need for head coaches.   Rec has priority since we are part of JCB.

•           Durbin concessions will be run by Cooperstown teams and Mills concessions will be run by JCC teams to help fund their travel expenses.

•           JCC teams will have option to buy into indoor cage time weekly for fall and spring at the new 5 tool facility

•           Sponsorships can be raised in fall to help fund expenses per the league policy on sponsorships with no refunds for departing players who leave mid season and left over can be carried over to spring.

Our JCC program is designed to better prepare our future allstar teams now to win a State Championship next summer.    Separate JCC tryouts will continue to be held each fall and spring and another one for summers allstars  with no guarantees for anyone being automatically selected for each team.  Selections will continue to be based on tryout performance, past allstar and/or JCC performance, Rec performance, and past parent issues that would be detrimental to team chemistry and future team performance.
