Philosophy of Elk Grove Travel Baseball Program
Elk Grove Travel Baseball (EGTB) is committed to providing a quality traveling baseball experience for the youth of Elk Grove Village. We strive to provide an environment of healthy competition which will assist our youth in the development of athletic abilities, self-confidence, and positive self-esteem. It is the goal of the organization to provide a program that emphasizes fun, development of sound baseball skills, and healthy competition.
In order to accomplish the goal, it is understood that every player will not necessarily have equal playing time, nor will every player get to play in the position of his/her own choosing. However, every player will be allowed to try different positions in practice, and every player will be given opportunities to play in game situations. At the younger levels, the emphasis will be on development of sound baseball skills, moving toward a more competitive program at the older ages.
EGTB strives to make our baseball experience as safe as possible for participants and spectators. Baseball, as with any sport, brings with it some risk of injury. EGTB will do everything possible to prevent injury to any player by providing adequate safety equipment; playing only on safe fields; and by not putting players into situations where they may be overpowered by other competitors. Safety of our participants and spectators is the highest priority for our organization.
EGTB welcomes input and ideas from our players, families and others. We are open to hearing concerns, ideas and comments from anyone who can help improve the organization. We welcome volunteers to assist with running this program.
