                               Shrub Oak Storm Travel Baseball Information


SOAC Travel Baseball is a great opportunity for area players and families to experience a more competitive game of baseball while gaining a greater understanding of teamwork and commitment. Travel baseball requires a great amount of skill and time. There is a significant difference in the competition level between Rec and Travel Baseball. There is a lot of time dedicated by our Travel coaches in helping your child further develop into a well rounded baseball player.

In recent seasons our travel teams, known as the Shrub Oak Storm, have played in the recently formed Greater Hudson Valley Baseball League(GHVBL). The GHVBL is a very popular and growing Travel league with over 400 teams in Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess and Orange Counties as well as Connecticut. The GHVBL operates a Spring, Summer and Fall travel season offering great competition for our local players. Several of our travel teams also participate in tournaments some which are local and some which require stay-overs. In 2018 alone, two of our squads have traveled to Cooperstown and 3 of our squads have traveled to Ripken in Aberdeen, MD.

Playing Travel Baseball could cost $200+ per player per season with the cost covering uniforms, umpires, town fees and baseballs. Most teams will also offer optional winter clinics, tournaments and practices at an added cost.

The Storm currently has teams in the 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U & 15U  divisions with plans on adding additional teams as interest dictates.

Travel tryouts are usually held in late April for the Summer and Fall seasons and in October for the following Spring season.

The 10B Storm team just won the Summer 2018 GHVBL Championship with a 28-2 record making it 6 straight GHVBL titles for this squad. The 2017 GHVBL Summer season saw 4 Shrub Oak teams take home divisional titles. Shrub Oak teams won the 8UA, 8UB and 9UB championships while our 11UB team won their consolation bracket championship. The combined 4 championships were a GHVBL high for total championships won by any 1 organization in the Summer season. Storm teams have also recently won the 2018 Cal Ripken Battle of the Bats 10U Tournament, 2018 Cooperstown Classic 9U Tournament, 2018 East Coast Bring The Heat 8U Tournament, the 2017 New Castle Memorial Day Weekend 8U Tournament and the 2017 Throgs Neck Columbus Day Weekend 9U Tournament. The Storm 10B team also won the Fall 2017 GHVBL title with a 15-1 record. This was their 4th consecutive league title in which their record is an astounding 78-4. 7 members of this Storm team also participated in the Golden Spikes National Tournament at Ripken in Aberdeen Maryland in October 2017 and took home the 9U championship with a 5-0 record.
