This program was created as an extension of the Spring Baseball season for players in the U8, U9, U10, U12 and U14 age ranges and it has proven to be the key to successful early skill development. The goal of the Grizzlies Program is to help teach young players the fundamentals of fielding, hitting and overall game of baseball in an environment that is conducive to learning. The season begins in May with a small overlap of the house league and typically finishes in July.
Players chosen for the Grizzlies Program are placed in age and developmentally appropriate pools, and later assigned to a specific team. As a group, they receive training with an emphasis on technical skill development. In order to be considered for the Grizzlies Program you must have first participated in the Lake Zurich Tyro, Minor or Majors house league. For information on try-out dates please contact the Grizzlies President. The number of teams at each age level may vary depending on the number of players who tryout.
The Grizzlies also participate in the N60 or Northern Illinois All-Star League which is made up of teams from surrounding communities. Player can expect to play an additional 4-8 games within the N60 League. Depending on the age of your child, the Grizzlies will also play in 1-4 tournaments in the surrounding area (no more than 50 miles). This provides a fun and competitive extension to the house lease season. All home games are played on Lake Zurich Baseball fields (Staples, Lions etc..)
