Rising 11U Players - Cooperstown 2022 Tryouts

Dear LCB Families,

We are very excited to announce the tryout for LCB's annual Cooperstown Dreams Park summer baseball tournament team.  This team will compete beginning in the Fall of 2020, culminating with a weeklong tournament in Cooperstown, NY in the summer of 2022.  This is a weeklong tournament of 104 baseball teams from around the country at a beautiful facility in upstate New York.  We are thrilled to be able to continue offering this highly sought after opportunity through LCB.

Due to the nature of this trip, there is a lot of financial support raising and logistical planning that has to take place well ahead of time.  There are MANY details to this trip that will be discussed with Parents while players are trying out, but here are the ones you should be aware of as you decide if your family and child would like to pursue this opportunity:
