#1. Are there tryouts for your team?
Yes, primary tryouts are held in the fall, but individual tryouts can be arranged if you are interested in the spring.
#2. How many days and hours a week do you practice?
We generally practice 2 times week (Tuesday and Thursday). Each practice is about an hour and a half to 2 hours.
#3. Typically where are your games/practices held?
We play our games at Riverbend Park, and our practices are at Riverbend Park, South Waco Little League and the Waco Sports Academy.
#4. What schools do you compete against? What league are you in?
We compete in the National Club Baseball Association (NCBA) Division 1 and play in the Gulf Coast North Conference. The other teams in the Gulf Coast North are the University of North Texas, Southern Methodist University, and Texas Tech University. The rest of the Gulf Coast Conference (South and East divisions) is made up of University of Texas, Texas A&M University, University of Texas-San Antonio, San Antonio College, Sam Houston State University, Kingwood College, LC-Montgomery, and Texas State University. We will likely play some or most of these teams in non-conference tournaments and playoffs.
#5. What are the dues for this club team?
Dues range from $100 to $300 for the entire school year, depending on the amount of fundraising and sponsorship we are able to get.

The conference season is in the spring semester (Early February to Early May, depending on conference success), but we also practice and play a handful of games in the fall semester.
#7. Do students need experience to join?
Ideally, experience is necessary. The overall level of competition is slightly higher than the average high school level.
