General Information

Maple Valley PONY is very excited about the opportunity to offer this level of baseball to Maple Valley and surrounding communities. The goal of the MVP Baseball Tournament program is to offer players an affordable opportunity to participate in a next level of play.


Tryouts
All players interested in playing on a MVP Tournament Team must register and attend tryouts. Registration for tryouts opens each year in early July with actual tryout dates scheduled for the end of July and/or early August.

Teams
MVP Baseball forms one team in each of the 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, 14U, 15U, and 16U divisions as long as coaching staff is available. Each team will consist of 12 players selected by tournament team coaches and select Maple Valley PONY board members. Teams will only be fielded if coaches and Maple Valley PONY board feel that a competitive tournament team at each age group can be assembled.

Cost
Full program fees are determined prior to the opening of tryout registration. There is no cost to register for tryouts. Players selected for a MVP Tournament Team will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit upon accepting their position to the team. Payment for the remaining balance can be completed at the same time or through a scheduled payment plan set by the Maple Valley PONY board.

Player uniforms, tournament fees, umpire fees, and training (as outlined below) are included in the full program fee. Additional costs related to travel expenses are the responsibility of each player.

Training
Training begins at the end of January when each team will receive six weeks of hitting instruction as well as outdoor fielding and/or pitching instruction offered by Rock Creek Sports. Outdoor practices will be based around developing core skills in infield, outfield, and base running as well as baseball IQ and overall team defensive drills. Team practices will be scheduled in February for two days per week with the exact days to be determined by each Head Coach.

League & Tournament Play
Tournament play can begin in March and run through July. The goal of the MVP Baseball Program is for each team to play in 5 to 6 tournaments. Tournaments selected will be within Eastern/Western Washington and possibly one in Oregon (this is subject to change based on tournament availability).

MVP Tournament Teams in divisions 11U and older will be registered to play in a local Select league. The 10U team will play in the Maple Valley PONY Bronco division and the 9U team will play in the Maple Valley PONY Mustang division. These teams will not participate in the Maple Valley PONY spring playoffs.
