KTB Tryouts Hot Weather Update Schedule Change
by posted 07/17/2019

2020 KTB Try-Out Schedule modification due to Extreme Heat


The heat index forecast for this weekend is very high.  As a result, Kaneland Travel Baseball is going to make some changes to our 2020 tryout times and format, as follows.   PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.


Friday, July 19Tryouts for all new players to KTB (10U-14U) will go forward as planned at 6 p.m.  However, we are going to scale back the amount of activity that we ask each player to perform.  We will do limited running and less rigorous activity than normal.  We also encourage everyone to bring plenty of water and cool rags.  We will take frequent breaks and watch the conditions very carefully.


Saturday, July 20 – The tryouts originally scheduled for 2 p.m. are being moved to 8 a.m.  This will include the following kids:

  • 11U – KTB players returning from the 10U team + call-backs from Friday night
  • 12U – KTB players returning from the 11U team + call-backs from Friday night


NOTE – the group already scheduled for Saturday @ 10 a.m. will go forward as planned.  That will include the following kids:

  • 9U – ALL Players (new team for KTB)
  • 10U – Returning players from the 9U team + call-backs from Friday night


Sunday, July 21The original schedule (2 p.m.) will go forward as planned since the temperatures are predicted to drop by about 10 degrees on Sunday.


During the tryouts, please tell your son to let any KTB representative know if they begin feeling faint or ill.  And please be sure to hydrate before, during, and after these tryouts.  


We realize that this time of the year is very busy with family vacations, the start of football practice and many other activities – so we are hoping to stay on schedule while also staying safe.


Thanks for your flexibility.
