18u Brian Bowman

The summer season begins in late may with practices 3-4 days a week and tournaments or games most weekends. We focus on playing a strong Mid-West/Chicagoland Tournament Exposure Schedule with some out of town exposure tournaments mixed in – a total of approximately 7 tournaments, including Colorado. Our goal is to earn a bid to Nationals in Huntington Beach at the end of the summer. We then take the rest of August off before beginning again in September.
