Advanced Baseball



Advanced Baseball (AB)


The HAB Advanced Baseball (AB) program is for some of its more “skilled” players from 8U-10U, and is an extension of and to complement the recreational baseball program. The HAB AB program schedules its activities around the recreational baseball program. A participant in the advanced program is also required to participate with a recreational team during the spring season, NO EXCEPTIONS. The AB program is based on having coaches available and enough player participation. Our 11U-13U programs already participate in a defacto AB program because our Majors division participates in a co-op with other local parks during the recreational season.

The A/B program allows players to advance their skills in a fast paced and challenging environment. It also provides players the opportunity to play games against the best players from other associations throughout Jacksonville. There are no rotation rules or minimum playing time requirements in advanced baseball. Thus, playing time is completely at the discretion of the advanced baseball manager for his or her particular team. Games and practices are generally scheduled on Sunday afternoons, but may include practices during the week. AB season typically begins in February with tryouts and practices. 

Tryouts will be considered if enough players are interested in playing, and coaches are available. The number of teams will depend on the talent pool available for a particular age group and the availability of coaches. If a player makes one of the advanced baseball teams, there are additional cost associated with participation in order to cover uniform costs and umpire fees.

It is not required that your child play Advanced Baseball to qualify for Summer All-Stars. AB and All-Stars teams are selected independently from each other.

If you are interested in playing A/B, inform your rec league coach and email your league's commissioner.
