2017-2018 Concord Cannons Program Information (Ages: 9-12)

Concord Cannons organizational philosophy at the 9u-12u age group is developing players on and off the baseball field. At these ages it's crucial for players to learn the game from the mental and mechanical side.

It is imperative that our players have a positive experience on the field and tested against similar competition. We teach each player what it takes to perform at a high level.

Although knowing how to win(and lose) is an important part of every players’ development, at the younger ages it should not be the only thing.

Frequently Asked Questions

I play another sport and can't make a lot of the winter workouts so can I still play travel baseball?

Absolutely... the offseason workouts are not mandatory. The Cannons organization believes that being a well rounded athlete children should play multiple sports. The workouts are designed to keep the players playing over the offseason and to make what they can. Remember the facility use is included in the Cannons program. So if you have a free night or weekend reserve a cage with a teammate or parent.

Am I allowed to play town baseball or school baseball and play for the Cannons?

The Cannons philosophy is to play as much baseball as possible!! The more you play the faster you will advance. Town baseball is great and there are many times we hear that travel ball is ruining town leagues because kids aren't allowed to play both. Though we understand this is true with some programs it has never been true with the Cannons. We want the kids playing town baseball. Typically the Cannons games are on weekends and there may be some conflicts we ask each family to communicate with the coaches of the Cannons program about conflicts.

School baseball should always be the priority over the Cannons. There should never be a discussion about not pitching in school baseball to be saved for the Cannons. Our program has never asked another school coach or player to not throw because Cannons. We understand that sometimes parents take it upon themselves to do this but it is not coming from our organization.

I played for another travel organization and the competition was weak. What is different with the Cannons?

There is a travel team out there for everyone. This wasn't always the case but it is today. Some programs take every player and offer multiple teams in each age group and play them in low level travel baseball leagues. The difference with the Cannons organization is we participate in the Elite Baseball League which is considered the top league in New England. The league offers 3 divisions and the Cannons offer a team in every age group in the top division. This is to challenge our players against the best competition and to better prepare them for high school baseball, college baseball and/or professional baseball. When choosing travel baseball do your research not all programs are alike.

2017-2018 - Prospect Teams (15U and 16U)

The Concord Cannons 15U and 16U Prospect teams are for the players interested in playing at the collegiate level. These teams are not only developmental but also focus on creating a winning team culture.

The Cannons program does not believe in showcase teams. We will attend college scouted events but we are trying to win these events. We feel that programs that charge excessive amounts of money to "showcase players" and have them split playing time or pitch 2-3 innings stops the development of players. We are about developing players and concentrating on our players worrying about the things they can control during the college process. This is the wrong program for you if you are only worried about yourself and "showcasing" During our 10 years running travel teams we've never had a college level player get missed. We will do whatever we can for our players communicating with coaches and pro scouts throughout the college selection process. TRUST THE PROCESS!!!
