Colt League Program (15, 16 & 17 year-olds)

Objectives:
The objective of this league is to provide a competitive environment for fifteen (15) and sixteen (16) year-olds to participate while preparing them for the style of baseball they will encounter in future levels of play. This includes setting a standard of participation which includes not only the enhancement of baseball skills, but incorporates good sportsmanship, training and practice skills, honesty, integrity and a positive, healthy and respectful attitude about the game of baseball and all of its participants including managers, coaches, umpires and spectators. To accomplish these goals, SVBSA will create travel team(s) selected from a tryout process to compete in the North Hills Federation league and to further have at least one if not more teams to play at the highest level in the Federation League. All SVBSA Colt teams will have the opportunity to be sanctioned Colt World Series Teams.

Manager / Team Selection Procedure - Colt League:
• The Colt League coordinator will obtain the names of all fifteen (15) and sixteen (16) year-olds registering for the Colt League Program. All registrants for the Colt League Program must be a resident of Cranberry Township of Sevens Fields Borough. Exceptions to this rule will be considered by the CTAA Board.
• Pony League age baseball players that make a high school roster, at their own decision, will be allowed to “play up” at Colt baseball for the given year that the player is on the high school roster. Once the players chooses to "play up", that player loses his eligibility for the Pony League and any tournament or select team participation at the Pony level.
• All teams will be travel teams. There will be a tryout to select one (1) or (2) select traveling teams from the registrants.
• Traveling team rosters will be set at a maximum of eighteen (18) players, minimum of twelve (12) players.
• The PONY Baseball Rules and Regulations for Colt Leagues shall govern the season's play.
• Travel team managers will be selected and receive approval as outlined in the Policy & Procedures guidelines on manager selection.
• The following guidelines apply to the formation of the travel team (s):

• The Pony League, Colt League, and County League Baseball coordinators, primary travel team manager and one member of the SVBSA Board of Directors will conduct one “open tryout”. Prior to this tryout, all participants will be informed that there is no mandatory playing time for travel team members.
• The travel team players will be chosen from those players who participate in the travel team tryout. Exceptions to this rule must be reviewed and approved on a individual basis by the selection committee and the SVBSA Board of Directors.
• If two travel teams are to be chosen, all players for the primary team will be selected prior to the formation of the second and any subsequent teams.
• Only those players who participate in the travel team tryout are eligible to be chosen for a travel team. 
• A player that is a present member of a JV or Varsity High School Baseball team and eligible to participate in the SVBSA  program must try out.

• Additional teams will play in an appropriate travel league.
