Our formal schedule in summer is light, with players focused on improving their speed, strength, mobility, and conditioning.
18U / 14U / 12U
During the fall semester, our available players practice and play from September to November. Games come through tournament play, with an occasional scrimmage against local opponents added to the mix, when feasible.
The 18U team practices three times per week in the fall, while the 14U and 12U teams practice once per week. We expect play in four tournaments for the 18U group and up to four tournaments for the 14U and 12U groups, subject to player development and availability.
We also hold tryouts for our spring teams during the fall semester.
HS / MS / 12U
We play intensely competitive varsity, junior high, and 12U baseball during the spring. We schedule UIL, private school, multi-school club, and other homeschool teams for varsity and junior high play, while the 12U squad plays tournament baseball.
Spring baseball for Kings begins late January and runs through mid-to-late May, depending on end-of-season tournament scheduling. We do not take a spring break and players should expect to practice or play consistently from the start to the end of the season.
For scheduling purposes and to accommodate spring weather on the coastal plain, high school and middle school players and families should be prepared to practice or play Monday through Saturday, with schedules sometimes changing on short notice. We try to avoid having more than five practice or game events per week, however.
The 12U team should expect to practice twice per week and play tournaments on Saturdays and Sundays.
