Our youth travel ball programs (3rd-8th grade) run year-round. Kids may join at any time. We will make room for players we feel are ready to play, and will create new teams as numbers dictate. High school tryouts are in February after the high school seasons have ended. Tryout dates will be posted to our website and social media accounts.
How much do tournaments cost?
Youth tournaments cost $50 per player. High school teams will have a separate cost.
Can I pay for the tournaments online?
No. Monthly membership fees are handled through the website, but all money for tournaments, apparel, etc. is handled at the facility with a credit/debit card you bring in and we keep on file.
Where are the tournaments?
We play in tournaments at several locations between Santa Barbara and Orange County. High school teams will travel to Las Vegas once each summer.
Does my child have to play on the tournament team?
No. Tournament teams are only for those kids interested in competing at that level. We have plenty of players who use our workouts to continue strictly to improve their skills.
When is The Shootout?
We run Shootouts 4-5 times a year. The information for the next Shootout can be found on The Shootout tab under STARTING5 PROGRAMS.
Do you have anything for girls?
Yes! All our Shootout leagues are co-ed, and we also have workout groups and travel teams for girls.
Can my child try a workout?
Yes. We want you to be able to observe your child in our workout and meet our staff before having to sign up. Your child’s first workout is FREE!
What ages do you offer workouts for?
We have workouts for kids as young as Kindergarten. Our Travel Ball Prep workout is for beginners, and we have 7.5ft hoops for the youngsters to learn on. We have workouts for boys and girls through the end of high school.

Yes. All Starting5 programs outside of tournament games are hosted at the facility.
