Spring Prep League:  This league incorporates all 13-year-olds and features local practices and games.  Teams form in mid-March.  There will be two practices weekly until early-to-mid-April when games begin.   The game season will extend through the middle of June and will culminate with an end-of-season tournament.  Players in this league will be able to explore various positions and can form strong bonds with teammates as they play with their friends on local high school fields and Barcroft Park, home of the George Washington University Colonials.  Players also can be nominated to one of two Memorial Day weekend tournament teams for additional experience in a tournament setting.

Summer All-Stars:  ASBR sponsors two 13-year-old All-Star teams that accommodate all interested players.  Both teams will begin practices in June, immediately following the spring season.  They will have a full practice and tournament schedule through late July.  Players must play in the spring Prep League in order to be eligible to participate on either summer All-Star team.

  • The top team--District Team--will play in four or five tournaments and will have daily practices, providing high-level instruction six days a week.  This is an excellent preparation for high school baseball.  Players must commit to the schedule in its entirety to be on the district team, whose play will culminate with official Babe Ruth tournament action.  The the winning team will advance to the state tournament and beyond – a common occurrence for our summer All-Star teams.  In fact, in the past four years, ASBR has had five district champions, one state champion, one state runner-up and nine state-qualifying teams. 
  • The other summer All-Star team--Tournament Team--also will have a complete tournament schedule, but will give consideration to players who miss games due to vacation or camp.  This team offers four-five days a week of summer baseball action. 

Fall Ball:  This game-only league will run from early September to early November.  This will be the first exposure to the 90-foot diamond for many rising 13 year-olds.  This league will pair 13s and 14s and will offer two games a week in Arlington.  Participation in the Fall ball program will not affect eligibility for the Spring regular season or the Summer All-Star season.  However, it will provide an excellent opportunity for players to gain experience on the larger diamond and to play with friends.  

Senators Baseball Club

The Arlington Senators Baseball Club is the travel arm of ASBR and its goal is to help prepare players for high school baseball and beyond.  The idea is to offer players who want to play at a higher level the opportunity to tryout to do so in Arlington. More details and information regarding this program can be found under the separate menu item on the home page:  Arlington Senators
