Manassas Bandits (12U): Welcome

Saturday, August 9

Welcome to the Manassas Bandits 12U Web Site

The Manassas Bandits are an 12U travel baseball team based in Prince William County, Virginia. The Bandits play in a number of State and regional tournaments and in local leagues. 

Our vision: Our goal is to develop our players to their full potential as athletes, while emphasizing the character traits and habits that lead to both to athletic success and to good citizenship. We strive to instill in our players the confidence, poise, and skills needed to succeed as a team and as individual players, without losing sight of the fact that baseball should also be fun and enjoyable for our kids.  Instruction is provided in a tough, but supportive environment, where our players are prepared to play at the highest competitive level.

Tryout? If you are interested in trying out for the Bandits 12U baseball team and your son was born in May 1997 or later, please contact us. We are not just looking for great baseball players, but for young men of character who also have the skill and/or potential to succeed as athletes.

Weekends to keep free for tournaments...

Labor Day Weekend Sept 5-7th

October 3rd & 4th  Colonial Heights

This fall we are playing a league with teams from Southern Maryland & Northern Va ( Fairfax, Prince William, Stafford, & Fauquier Counties).  We have the option of night games so we may play a couple of Saturday evening/night games as well as on Sundays.  This will give the guys who play football the ability to play both days.  We have an option of playing week night games as well but we will probably stick with week end games.  We will not play every weekend but will play 20 to 28 games this fall playing Saturday night & Sunday double headers 2 weekends.

Fall and Winter Schedules

Our work out schedules for the fall and winter will be finialized over the next couple of weeks.  Fall ball we are playing on Sundays as well as a couple of weekend tournaments.  We will practice twice a week along with a batting/bull pen practice at Osbourn High School, Metz Middle School or the club one night a week through August.  We start playing games the first of September and will end with a halloween tournament the first weekend of November.  Over the winter we will be indoors on turf at least 1 day, indoor batting/bull pen practice and camp one day a week starting mid December running through the end of February.  Batting/bull pen practice will be at the school to reduce cost to parents.
