2024 Season 

 The FHS baseball team is a high school varsity program that provides homeschooled athletes the opportunity to compete at the varsity level.  We also offer a junior varsity program for younger players. This provides our younger players the opportunity to practice and develop alongside the varsity athletes. All home school players grades 8 -12 are welcome to try out for a roster spot. Private schoolers without a school baseball team may also try out, though they will only be offered a spot if there are not enough home schoolers to fill the team. Practices and training sessions are held as a single unit, allowing both groups to work together, growing and developing alongside one another with the coaching staff. Once the season begins the two teams will play separate game schedules.    

Winter Workouts   

Starting in December all prospective athletes have the opportunity to work together in organized training sessions which include strength & conditioning, speed & agility, and baseball skills development. 7th graders, while not eligible to try out for the team, are invited to participate in the winter workouts. These training sessions will take place weekdays in the evening and on Saturday mornings. The locations are provided by Fairfax county. They are conducted at indoor school gyms and baseball fields. The exact days of the week, times and locations are not known until a couple of weeks prior to the first of December and will run through February. Winter workouts are voluntary, but strongly encouraged. They are designed to help prepare the player for tryouts and the spring season. Typically, these training sessions will take place 3 – 5 days a week.   

Tryouts       

Tryouts are held the weekend following the spring sports interest meeting in late January. Tryouts are conducted in a college combine format. Players are given the opportunity to run a 60-yard dash, infielders and outfielders will field and throw from designated positions, catchers will demonstrate pop-time, pitchers will throw a short bullpen. All players will hit a round of BP and have their exit velo measured. Players will be notified the day after try-outs if they are being offered a roster spot. Upon notification the player has 24 hours to accept the spot on the team.  

Cost       

The preseason registration fee is $50 and it must be paid before an athlete can participate in winter workouts or tryouts.

Season fee:  Final fee for the season will be based upon the overall season budget.  In years past this cost has run between $300 - $400.

Each player also will purchase uniform items (jerseys and hat) that will cost about $150.

Select players from the team will be invited to play in the Homeschool World Series in May of 2023. This tournament is held just outside of Orlando, FL. The players selected to play in the HWS will incur the additional cost of the travel and tournament entrance fee.
