Fall 2024 Mavericks Tryouts

Heading into the Fall, we are excited to offer at least five teams, one at each level beginning at 8U and culminating at 12U. An overview of the teams are below:

  • 12U – led by Andy McDermott & Dan Conway
    • Birth dates – September 1, 2012 – August 31, 2013
  • 11U – led by Nate Winkelfoos & Mike Berger
    • Birth dates – September 1, 2013 – August 31, 2014
  • 10U – led by Nick Teach & Maria Balducci
    • Birth dates – September 1, 2014 – August 31, 2015
  • 9U – led by Brandon Maupin
    • Birth dates – September 1, 2015 – August 31, 2016
  • 8U – led by David Skoclas
    • Birth dates – September 1, 2016 – August 31, 2017

With the addition of Brandon and David to our managerial ranks, we are adhering to our overall coaching philosophy, which is that each team will have at least one member of the coaching staff who has an established background and foundation in the game of baseball – whether having played the game at an elite level, or having coached, or is currently coaching the game at an advanced level. Brandon played corner infield and pitcher for Longwood University, while David played college ball, pitching at McDaniel College, in Maryland.

At Large Coaches:

In addition to the managers/coaches for each team, we are excited to announce that we will have two at-large coaches working across the various teams this fall. Both are part of coaching staffs at local high schools, have extensive playing and coaching experience and have been directly and/or indirectly involved with Mavs across the past year. Please meet:

Steve Ball – West Potomac Assistant Coach

Wes Yeary – Alexandria City High School Assistant Coach

We are still finalizing exact logistics, but you’ll see these coaches at practices and potentially games across the fall!

Tryout Overview:

As a reminder, these tryouts are for the Fall 2024 season and we’ll be assessing players for the 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U and 12U teams. We encourage all interested ball players to come out. Independent assessors will be onsite, with coaching staff from each team there to assist, observe and answer questions. We will build our teams based on little league age ranges not travel ball age ranges.
