Novi Heat Travel Baseball was founded in 1995 and is not affiliated with the Novi Nitro organization or the Baseball Lab of Novi.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Novi Heat is an established, well known youth travel baseball program with the mission to build fundamental skills, emphasize teamwork, and develop strong character that will allow youth baseball players to grow as young men in competitive baseball environment.
Over our 22 year history, Novi Heat teams have competed at all levels from AA to Major and in KVBSA from Community to Open level. 2017 was one of our most successful seasons ever with teams placing in tournaments over 35 times, and posting over 115 wins in the KVBSA with 9 of 11 teams placing 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in their division. We are not all about winning though as our focus is about developing players to maximize their potential individually and as a team. We have our own indoor practice facility and a lower cost structure than all travel teams in the area. More information can be found by clicking here.
The Novi Heat conducts a thorough tryout for all players. Players for all teams are selected by the head coach. Players may be selected to "play up" a year if highly skilled or roster spots available, but may not "play down" to a lower age for any reason. We encourage multi-sport athletes and welcome them to tryout. Our travel teams are open to all communities and we have non-resident spots available. For 9U to 14U, we will create multiple teams if the NYBL/Novi Heat bylaws are met at the time of tryout.
