WHAT TO EXPECT
The Novi Heat is an established, premier 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 a competitive baseball environment.
Over our 23 year history, Novi Heat teams have competed at all levels from AA to Major and in KVBSA from Community to Open level. 2017/2018 have been some of our most successful seasons ever with teams placing in tournaments over 30 times each season, and posting over 100 wins in the KVBSA each season. 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 a state of the art 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 as the majority of our players compete in multiple sports. Our travel teams are open to all communities in the area and we have non-resident spots available in accordance with our bylaws.
