Large Organizational Multi-Age Group Tryouts

13/14U and JV/Varsity Large Team Tryouts


The Bears Baseball of NOVA Showcase, High School Varsity NVTBL, High School Junior Varsity, and Middle School NVTBL Teams

The Bears of Nova will be holding tryouts throughout the Fall 2021 (all teams) on an appointment scheduled basis. Looking for players from 2027, 2026, 2025, 2024, 2023, and 2022 graduating classes.

 Tryouts:  On-going.   

 Location:  We will hold tryouts at our indoor or outdoor facility by appointment.  I know that families and the players are busy and we want to work with you on a good time to tryout. 

 Contact:  Curtis Brockman at cttcamarocar@aol.com or bearsbbnova@gmail.com or by phone at 636-734-1968

 What we want in a player:  We are looking for High School and Middle School Players that love to play baseball and want to continue playing baseball beyond High School.

 What we need:  We are looking for players for our two Showcase, two HS NVTBL, and our MS teams for the Fall 2021 timeframe and start building for 2022.  We welcome all players that are interested for all positions.  We currently have robust rosters but are always looking for a few more players.  As we grow, we may add more teams.  We are looking for players from 7th grade through 12th Grade. 

 About the Bears:  Our Organization is located in Fairfax County, VA, plays in Showcase Tournaments (Showcase Team Only) throughout VA and neighboring states.  We also play NVTBL on weekends (HS and MS teams) and games through the week.  We are looking for Middle School and High School Players.  We are looking for all position players, pitchers, and catchers.

Our Philosophy:  Winning will take care of itself, we want the players to develop and move up.  Whether they want to play in High School or College, we want to help them get there.  All players that we place on our teams play and all players bat in every game.  You can't develop, if you don't play.  

Facility:  We have our own facility.  Our coaches are all volunteer, so we keep the cost low.  Facility use will be for our organization primarily and will involve lessons with the players, team practices/lessons, and timeframes available for individual work.  I know that some facilities would make you pay a lot for this but that is not what our organization is about.  Our cost for a full year, with the facility, will run less then what most teams charge for just the fees for the seasons for a year.  You will pay one cost with everything, to include all fees for the season, up front. 

 Goals:  For all players to improve, continue to move forward in their baseball careers, and to become better men.  We firmly believe that school comes first.  If your player needs to miss a baseball function for something school related, we understand.  This includes preparing for tests and occasional homework issues. 

Thank you for your interest in Bears Baseball of NOVA,

Curtis Brockman, Manager

NOVA Expos 14u looking to add two players to our Spring 2022 team. Players will also participate in our winter workouts starting in February. Primary Needs: One catcher and a first baseman- both with average power or above. This is a great opportunity for a catcher who is currently serving as a back up on a team to get a lot more reps.

We have a solid group of kids in the goal of the team is to give everybody as many reps as possible while helping everyone improve and prepare to make their high school teams.


If interested please send a brief email to novaexposbaseball@gmail.com or text 703-870-0894 describing your son's travel ball experience, his primary positions and any other relevant information.  We will invite you to one of our practices over the next few weeks.

Here's a little background on the Expos.

The NOVA Expos is a grassroots team in Northern, VA with the goal of preparing every player to excel at the high school level and beyond. It is 100% non-profit and dues are roughly $350 per season. We are an excellent alternative to some of the bigger named programs if your son wants more hands-on attention and a smaller roster.

- We formed in May of 2019 with the goal of nurturing kids' love of baseball while helping them prepare for baseball at the next levels. Our expectation is that every player on our team will move on to excel in High School and hopefully beyond. 

- This is 100% non-profit. Our typical season costs are only $300-$350 per player per season. Winter dues would be $200. We are not in the business of "pay for play." 

- We prefer to carry no more than 13 players on the roster to ensure everyone gets ample playing time.

- Winter program will run from mid-February through end of March 

- There are no favorites on this team. You earn a spot and earn playing time.

- The focus on this team is a healthy balance of improving as a team, individual development, having fun and showing our competitive spirit on the field.

- Team will play in both NVBTL and in regional tournaments. May also travel outside of the region for the right tournaments.

- Practices will be in Reston or Herndon, VA - Games all over Northern, VA
