Players will be evaluated in throwing, fielding, and batting. Please bring proper equipment for the positions you will want to play. For the 2016 year, the fee remains the same at $300. The fees pay for uniforms, tournament entry fees, umpires for local games, and equipment. The River Bandits play mostly tournaments within an hour to an hour and a half away including the Quad Cities. They would like to attend the 2016 Slumpbuster Tournament in June, an annual tournament located near Omaha, Nebraska, at the time of the College World Series. The tournament offers many activities for the boys, including tickets to a College World Series game, a Fundamentals challenge, and Wooden Bat bonfire.
