Our goal for all teams is to ensure continuity in learning for all participating players, coaches and parents. Tryouts for teams are roughly one to two days long and allow kids to showcase their talents in hitting, pitching, fielding (outfield and infield), as well as playing simulated games as part of the tryout.
Teams are then filled based on the outcome of the tryouts. Parents and players are contacted within two weeks of tryouts to notify them about whether or not they made a team, and if so, which team they will be playing on.
Which team is right for you?
These teams range from 8 to 14 years of age. The YS teams are comprised of kids that wish to play baseball at a high level and receive the best instruction around. Our Youth Select teams are usually competitive tournament teams only with the teams playing 8 to 14 tournaments per year based on the age of the team.
These teams are made up of the highest level of HS baseball players in the state. These players are from ages 14 to 18 and must be in high school. The Select teams are for players that are interested in weekly instructed workouts, showcase tournaments, and games that expose them to college and pro scouts.
