Youth Spring Select

The goal of this program is to provide each individual, and each team, specific training based on age and each player’s and team’s ability. We will give every player consistent teaching day after day, year after year and coach after coach. Consistency is what matters the most when developing young athletes. This is what we have accomplished in the High School divisions with 95% of our players going on to play in College or Professional Baseball. In the youth program, the emphasis will be on playing High School Varsity Baseball.

We field at least one team at each age group ranging from 8 to 14. These teams will be tournament teams that compete in the Majors and AAA division. We plan on playing in 12 tournaments per year with 1 to 3 of these tournaments being out of state tournaments.
