18U ACADEMY TEAM

The 18U Academy Team is a full-year training and travel program aimed at players who strive to play baseball at a high level, and are committed to working year-round on their skills. The program is designed to focus on the athlete's needs as individual players to help them excel in the game and attract post-secondary baseball opportunities.

 

The team will train and practice 11 months out of the year and attend multiple out-of-town tournaments and exhibition games against other Academy programs such as Going Yard, Okotoks and Webber.

 

The 18U program is divided into 2 blocks. There will be open registration for September and all players will train 5-6 days per week from September – end of December. In January, the team will be formed and those players will continue on with the 18U Academy Team schedule. Players not on the team will be offered an individual development plan for January - March to prepare them for their Baseball Alberta tryouts.
