EVALUATION CAMP INFORMATION
 

Our Evaluation Camp is formatted very similarly to the showcase format. Players will be tested on foot speed, arm strength, bat speed, lateral quickness, and defensive skills. For pitchers and catchers, we also have each of them throw and catch bullpens. For pitchers, we will be charting their velocity, how well they pitch around the zone, and how well they throw their off-speed pitches. For catchers, we will be evaluating how well they receive the pitch, how well they block balls in the dirt, and how well they work with pitchers. Data gathered at this Camp will be sent directly to the following schools if certain criteria are met. Each of them sets its criteria.

SELECT TEAM INFORMATION
 

For the fifth year in a row, we will be putting together a Grand Slam Select Team. We have a lot of success getting players regional exposure. We will only be putting together one team again this year. To play on the Select Team, you also have to be a participant in the Fall League. No exceptions will be made. To play on this team, you also MUST attend the Evaluation Camp. The team will be selected by the Grand Slam coaching staff and will consist of 16 players from each of our Fall League teams. We will compete in three out-of-town tournaments. 

 

CLINIC INFORMATION


Our high school clinics are designed for everyone. They meet 8 weeks throughout the fall and are designed to help players get more repetitions and receive quality instruction. Each week, we will focus on something different to assist in skill development. This year our focus on these clinics will also be providing a competitive environment that will assist in accelerating skill development. The Infield/Outfield Clinic is limited to 10 players, the Pitching/Catching Clinic is limited to 20 players, and the hitting clinic is limited to 25 players. Also, each player signed up for the Fall League has the opportunity to sign up for our High School Plyo Throwing Clinics at a discounted rate!
