12U National Team Tryouts
The USA Baseball 12U Open Development Camp will feature curriculum developed by current and former national team staff. This camp will serve to deliver Team USA training techniques while focusing on player development, evaluation, and most of all, fun. The Open Development Camp will also serve as an identification event for the 2014 12U National Team player selection process.
The 12U National Team Tryouts is the most efficient way to be recognized by USA Baseball in your region. Ranked as the top baseball program in the world by the International Baseball Federation (IBF), making USA Baseball’s Watch List should be every participant’s goal coming out of this tryout. From the 12U National Team Tryouts at Holman Stadium, there will be seven players selected to the national Watch List. Being put on this list means that USA Baseball will consider these players first for any new tournaments or international games that will be played. This is a tremendous opportunity to be placed into the USA Baseball database. From there, the USA Baseball evaluators will track player progress and development.
All coaches at the 12U National Team Tryouts are former collegiate or professional players. The tryouts will consist of evaluations and instructions in the following skill sets:
- Arm strength
- Hitting drills
- Pitching mechanics, velocity, control, and off-speed pitches
- Situational defense
- Base running
