Becoming a Slugger
Coaches involved in the program are all experienced in college and professional baseball with extensive baseball coaching experience. Our coaches have an extensive network of college coaches and professional scouts across the country to provide access for our players.
The summer season will run from late May through early August. Our top teams will practice and play six days per week. A commitment to Slugger baseball means it is your number one priority. There is no reason to miss a Slugger event. Slugger players will also participate in off season training and the fall program. If an athlete is participating in high school athletic programs, he will be excused from Slugger events during the school year.
Tournament competition is the focus of this team not only because it is the best method for development, but also because the quality of competition is not available without traveling to meet the competition. Tournament play lends itself to our need to meet the best across the country. In addition, this is the best way for college coaches to see and evaluate many players at one time.
The funding for the program comes from corporate sponsorships, fundraising projects, players' fees, and tournament income. Each family is required to pay a participation fee for each of their sons participating in the Sluggers Baseball Program. Parents and players will be responsible for transportation to and from tournaments, hotel rooms, and all meals.
