Program Overview

The Academy is a developmental program for players passionate about the game of baseball who are committed to taking their game to another level.  The Academy offers a comprehensive training curriculum that will significantly improve the critical skills necessary to succeed in the game of baseball.  The Academy’s program is also equally focused on developing each player’s knowledge and understanding of the mental side of the game (i.e. their “Baseball I.Q.).  Through the extensive use of video analysis and classroom instruction, The Academy’s professional coaching staff will be committed to insuring that every player steps on the diamond with a firm grasp of the fundamentals of the game.

TRYOUT FAQ

How long are tryouts?

Tryouts run for 90 minutes each.  

Tryout Cost:

The tryout fee is $40 new players and $20 for returning Academy players, which covers both tryouts.  

Are players required to attend both tryout sessions?

While players technically only have to attend 1 tryout session to be evaluated, we strongly encourage players to attend both tryouts in order to allow coaches/evaluators to more accurately assess their skills.  Attending multiple tryouts will also significantly enhance our ability to place players on the appropriate teams within The Academy program. 

How do we know if our child makes a team?

Within 24 hours after the final tryout, an email will be sent to all players notifying them of their status.  Some players (mostly returning players) may receive a “Commitment Letter” prior to the 2nd (final) tryout session, but in most cases decisions will be made after all tryouts have been concluded. 

What if I am unable to attend the scheduled tryout sessions:

If your child is unable to attend tryouts we can arrange a private tryout.  If you need to set up a private tryout please contact Chris at (781) 962-6655
