What is select baseball?
Select baseball is a perfect outlet for players who have a self-motivated desire to compete in general, and a love for baseball specifically. These types of players will enjoy their experience in in a select program. Please read below so you can make your decision.
Again, select baseball is competitive. Your child should be in the top third of players of similar age levels before trying out for a select team. Coaches in select move quickly in an attempt to teach high level fundamentals and strategy allowing the team to compete more effectively. SYAA select teams take pride in development of players.
On a select team parents and players must be ready to focus on playing a position that helps the team. There is no guaranteed rotation of positions and not every child will be given the opportunity to be a pitcher, first baseman, etc. Playing time may not be equal amongst players. Some may play many more innings than others. The positions will be determined by the coaching staff with the goal being to maximize each players abilities and make the team competitive. If you choose to participate in the select program, you must support the team and commit to not being a source of conflict with the coaching staff. Our recreation program offers an outlet if you are looking for a better opportunity to have rotational lineups allowing each player a chance to be a pitcher, etc.
Select teams require players to practice more often and play more often. The year usually lasts from January (practices) to mid-July. During this time the expectation is that the player will be present for practice and games.
If offered a spot on the fee the player will have 24 hours to except and pay a $200 deposit to confirm their spot on the team. While costs vary depending on sponsors and fundraising opportunities you should expect to pay anywhere from $600-$1,000 per player. This does not include if your team has an out-of-town tournament, your travel costs would be separate. As a select parent you are expected to help in any way possible with fundraising, sponsorship, etc.
Select baseball is competitive and a large time commitment due to numerous practices and games. It is important for parents and players to understand this is a competitive league. The recreation program provides an opportunity to continue development of fundamental skills along with less of a time and financial commitment.
