Team Selection and Grading

T Ball Air

Upon registration, players are sorted into teams according to date of birth. 

T Ball and Rookie Ball teams are created based on a variety of factors, but we can generally accommodate specific requests if you need your child to be with a friend or family member - make sure you let us know when registering.

Before the beginning of the season, we will be running a grading session for our Little League and Junior League players. This event is an overnight sleep over at the club and is used as a team building exercise and gives the coaches the opportunity to test all players' skill level.  It is a fun way to kick off the season!

We describe our work team as a family, and that’s how we treat everyone – simple as that. We are one family and we stick together through thick and thin. This experience changes athletes’ worlds upside down (for the better) and we use our experience to help personally support all our athletes through any challenge.

  1. No hassle – We make it simple
You may hear from several people that the American college system can be a minefield wrapped up in a spider’s web, and that is for good reason. You must navigate processes and policies, forms, coach interviews, college visits, transport, logistics to name a few, and understanding where to even begin can be chaotic.
The joy of our work is that we take all this hassle away from you, and guide you step by step through the maze. We work with you to make the experience not only easy, but actually enjoyable.
