High School Fall Select

The Slammers program is specifically designed to guide and enhance players who have the goal of playing college or professional baseball.

The Slammers High School Fall Select program provides players an excellent learning atmosphere, competition and exposure for its participants.

Slammers instructors are former Major League, minor league and collegiate players and coaches with over 70 years of combined baseball experience. Many of which are also professional scouts. The combination of our instructors, coaches, facilities, and schedule make our program the #1 Fall program in the Region.

If you are considering a Fall program for your son and he is committed to playing baseball after High School, then please take the time to compare what Slammers has to offer. Slammers wants all players and parents to realize that this program is a major commitment and that we emphasize that academics come first.

In the fall, exposure is a major part of the recruiting process. Slammers will travel to national tournaments in California, New Mexico, Georgia, Florida and Arizona.

Slammers has bids to the  Arizona Fall Classic events. We also compete in Perfect Game events in Georgia and Arizona. Slammers has an exclusive bid to the Perfect Game WWBA Championships in Jupiter, Florida. This tournament is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the country. In addition, Slammers will be attending the Wilson Premier Championships in Florida and Arizona. We have received the invitation to the Wilson Premier Championships as a result of our partnership with Wilson/Demarini. We are the only organization in the state that will be attending this event.

We know our unique program provides the necessary skills, competitiveness, experience and exposure needed to advance players beyond high school. This gives players who’ve decided to focus solely on baseball the additional opportunity to compete at the highest level.

In the 2016 class Slammers had 36 players and 35 of those players went on to play college baseball with 15 of those players committing to D1 programs.

The Slammers Fall Program will be held at our Englewood and Broomfield locations. The program is comprised of 10-12 teams. We try to keep players playing within their grade level. These teams will work out two times a week indoor at our indoor facilities and one day a week outside working on defense. During the two indoor workouts each player will work out with Slammers instructors on hitting, pitching and fielding as well as with the Strength & Conditioning coaches.

In the past 13 years, our program has had 30 players drafted with 21 of these players going on to sign professional contracts; and Luke French, Taylor Rogers, and Aj Schugel reaching the Major Leagues.

Fieldlevel allows Slammers to connect with over 2000 college coaches and deliver a player’s profile to them with the click of a button.

This is program is reliant on Slammers’ staff and college coaches communicating with one another.

This allows the recruiting staff to monitor, adjust and suggest which colleges are a good fit for the players to communicate with. Families can also use Sports Recruits to research any and all information about every college in the country quickly and easily. This program will allow both the player and Slammers to share the recruiting process workload while allowing family members to see how the process is moving along
