The Slammers Select Youth Program is a Spring & Summer Program, which starts training in January, with games beginning in March and ending in July. The workouts are conducted at our Englewood and Broomfield locations.
The goal of this program is to provide each individual, and each team, specific training based on age and individual player’s and team’s ability. We will give every player consistent teaching day after day and year after year. Consistency is what matters the most when developing young athletes. This is what we have accomplished in the High School divisions with 95% of our players going on to play in College or Professional Baseball. Our goal and philosophy is to create an enviroment where every player has the opportunity to play at the next level.
Our youth teams will primarily play all tournaments with a few teams also playing league. Most of our select tournament teams compete in the Majors and AAA divisions. Parents can plan on playing in 11-12 tournaments per year with 1 to 3 of these tournaments being out of state events. Please take the time to review what we offer below.
