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.

Not happy with your current experience with other High School Club programs?  You are in LUCK!!  Slammers is the #1 high school select program in the region!! We commit more players to college to play baseball, and specifically more D1 players, than any other program in the region. 

We will have have 14-16 teams this fall at the 18U, 17U, 16U , and 15U divisions, comprising of the following GRAD classes: 2023, 2024,2025, and 2026. Our coaches are some of the best coaches in the country providing the best instruction and preparation to our athletes in getting them ready for the next level.

If you are serious about playing in college, want to work and get better, and want to go to the BEST showcase tournaments in the country, than Slammers is the place for you.

We are looking for the BEST most COMPETITVE players in the region to join are teams.  Spots are limited so do not miss this opportunity! 

As always, we are looking for committed baseball players that have and want to play at the highest level.  

14U/8th Grade Slammers HS Fall Select

Many have asked what the next steps for 14U/8th grade players for this summer and next fall are. This summer ALL players will still play on their current Slammers teams, but for this coming fall for ALL 2026 Grads, we will have a workout/tryout on May 31st, 2022, to evaluate players to make the HS 2026 teams for this coming fall.

This is for current 2026 Grad class (14U) or 8th graders in and out of the Slammers Program. This workout will help us evaluate the 2026 Grad Class players to put them on a HS Fall Select team. All players who want to play in the fall and even those that are not going to play this fall due to football or some other sport, but want to play the following summer, should attend this workout/tryout.

Also, we understand that many 8th graders are already getting emails or contacted by their prospective High school coaches. The question is, do you have to play this summer for them….NO. Do you have to play this fall for them….NO. Each one of the high schools will have winter workouts in 2023 and tryouts to formulate their spring teams for 2023. Thais when you need to make sure your are all in with them and attending those winter workouts.

Now, If you feel you want to play for them in the fall, we get it. We will see you in the future when you decide to come back to Slammers. But, under no circumstances do you leave your 14U Slammers team in a lurch this summer. That is the quickest way to not have a spot here in the future. Enter the right way, and always leave the right way and you will always have a spot here at Slammers.

So, while we cannot guarantee that ALL current Slammers players make a team, we can tell you that this is our goal, and we have only had one year where we had a few kids that we could not place on a team.

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 2019 class Slammers has 60 players going on to play college baseball with 8 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 14-16 teams. We try to keep players playing within their grade level, grad class. 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.

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
