Coast to Coast Baseball would like to invite local players (ages 10-18) to one of our upcoming tryout events. At the tryout, our staff will evaluate your skills in four areas: hitting, fielding, arm strength and speed.
Since the summer of 2001, over 2500 athletes (ages 11-12, 13-14, 15-16 & 17-18) from 46 different states have participated in the Coast to Coast Baseball program. Our alumni now compete at every level of collegiate baseball, and even professionally. Players who are accepted to the program may choose to represent the USA in competition in Puerto Rico, or work with top college coaches and pro scouts at one of our Florida or Arizona Camp & Showcase events held at a MLB spring training complex.
In addition to the tryout, an instructional hitting camp will be held the same day. The goal of the camp is to help players improve hitting fundamentals as well as their mental approach at the plate.
Events will be held at: Rock Valley College, Rockford, IL on Monday, July 30; Illinois Central College, Peoria, IL on Tuesday, July 31 and Rend Lake College, Ina, IL on Thursday, August 2nd. In all three event locations, the tryout begins at 10:00 a.m. and the hitting camp begins at 2:00 p.m.
For more information, players and parents can visit our website. Register for any of the events on the website or by calling the office at www.CoastTo CoastAthletics.com or 740-373-4455.
