About Select30 Program
The Select30 program is the most comprehensive player identification program in the country. The S30 is managed by the Select 30 Task Force which is comprised of former professional players, current and former college coaches, current and former scouts, and baseball industry experts. Throughout the season, at Select30 Super NIT Events hosted across the country, the Select30 Task Force will evaluate players on the 5 tools of baseball during ‘live’ game situations to identify the S30 Championship Prospects. Chosen players will be issued a ‘Golden Ticket’ from a Select30 Task Force officially inviting them to participate in the S30 Championships July 22 – 29, 2018 at USSSA Space Coast Complex in Viera, Florida. Players participating in the 9U – 12U divisions will attend July 22 – 25 with Top Prospect Games on July 26. Players participating in the 13U & 14U divisions will attend July 25 – 28 with Top Prospect Games on July 29.
It is the mission of the S30 program to create opportunities for elite-level amateur baseball players to showcase their skills in ultra-competitive settings, and provide resources to educate and empower athletes, their parents, and coaches. The Select30 is committed to providing athletes the necessary tools and a platform for which they can accomplish their dreams in baseball, education and beyond.
To assist with the player identification efforts, Team Managers participating in the Major divisions of 9U – 14U will be able to place their top players onto the ‘Watch List’ prior to each event. The Select30 Task Force will take the ‘Watch List’ into consideration when identifying players for the Select30 Program, however the ‘Watch List’ does not automatically qualify a player for the Select30 Program or inhibit a player not on the list from being selected to participate
At the S30 Championships, players will go through daily fundamental workouts administered by the Select30 Task Force and former Professional Players. This formal instruction will include Infielder and Outfield mechanics, positioning/throwing; Catcher mechanics, foot work, blocking/throwing; Pitcher education on arm health, training/preparation; Hitting for power, situational hitting/moving runners, base running and stealing. In addition to this pro-style workouts each morning, participants will also play scouted instructional games each afternoon. At the conclusion of the workouts and games, former Professional Players along with the Scouting Task Force will choose two 15 player teams in each age division to play in the S30 Top Prospect Games.
The cost of the Select30 Championships is a non-refundable incidental fee of $395 in which each participant receives two jerseys and a New Era cap. Additionally, players chosen to participate in the S30 Top Prospect Game will also receive a special Top Prospect Jersey and New Era Cap as well as an Official S30 Top Prospect Ring.
