Fresh off a World Baseball Classic championship, interest in USA Baseball is at an all-time high! Seattle Elite Baseball is proud to help bring USA Baseball to the Pacific Northwest! We will be hosting a USA Baseball National Team Identification Series tryout camp on the Monday of the Art Wright Memorial Day tournament (Monday, May 29th). The camp will place an emphasis on player development and fun, and will serve to deliver Team USA training techniques to aspiring national team players. Athletes will be offered a unique training opportunity with a curriculum developed by current and former national team staff. Players from this event that are selected will advance to the Northwest NTIS All-Star game in late-June at the University of Washington. Ultimately, 14-18 players at each age group will be selected to represent the Northwest at the National Team Identification Series in North Carolina this August.
