U18 AAA Swift Current 57’s Tryouts

Dear Prospective Baseball Players:

I would like to welcome you to the 2023 18U AAA Swift Current 57s baseball tryouts. These tryouts will be for all players interested in playing AAA baseball this spring/summer. Whether you are a returning player or new to the team I hope that you have all spent some time training and preparing for the upcoming tryouts. We will be running two skills based sessions on separate evenings, and depending on the number of players, potentially an intrasquad game as well.

Tryouts for this year’s team will be held on April 19-20 with locations pending. If we are able to be outside, they will be held at Kinsmen field from 4:30-6:30 both days. If we are unable to get outside, April 19th will be at the Stockade from 8:15-10:15, and April 20th at Prime Training 4:30-6:30. (Please wear baseball pants and bring all necessary equipment for the positions you wish to try out for. Indoor tryouts you can wear shorts/sweats)

The purpose of playing AAA baseball is to compete at the highest level available. With our entry into the AAA league, the expectation from our players is to be committed to the team for the entirety of the season. More information about team guidelines will be shared once the team is selected.

Practices will be held on Tuesday/Thursday with times to be announced. Our schedule consists of 30 games (15 home and 15 away), starting in May and concluding at the end of July. We will be partaking in the Sask Selects tournament, being held in Swift Current May 19-22.

The annual 18U AAA Provincial tournament will be held on July 28-30, with a host site yet to be determined. We will be required to earn a spot in this tournament, and teams will be determined by placing in the top 8 positions of the league standings.
