Registration is now open for the sixth annual Vermont Baseball Coaches Association Junior Showcase to be held Thursday, June 22, 2017 at Castleton University's Spartan Field in Castleton, Vermont. Vermont high school baseball student-athletes who are in the 11th grade in 2016-17 will have the opportunity to display their skills and participate in a controlled game for New England and Northeast region collegiate baseball coaches. The first five showcases have widened exposure for many Vermont high school underclass student-athletes.
Juniors will have first priority for the 50 spots available in the showcase. If spots open up for sophomores (grade 10 in 2016-17), it will be by invitation only.
The showcase will be administered by VBCA member coaches. A registration form is attached.
On-field registration for the student-athletes begins at 11:30 a.m. with the first showcase workouts beginning at noon. Rain date for the event is the following week. The cost per student-athlete is $25, payable to the VBCA. Student-athletes can contact their coach for more information and for registration forms. Have players dressed and ready to play. T-shirts and batting helmets will be provided. Also have catchers bring their gear and all student-athletes should bring a water bottle.
Other questions- and requests for registration forms- can be sent to Bruce Bosley, VBCA executive director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. The deadline for registration is June 20, 2017. Sorry, no walk-ins, pre-registration is required to print a roster.
The fifth annual VBCA Showcase was held in June 2016 with 50 underclass student-athletes displaying their skills in front of coaches from 24 collegiate baseball programs at all levels from throughout the Northeast.
Over 70 former Vermont high school players were represented on 2017 NCAA Division I, II and III, and USCAA four-year baseball rosters. Several earned all-conference honors and participated or will participate with schools advancing to the NCAA Baseball Championship.
