Tryouts

The tryout process for Forward Athletics Baseball is open to any participants before the Spring and Summer seasons. There will be group tryouts on predetermined dates at our practice field. Each tryout consists of fielding and hitting exercises and a conversation with the coaches. Players are selected not simply by ability but by evaluating need, fit, and organizational alignment with the family. To register for a tryout, please fill out the form below, and a team member will contact you via email.

For private tryouts at any time during the season, please get in touch with our program director at [email protected]

Club Baseball Frequently Asked Questions

Club baseball is a competitive opportunity for athletes of varying skill levels to develop and refine their abilities through intensive training and high-level competition. It is a selective sport that requires players to attend a scheduled tryout and be chosen for a team based on their skill, athletic level, and potential.

 

This level of competition and training helps athletes improve their game, leading to increased success on and off the court.

 

Overall, club baseball provides a unique opportunity for athletes to pursue their passion for the sport and achieve their full potential.​​

At Forward Athletics Baseball, we support multi-sport athletes and recognize the value of cross-training through different sports. However, we encourage parents to be mindful that participating in multiple sports can create scheduling conflicts and potential burnout for the athlete.

 

While many of our athletes play multiple sports, especially in the younger age groups, it is crucial to communicate any scheduling conflicts with your coach to avoid any issues with commitment. We recommend providing a two-day notice for all missed practices and a two-week notice for any missed tournaments.

 

At Forward Athletics Baseball, we believe in developing well-rounded athletes who can excel in a variety of sports. We also prioritize our athletes' health and well-being, which is why we encourage open communication and transparency regarding scheduling conflicts.

At Forward Athletics Baseball, we prioritize providing athletes with quality practice time and instruction from our qualified coaches rather than guaranteeing playing time in tournaments. Our priority is to create a positive and inclusive environment that supports the growth and development of our athletes both on and off the field.​

 

We believe that playing time is earned through hard work and dedication. Athletes who attend practice regularly and show improvement in their skills will have more opportunities to play. Our coaches are encouraged to give every player a chance to contribute to the team during pool play matches.  As teams advance beyond pool play, coaches will reward players who have excelled when given opportunities earlier in the day.

Teams will receive one jersey, one belt, one pair of socks, one hat, and one practice shirt.

 

Other items, such as arm sleeves or water bottles, will be added when available.

At Forward Athletics Baseball, we take great care in selecting coaches who possess the requisite attributes to help our athletes reach their full potential. Our coaches are chosen based on their playing experience, knowledge of the game, coaching proficiency, enthusiasm, temperament, and strong interpersonal skills. 

 

We believe in creating a positive, encouraging learning environment for players and parents, where everyone feels comfortable and motivated to achieve their goals. We emphasize coaching through encouragement rather than intimidation, ensuring that athletes receive constructive feedback that supports their development.

 

At Forward Athletics Baseball, the safety and well-being of our athletes is our top priority. All our coaches have passed an extensive background screening.
