DETAILS

The following is a short breakdown of the Swarm High School Program. It is designed to challenge the most accomplished players and elevate the play of all others. All spots are earned, and players are 100% accountable for their success or failure. Regardless which team you are placed on, the coaching is more intense, the details are more important, and the expectations are higher. Players with a true desire to excel will thrive and quickly realize the benefits of their hard work. Details are as follows:

COST
$275 Annual Club Fee, due as soon as a player joins
$195 Monthly Fee, starts in June and goes through January (fees start when player starts)
*Fees above include uniform, coach pay, facility, fields, insurance, registration and more. Tournaments, showcases, events and travel are extra.

PRACTICE
There will be two practices per week, one indoor and one outdoor, occasional classroom sessions and individual instruction. Additional instruction with position experts is available upon request and may include an additional fee based on time and commitment.

UNIFORMS
Swarm supplies Jerseys and Hats, players will need to supply pants, socks, belt and other accessories and equipment.

RECRUITING
Not only will every player get a complimentary recruiting profile from NCSA with instant access to over 35,000 college coaches, but professional video production as well. More importantly, all of our high school coaches have long standing relationships with college coaches, pro scouts, and recruiters and will advise and guide our players through every step of the process including the first email in 9th grade to declaring as a junior or senior. These vast networks will not only get us into elite national tournaments and showcases but bring coaches and their staffs to our doorstep. Our staff has sent hundreds of players to college and dozens of players to the MLB over the years and they are considered trusted resources in the industry. Many of our coaches just finished playing professionally or are still playing and remain highly active in the process.

TEAMS
Teams are tiered, and rosters are established by skill level. Gold and Blue is considered tier 1, Black and Gray tier 2, and Red Elite and SEP tier 3. The higher the tier, the more competitive the team. All teams will carry 12-14 players to make sure we have enough players for events. A player’s skill level is the primary factor in team placement, but other factors such as team needs, availability, and tenure may be factored in.

It is important to understand that teams must be successful in elite tournaments to keep their good standing with the organization and be invited back. Winning teams lift the entire organization and that is why it is essential to compete in every game. Being competitive is a learned skill and all of our team’s train to win. Our practices will mirror that of the best local, regional, and national high school programs and similar age teams will often train together. Team drills, group drills and individual drills are written in advance and the various coaches work seamlessly to maximize team and player development. Practice usually last two hours and there is never a minute wasted.

SEP and Red Elite will play in the most competitive tournaments and travel most frequently. Black and Gray will also compete in certain highly competitive events, but mostly play in local and regional showcases and tournaments. Blue and Gold will mainly play in local events and focus on development. There will be events in all months leading up to high school tryouts and a larger roster will ensure there is no overuse injuries.
