Late January is the official start of college spring practices, meaning college seasons are under way and the focus shifts from recruiting to winning a championship. The 2nd NCAA National Letter of Intent signing period for high school seniors opens April 2018.

Understanding the Recruiting Process is the First Step to Creating Opportunities.
HS Senior / Junior College: HS seniors and JC players – this is your last window to be recruited before the summer of 2018.
HS Juniors: The most productive time for high school players to be recruited is during their junior year. In this new era of recruiting, most elite players receive baseball scholarships during this time.
HS Sophomores / Freshmen: It is important for young players to have vision and direction, to be motivated, to gain experience, to learn the recruiting process, and to develop confidence performing on stage. Starting the recruiting process early provides great benefit. The majority of Trosky Scholarship players start the recruiting process their freshmen year.

TROSKY’S 6 CONCEPTS:
After working numerous showcase events across the west coast and being a college recruiter and professional baseball scout, Coach Trosky became frustrated with the typical format used by major showcase and recruiting organizations. Typical formats include:
— a lower number of college coaches in attendance and a lack of diversity (different levels of colleges) among them
— a low number of repetitions on both offense and defense
— a limited amount of game exposure for both pitchers and position players
— a lack of connection with the coaches attending the event.
Over the years it became clear that despite attending numerous events and spending thousands of dollars, the majority of high school players end up frustrated and empty handed. As a result, the Trosky Games Camps model was built.
The 6 core concepts included in Trosky Games Camps are:
1.) Multiple Games: Players participate in 2 games (a simulated game and a live game). With the peaks and valleys of baseball, multiple games give each player the opportunity to show consistency and/or to make important adjustments. This allows players to display a more accurate representation of their game.
2.) Repetition: Players take batting practice in the cages before the games. They perform in skills training sessions and perform numerous repetitions between innings.
3.) Relationships: Attending college coaches are on the field coaching and getting to know the players. Camp activities conclude daily with the College Coach’s Introduction, where players and parents have the opportunity to learn from the college coaches.
4.) Recruiting Information: Players and parents receive recruiting insight from active college recruiting coordinators and from recruiting specialist Nate Trosky. The informative talks conclude with a Q & A session. At the conclusion of camp activities, Coach Trosky is available to answer recruiting questions.
5.) Opportunity: Attending college coaches represent a wide range of colleges and universities (DI, DII, DIII, NAIA, and JC) giving each player the opportunity to be recruited by schools that meet his scholastic, financial, social, and athletic needs.
6.) Schedule Flexibility: Trosky Games Camps are flexible with the schedules of those who cannot attend the entire camp (if you have a special schedule request, we can accommodate). All players are free to come and go throughout the camp when they are not able to attend.
Each player must bring his own baseball equipment. Players should bring a glove, bat, batting gloves, helmet, cleats/spikes, running shoes or turf shoes, hat, and any other equipment they feel necessary to compete. Catchers must bring their own gear. Please mark name on all items. Trosky Baseball will not be responsible for lost items.
