SCS Tryout Information
Whether you are a returning player or new to our organization, it is very important that you understand the “why” behind the Steel City Select coaching staff as well as this organization. We are very passionate about this game and believe in the development plan we have put together to assist baseball and softball players in their improvement. We strive to give players the knowledge and training experience that most of us did not receive until college and beyond.
It is very important that players learn to have a growth mindset and turn their obstacles into opportunities to improve and self develop. They must learn to turn disappointment into determination, and frustration into focus. Focus is power, no matter what you are trying to achieve. Focus will allow players to reach another level of acting and thinking which will ultimately lead to developing our way to excellence.
Steel City Select will provide the best development opportunities through our high levels of instruction and competition. We believe in creating an energetic and disciplined atmosphere, while also encouraging respect, integrity, and personal growth. Our staff will always teach values. Values show up through times of adversity. Every player in our organization must be able to identify our core values as well as define who we are.
Lastly, your son must want this more than you do. Players must have a passion for the game of baseball. We are looking for players who are eager to learn and develop. We are very competitive but do not talk about performance from a winning or losing standpoint. We will prepare by focusing on the process and learning to play this game the right way one pitch at a time. We want players to get the idea of trying something out of their head and commit to mastering it.
Our staff would like to thank you for this opportunity to evaluate and work with your son. Whether you are selected or not, Steel City Select offers a wide variety of services including private lessons, team training, and various skill development programs. Not everyone will be selected for our teams but it is important players learn to embrace failure, and learn from it. Failure always comes before success.
