2021 Prospect Evaluation Camps
What is a Prospect Evaluation Camp? Our 2021 Prospect Evaluation Camps will take place all over the Northwest for the grad classes 2022-2026. These camps include a pro-style workout consisting of batting practice, fielding, catching, and pitching; Baseball Athletic Rating testing; and edited video clips of each individual player. Our specially-designed Prospect Evaluation Camps are a way for you to build your “baseball resume” showcasing your third party verified measurables and edited video.
Why should I attend a Prospect Evaluation Camp? By attending a Prospect Evaluation Camp, a player will receive a player profile on the Baseball Northwest website with their edited video clips, BAR score, and velocities from the workout uploaded to their profile. These profiles can be sent to college coaches and scouts for recruiting purposes. Attending a Prospect Evaluation Camp allows our qualified BBNW staff to fully evaluate you as a player. Our evaluators are college coaches from all over the Northwest. They are experienced, knowledgeable, enthusiastic men who can provide you honest feedback and an unbiased opinion of you as a player. We encourage players to attend a Prospect Evaluation Camp each summer to record up-to-date video and measurable data so that we can more accurately promote you as a player.
How many positions can I workout at? There are three registration options – Pitcher Only, Position Player, and Two-way Player. A Pitcher Only will just workout as a pitcher at a discounted rate. Players who choose to workout as a Pitcher Only will not take batting practice or workout at a position in the field. Those who register as a Position Player are allowed to workout at ONE fielding position. This should be the primary position you train and play in your Spring/Summer season. Those who consider themselves to be a pitcher and position player can register as a Two-way player which will allow them to workout at one fielding position and pitch.
What do I need to bring? Players will be given a dri-fit top. All other equipment should be brought by the player. Wood bats are preferred but aluminum bats are acceptable.
- Baseball pants (gray or white), hat, socks, belt
- Helmet, wood/composite wood bat(s), glove, catchers gear (if applicable)
- Baseball cleats and turfs
- Lunch or snack
- Water or sports drink
Can I attend a PEC with a different grad class?
Yes. It is ideal if you are able to attend on the day of your grad class but if due to game schedule, etc. you need to attend with a different grad class it is okay to do so. During registration be sure to select the date you plan to attend (even if it doesn’t show your grad class).
Where will rainout information be posted?
We will post any rainout information on our website or social media accounts.
What is the BAR and how does it work?
Baseball Northwest and Trice Athletics have developed a series of sports-related athletic tests designed to capture the key aspects of athleticism in baseball. The Baseball Athletic Rating, or BAR, combines individual tests into a single percentile representing an athlete’s overall athletic ability. Your BAR score will show you how you rank compared to all athletes in your region that were tested in that particular year. If you test twice in one particular year, your best score on each individual test in that year will be combined for your best BAR score.
What does the BAR test?
The BAR evaluates a baseball player’s explosive speed, agility/quickness, and rotational power. The 5 tests performed are:
- 60 Yard Dash (laser timed)
- 30 Yard Dash (laser timed)
- Broad Jump
- Medicine Ball Throw (6 lbs)
What events does attending the 2021 Prospect Evaluation Camp make me eligible for?
- Northwest Championships
- Prospect Games
- Arizona Fall Classic
- Wilson Premier Classic
- Perfect Game: World Series, WWBA World Championship, Northwest Showcase
- Area Code Team Tryout (Kansas City Royals)
Does the PEC location I attend affect which team I may get invited to play for at the Northwest Championships?
No. Players are selected for teams based on their schools geographical location or position. You may occasionally be invited to play for a team out of your region, this is done to maximize playing time.
Is it advantageous to attend more than one PEC?
No. All PECs are structured the same.
When do PEC invites go out?
Invites are sent out via email beginning in February and continue to be sent throughout the summer as players are recommended to us.
How do I get an invitation to a PEC?
