2022 Prospect Evaluation Camps

What is a Prospect Evaluation Camp? Our 2022 Prospect Evaluation Camps will take place all over the Northwest for the grad classes 2023-2027. 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 for recruiting purposes. Attending a Prospect Evaluation Camp allows our qualified BBNW staff to fully evaluate you as a player. Our staff consists of current and former college coaches and scouts 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 four registration options:

  • Pitcher Only ($150) – Players will 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. You will participate in BAR testing and throw a bullpen for video. Velocity and spin rates will also be captured and added to your player profile.
  • Position Player ($200) – Those who register as a Position Player are allowed to workout/be filmed at ONE fielding position. This should be the primary position you train and play in your spring/summer season. You will also be filmed take batting practice and go through BAR testing. Offensive and defensive velocities will be captured and added to your profile.
  • Position Player + Additional Position ($240) – Players for this registration type will be able to workout/be filmed at TWO different defensive positions. This is intended for someone who plays two completely different positions (i.e. catcher and outfield). If the positions are similar, like (3B and SS),  we suggest you do not register for the additional position and only workout at one of the two.  A Position Player + Additional Position will receive defensive velocities for both positions. You will also take batting practice and do BAR testing.
  • Position Player + Pitcher ($240) – Those who consider themselves to be a pitcher and position player can register to do both, which will allow you to workout at one fielding position and pitch. Offensive, defensive, and pitching velocities/spin rates will be captured and uploaded to your profile. You will also take batting practice and go through BAR testing.

What do I need to bring?  Players will be given a BBNW dri-fit top. All other equipment should be brought by the player. Wood bats are preferred for 2023 and 2024 grads but we want you to use what you are most comfortable with.

  • Baseball pants, hat, socks, belt
  • Helmet, bat, glove, catchers gear (if applicable)
  • Baseball cleats and turfs
  • Lunch or snack
  • Water and/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
  • L-Drill
  • Medicine Ball Throw (6 lbs)

What events does attending the 2022 Prospect Evaluation Camp make me eligible for?

  • Arizona Fall Classic

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 March and continue to be sent throughout the summer as players are recommended to us.
