Event Description: 
Our 2024 Prospect Evaluation Camps will take place all over the Northwest for the grad classes 2025-2029. These one-day camps include a pro-style workout consisting of batting practice, fielding, catching, and pitching; Baseball Athletic Rating testing; and edited video clips of each player. Our specially designed Prospect Evaluation Camps are a way for you to build your “baseball resume” by showcasing your third-party verified measurables and edited video.

Why I should attend a Prospect Evaluation Camp:
By attending a Prospect Evaluation Camp, you will receive a player profile on the Baseball Northwest website with your video clips, BAR score, and velocities from the workout. These profiles can be sent to college coaches and scouts to aid in your recruiting process. Attending a Prospect Evaluation Camp also allows our qualified BBNW staff to fully evaluate you as a player and provide you with honest feedback and an unbiased opinion of your abilities. 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, and so that coaches can see your progression.

Other events I am eligible for by attending a PEC:
By attending a PEC, you are also eligible for an invitation to the Northwest Championships which hosts the largest gathering of college recruiters and professional scouts at a Northwest amateur tournament. This event is a weekend showcase tournament in which 600 of the top Northwest athletes compete against each other. Attending a PEC also makes you eligible for an invitation to other national tournaments, many of which Baseball Northwest holds an exclusive Northwest bid. Players will also be eligible for consideration for exclusive national-level events only offered through Baseball Northwest like the Arizona Fall Classic and the Arizona Draft Prospect Classic.

Number of positions I can workout at:
There are four registration options

(1) Pitcher Only

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 the evaluation. Pitching velocities, spin rates and video will be captured and added to your player profile.

(2) Position Player

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.

(3) Position Player + Additional Position

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.

(4) Position Player + Pitcher

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.

How does the BAR work?

Baseball Northwest and Eric Trice 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.

BAR Advanced Search

What does the BAR test?

The BAR evaluates a baseball player’s explosive speed, agility/quickness, and rotational power.  The 5 tests performed are:

  1. 60 Yard Dash (Laser timed)
  2. 30 Yard Dash (Laser timed)
  3. Broad Jump
  4. L-Drill
  5. Medicine Ball Throw (6 lbs) 

Where can I find protocols for the BAR?

Players can find all BAR protocols at https://baseballnorthwest.com/the-bar-protocols

What do I do with my BAR score?

What you can measure, you can improve!

Now that you have your BAR, you have a snapshot of your overall athleticism level.  Next step, set athletic goals and implement ways on how to improve in the desired tested area(s).

Disclaimer: The BAR is just one tool of many that Baseball Northwest staff uses to evaluate you as player. A high BAR score does not automatically guarantee you an invite to a Baseball Northwest event.
