How many positions can I tryout for?
You are allowed to workout at ONE fielding position. This should be the primary position you train and play in your Spring/Summer season. Players are also allowed to pitch in the workout if wanting to be considered as a pitcher. For example, you can workout at 3B and pitch but cannot workout at 3B and Catcher. We also have an option to workout as a Pitcher Only 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.
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. Twitter – BaseballNW / Facebook – Baseball Northwest.
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
- 30 Yard Dash
- Broad Jump
- Medicine Ball Throw (6 lbs)
What events does attending the Prospect Evaluation Camp make me eligible for?

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.
