The Future Stars Series nationwide search for amateur baseball talent is the initiative between New Balance and Program 15 to elevate the game of baseball by providing players across all economic levels an opportunity to reach their full potential through the training, development, and guidance of former MLB players, scouts, and coaches.
The Fall 2016 Future Stars Series camps and development sessions are open to all amateur high school aged players. Camps for players in the 10-14 age group will be added for the Spring 2017 sessions.
Players attending a Future Stars Series event will receive a full scouting report, developmental feedback and plan to assist in their long-term growth from scouts who have signed Major League players. Each player will also be evaluated for a potential invitation to participate in the National Trials and opportunity to be selected as a member of the National Team to play in an International World Series scheduled for the Summer of 2017 in Houston, TX.
The Future Stars Series Skills and Evaluation Camps consist of the following two-day combine structure.
Tools testing by position
Athletic strength and conditioning testing with instruction
Defensive skill player development by position
Hitting: on field and in Cages with instruction
Pitchers: arm care, long toss, PFP’s, pitching fundamentals, defensive instruction
Each Future Stars Series camp is led and attended by the Program 15 National Staff of Major League Veteran players, scouts and coaches including Jeremy Booth, Jesse Barfield, Trenidad Hubbard, Benji Gil, Delwyn Young, Chuck McElroy, Chip Ambres, Butch Baccala, Adam Czjakowski and others.
Program 15 President and Director of Development, Jeremy Booth stated, “Our program is specifically designed to develop each individual player’s ability to his full potential, then to get that player the results that their ability deserves. Our commitment is the same, whether it’s a young man with the desire to move from select ball to playing in high school, from high school to being recruited by a Division 1 college or from college to MLB draft pick.”
The Future Stars Series Skills and Evaluation Camps are hosted by a selected regional college program or summer league and will serve as a recruiting showcase opportunity as well.
