Koa Summer 15U Collegiate Development Team

Program Description and Concept: The 15U Koa summer baseball program is designed for select student athletes finishing their freshman or sophomore season.  The focus for this group is to be competitive in 16U tournaments and 16U league.  This summer we’ll play approximately 30-35 games including four local tournaments.  This group will compete in two “preview” showcase tournaments at UMD/GW and Mt. St. Mary’s where we will play some games on college fields, and potentially have college coaches in attendance.  There will be conversations about what showcases and college camps to attend (and when) as well as general recruiting guidance.  Each team will have two professional coaches per game, which allows the parents to sit back and enjoy the show.  Both coaches have an extensive baseball background and played collegiately.

Koa’s Plan- To give each athlete the best possible chance to play college baseball, and to keep the core of team together for the next 7 seasons.

Season Summer Fall
2014 ~30-35 Games and 4 Tournaments at the 16U level ~8 NVTBL Double Headers + 2 practices p/week
2015 ~30-35 Games and 4 Tournaments at the 16U level ~8 NVTBL Double Headers + 2 practices p/week
2016 ~35 Games including 4 Showcase Tournaments at the 17U level – Featuring the national World Wood Bat in Atlanta ~6 NVTBL Double Headers + 2 practices p/week and 2 Fall Showcase Tournaments
2017 ~33 local games for Koa’s College Team in the MCBL (Maryland College Baseball League) Ready for College Baseball

 

Results- Koa’s 2014 graduating class has 8 players (with 2 more undecided) committed to play college baseball.   This is the exact program they followed since they were 15U athletes. Here is a list of some colleges the Koa seniors will be attending in the fall: Yale, Amherst, Lafayette, Emory, John’s Hopkins, Sewanee, McDaniel, and Macalister.

League Schedule: Exact schedule is TBD – games will begin the weekend of June 7th-8th and we will play ~18 league games around the beltway, in the Gibbs 16U League. These games will be scheduled around our summer tournaments.  We will have a few pre-season practices in May. All players are expected to arrive 90 minutes before games for our extensive player development practices.
