Cascade Baseball Club and Sunday Showcase


I am excited to announce a new baseball program we are rolling out this year. It’s called the Cadet Baseball Club. (CBC). The Cadet Baseball Club is designed for the baseball family looking for a more competitive baseball experience, but still affiliated with our youth league and community.  Some of the programs within this club we have done for several years, some just a few, and we are proud to offer a new program starting this year. We have just put a solid structure around each age group.

Sunday Showcase is an additional opportunity for players in CYL recreational program to be on a team in which the players practice more, play additional games and compete against other leagues in a stronger competitive environment. Players must try out for the team, pay additional fees above and beyond the normal CYL registration fees, and have team activities in the fall and winter leading up to the season. The Sunday Showcase season is played simultaneously as the recreational season is played until the end of the recreation league season and may extend after the recreation season. Sunday Show case players will play on CYL recreational teams as well as being a member of the Showcase team.


What we are offering:

6u- Rec All Stars- This team with be formed at the midway point of the rec season. The coach has the option of forming the team based on a tryout or coaches recommendation.

7u- Sunday Showcase- This team will hold tryouts in late July or early August. These players will compete in our rec league as well as participating on the Sunday Showcase team.


8u- Sunday Showcase- This team will hold tryouts in late July or early August. These players will compete in our rec league as well as participating on the Sunday Showcase team.


9u- Sunday Showcase- This team will be formed in late July or early August. The coach of these teams will have the option of retaining current players and offer a tryout. The tryout can be a team tryout or just a tryout for available spots. These players will compete in our rec league as well as participating on the Sunday Showcase team.


10u, 11u, 12u- Cadet Travel Club- These teams will be formed in late July or early August. The coach of these teams will have the option of retaining current players or offer a tryout. The tryout can be a team tryout or just a tryout for available spots. These players will not be required to participate in our rec league. The CBC is still affiliated and under the umbrella of the CYL. The CBC pays CYL a fee to cover amenities such as insurance and maintenance of facilities.


*These teams have the option of offering practice or joining a league in the fall.

*These teams have mandatory winter workouts. Times and dates are determined by the coach.

*Teams have the option of offering or requiring individual hitting or pitching lessons. Cost may be additional to player fee.

*Coaches will be determined by the Baseball Director.

*While the goal of these teams is to develop as many Cadets as possible; In the event of a coach not being able to field a competitive team or not being able to fill a roster, they may go outside of the Cascade boundaries to search for players to fill the team.

Sunday Showcase

 

Showcase Baseball/Softball

Showcase Baseball and Softball Program Description

Sunday Showcase is an additional opportunity for players in CYL recreational program to be on a team in which the players practice more, play additional games and compete against other leagues in a stronger competitive environment. Players must try out for the team, pay additional fees above and beyond the normal CYL registration fees, and have team activities in the fall and winter leading up to the season. The Sunday Showcase season is played simultaneously as the recreational season is played until the end of the recreation league season. Sunday Show case players will play on CYL recreational teams as well as being a member of the Showcase team.

Each Showcase roster and coaching staff will be dissolved after the conclusion of each season, and new tryouts for players will take place at the conclusion of all star play and end of season tournaments. For example: the 2016 Showcase teams will hold try outs in August/September of 2017 once all teams from CYL have completed end of season tournaments and all star tournaments, and once school has started so that all kids are assured of being present.

Sunday Showcase is a developmental opportunity and experience for players that currently have an advanced skill set that allows them to be challenged more by their coaches and introduced to new additional skills that will help prepare them for future baseball experiences.

Showcase games are typically played on Sundays in the spring and summer. In order to play at high levels the teams will practice in the winter months. CYL understands many players play other sports (CYL encourages playing multiple sports) in the Fall and Winter but if no conflicts, request players make effort to get to team activities. Players should make an attempt to attend practice however the winter workouts are optional.

Teams: Each age group 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 will be permitted to have (1) or (2) teams if enough players desire to participate and managers commit to leading the team. Each team will have a maximum of 12 players, thus if there are enough players in an age group to field two teams of 12, then 24 players may participate from each age group.

Player Evaluations: Evaluations will occur in August or September. Evaluations will be specific to age group and only players of the same age will go thru evaluations together. Evaluations may be on 1 or more dates as determined by the eval staff. The eval staff will be made up of 2-3 individuals that do not have a son in the age group that is being evaluated. Some examples would be the High School staff or the Showcase staff of the age group above those players trying out. The Showcase Committee and the Player Development officer will organize and assign the Evaluation staff for each age group. The evaluation process will include skills, drills, and scrimmage game(s). The evaluation process may or may not be the same depending on player ages. The Evaluation staff will make written notice to their intended age group with regard to dates, times, agendas and communicate directly with parents. The Evaluation staff will provide the Showcase Committee and the Player Development Officer a ranking of all players at the end of tryouts. Optimal try out days are Sundays with the necessary exclusion of calendar events that would significantly affect attendance.

Player and Manager selection: After the ranking reports are received from the Evaluation Staff, the oversight committee and the Player Development Officer will then select the Managers. The oversight committee and the Player Development officer will then select the players for each team based on the combination of the evaluations, end of season evaluations (for years after 2011) and recommendations by Recreational and/or SSC Manager and Coaches or All Star Manager and Coaches. Factors in selection will include but not be limited to ability, availability, attitude and team needs. The oversight committee and the Player Development Officer will make the final selections for each team. The player selection and placement shall be completed by Oct 1.

Player expectations: Attend practice and winter work outs to learn, practice, and executing the fundamental skills of hitting, throwing, catching, base running, situational baseball and all other aspects of the game. Playing in a minimum of 2 innings (6 outs) and one at bat as is the minimum game play requirement.

Parent expectations: This is a voluntary program which does not guarantee equal playing time for all players in any way similar to the Recreational base ball league. Playing time is determined by the Manager. He/She will determine the best batting order most conducive to scoring runs, determining the best defensive alignment according to players’ s ability, determining when to have players pitch/catch according to players’ ability.

Financial: Parents will be required to pay an additional fee once the player is selected to the team. This will cover additional uniforms, eqt, tournaments and umpire fees. There may be an additional fee for winter work outs.
