Baseball WA is excited to announce tryouts for the 2022 Rays Showcase Perth, which will take place at the start of January 2022.
After the success of this year’s program, we are looking forward to another fantastic showcase for our dedicated athletes.
The Rays Showcase is not just another baseball training camp or a normal National Youth Championship program. Athletes experience day to day life in an elite program supported and endorsed by the Tampa Bay Rays. The schedule mimics their spring training and the start of a minor league season - with a focus on athlete development both on and off the field.
Players will be surrounded by a range of opportunities to enhance their knowledge and abilities in key areas for success both locally and internationally.
The focus of this program is NOT for you sign a professional contract or go to US college, these are just opportunities that will come your way once you learn to:
● Compete fearlessly (even when you are terrified)
● be disciplined
● be organised
● be a great teammate and an even better person.
It will be your job as the player:
● to push yourself and hold yourself accountable when you could easily bluff your coach or yourself.
● To focus on what you can control and execute no matter how tough the situation.
● Use all of the amazing resources around you to improve your approach each and every day.
Goals and objectives:
● Learn to thrive in a daily training environment
● Create impeccable habits
● Learn the discipline required of an elite athlete
● Provide support and opportunities to learn
● Have lots of fun
● Commitment - doing the small things each and everyday will yield far greater results than doing the big things infrequently.
● Effort - try as hard as you can even when you think you might fail
● Measure only what you can control - if you can't control it, don’t worry about it. Focus on the process not the result.
● NO EXCUSES - plain and simple: don’t make them
● Balance - creating balance in your life is important, so make time for your family and friends, do your homework and make time for the things you love to do.
