Interested in joining a BPA travel baseball team here in Orange County? Below is a list of our upcoming tryouts. We will be offering virtual travel baseball team tryouts for ages 7-12 in Orange County, and 9-14 in the Inland Empire.
Headquartered in Orange County, CA with teams in South OC- San Juan Capistrano/Laguna Niguel, North OC-Tustin/Irvine, Inland Empire- Rancho Cucamonga, San Diego- Carlsbad, Sacramento, Arizona, Florida, & Mississippi. The BPA club travel baseball team program is offered for ages 7-18 and designed to develop and mold athletes for college baseball. The high school teams will attend various college showcase events such as Wilson Premier, USA Baseball, and various private workouts across the country in front of various Division-1, D2, & D3 collegiate baseball programs across the USA. In some cases, some players will get drafted professionally right out of high school and in the MLB 2019 Draft, BPA had 6 players drafted by Major League Baseball.
BPA was founded on the premise of providing an opportunity of top instruction, for players that have a desire to play the game beyond a recreational level. Our purpose is to ensure players learn to play the game the right way and compete at the highest level. We aspire to positively influence a player’s next-level opportunity by providing them with the knowledge and skills required to play the game to the maximum of their potential.
Seeing someone miss an opportunity in their life, especially when its something they have so much passion and desire to be great at, in our eyes, is a travesty. Preventing this from happening to our players, and continuing to push of program alumni, beyond where they ever could of dreamed of playing is why we do what we do.
Through high-paced and intense practices, we focus on the physical and mental details of the game, with an emphasis on accountability. Optimal learning environments occurs when one is placed out of their comfort zone, and operating at the edge of their ability. Our highest priority is to at all times create an environment of care, transparency and concentrated discomfort, to make sure a player has the opportunity to maximize their potential.
We believe a coach’s duty is to prepare their players to not only be successful at their current level, but advance them to the next level in a way for them to thrive. We must develop genuine relationships, so we may be an ongoing resource as our players move through their playing career, and excel beyond high school.
We offer team programs year round and if you were unable to attend an actual tryout event, you are welcome to attend a practice to get evaluated! We have teams year round and play in a condensed internal 2-season format (Summer/Fall & Winter/Spring). We put a heavy emphasis on developmental training with limited arm usage during the months from Dec 1- Jan 15th and focus on footwork, strength, speed, and agility with glove work, and of course Hitting a lot of baseballs! . Typically our 2 heavy recruiting periods run from May 1- June 31st, & Nov 1-Dec 31st.
