Welcome to SBG Sox 

Welcome Aboard!

SBG Sox HS Showcase Program is introducing additional Regional Teams as part of the overall program. To ensure that everyone fully understands the program, we are re-sending this Welcome Letter to everyone (some may be receiving their Welcome Letter for the first time today).  Here is a quick breakdown of the different schedules: 

 

National Teams will play six events - four of those events are National, played in Hoover, Memphis and Atlanta. Two events will be more local, such as the Annual Sox Challenge in Jackson. The membership for National Teams:

  • $2,400 for returning players 

  • $2,600 for first year players 

Regional teams will play six events - four of those events will be more local, such as JUCO and small MS colleges such as William Carey University, Tulane University and JUCOs such as Jones College. Two events will be National Events played in Hoover, AL. The membership for Regional Teams:

  • $1,800 for all players

Discussing with many parents, players, coaches and recruiters, we understand that a "one size fits all" model doesn't exactly fit everyone's expectations and summer family schedules. We created the Regional Team option to better provide a summer experience that meets the expectations of more families, reducing travel and time while still playing in front of college recruiters at every event. 

__________________________________________________________________________

 

 

We have received your  acceptance to play in the SBG MS Sox Showcase Program next summer. 

 

To all of our returning players...welcome back! And for those new to the SBG Sox Program...welcome aboard!

 

We use several methods of communicating, with email one of the most important. For players, please make sure that your parents are receiving emails - if not, they can just send their email address to this address and it will get added to the group. It's important that everyone receive the same information at the same time.

 

Our annual survey of players and families from the 2021 summer came in at a 98.4% satisfaction rate, with some recommendations that we worked on to continually improve the experience. New for next summer:

  • SBG Sox has announced a new partnership with Under Armour for jerseys and gear. The Team Store will be integrated to provide quicker turnaround of all products with unique, high quality products at affordable prices. 

  • A new Recruiting Profile Page on the SBG Sox website will accumulate recruiting information for all players including links to performance stats for PG and PBR profiles. Integrated with our immersive Social Media program will help ensure maximum exposure for all players - with an easy to find page for all recruiters and scouts. 

  • SBG Sox has taken a hard look at all events to ensure consistent competition at all events we play, using input from recruiters, scouts and coaches to ensure maximum exposure.

These enhancements together with our stellar coaching, recruiting and support staff continues the standard of excellence with SBG Sox that has seen over 80 players commit to play in college in just the last two summer seasons.
