The SBG Sox Youth Program in all locations has posted the Tryout Schedule for the upcoming season.
For the 2021-2022 season that began last Fall, SBG Sox formed 33 youth baseball teams, and for the upcoming summer will field 25 High School Showcase teams. SSG Sox Softball teams have grown to nine teams as the Jackson division has opened play for its inaugural season.
Last Fall, over 1,200 players tried for the Youth Program, and that is expected to grow this season. In order to provide offer decisions sooner for all players, the format has changed this year to complete the tryouts earlier in July. Player should prepare for two hours from check in to completion of the workout, and bring plenty of water to stay hydrated.
All players interested in participating in an SBG Sox tryout should register online to assure that the staff has the player's information and contact information for follow up calls from the Sox coaches. Walk ups are always welcome - arrive early if possible to provide staff with player information.
New for this season is the SBG Sox team platform for teams that are interested in joining the SBG Sox platform. For more information about this program please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
