2018 ThunderJaxx Format Change

NO TRYOUTS SCHEDULED

*Contact eric@premiersportsacademy.org if you are interested in playing for the Jaxx*


Since 2010, the goal of the ThunderJaxx program was to offer a place to play for those who have the ability and drive to compete at a higher level. In 2010, we offered 1 team at the 16u level. In 2017, we had 6 teams: 12u, 13u, 14u, 16u baseball & 14u, 16u fastpitch. The strength and growth of our program has made it a great place for players to learn the parts of the game that may not be taught by others. While winning hasn’t been the number 1 factor in our program, we play to win every time we are on the field and have had great success in the previous few years. In focusing on the future of the program, we feel it is important to work on team development from year to year.

2018 Changes

In the past, all ThunderJaxx teams were coached by non-parent coaches throughout the winter training season as well as in the spring/summer competition season. Due to rising costs associated with running teams, and our goal of keeping player fees as affordable as possible, we have realized that we cannot offer to run teams this way any longer without dramatically increasing player fees. Our pricing for academy/non-parent coaching has always been a fraction of the cost of what other organizations charge for their teams (up to 65% less). Instead of raising fees, we are going to try another option which we think will continue to grow each player individually in the game, but will come at a much lower cost for players to participate. Here are the changes…

1.      Premier Sports Academy will “hire” 2-3 parents from the team as coaches and train them through special coaches clinics we will run.
2.     
Premier Sports Academy instructors will run workouts through the winter training season that players and coaches are encouraged to attend.
3.     
Premier Sports Academy WILL NOT have coaches travel to tournaments with the team. All tournaments will be coached by parent coaches.
4.      During the tournament season, parent coaches can set up 1 practice/week at the Academy (when available) for no charge.

***If you would like to bring an entire team to play as ThunderJaxx, please email eric@wisconsinbaseballacademy.com to discuss more. If you do this, your players DO NOT need to tryout.
