Every student-athlete needs an objective, third party assessment from a reliable source when looking for opportunities to further their career in baseball. Sign up for our next Player Assessment Camp where our highly respected coaches will assess your running speed, arm strength, hitting and fielding abilities. Your results will be made available to college coaches in the region and will also be posted as verified by us on our web site for you to use as a credible source in your recruiting plan.

Every camp includes a recruiting seminar by our partner, the National Collegiate Scouting Association, through which you can connect with over 2600 baseball coaches. You will learn the 5 things you need to know and the 5 things you need to do to simplify your college recruiting process.

Preparing for Assessment Camp

  • Why is it important to attend an assessment camp? +

    You will receive an honest, fair, unbiased third party assessment from our staff and they will make recommendations on how you can improve your game.

    Top prospects will be ranked by graduation class and skill test results, which will be sent to college coaches and MLB scouts in the region.

    Top prospects will be invited to participate in the Wisconsin High School TOP PROSPECT summer showcase attended by college coaches and MLB scouts.

    Top prospects will also receive an invite to play on the Wisconsin All-Stars (www.WisconsinAllStarsBaseball.com) summer and fall national baseball teams.

    Our coaching staff wants to give you the tools you need to become a successful student athlete so that you can further your career in baseball. We invite you to attend one of the Player Assessment Camps we will be holding throughout our state this spring.

  • What should I be doing during the off-season +

    Ted Williams, (H.O.F.) once said “Baseball players are not made during the season. They are made during the off season.” If you want to play baseball at the next level you have to work hard during the off season by going to camps, attending position specific clinics and by taking lessons from coaches that have a solid reputation developing players that are playing baseball at the next level. Your hard work during the off season determines if you will play and will show on the detailed stats we take at our Assessment Camps.

    Players should be working hard during the off season on improving their game before signing up to register for an assessment camp. At assessment camps your baseball skills and abilities will be evaluated. All assessment camps evaluate players based upon the “5 TOOLS”.

    The 5 tools are:

    Arm Strength / Throwing Ability (Arm Speed, Exchange, Release, Throwing Accuracy, etc)

    Range / Fielding Ability (Body Control, Double Play Skills, Footwork, Quickness, etc)

    Speed / Base Running Ability (Footwork, Overall Speed, Quickness, etc)

    Hitting for Power

    Hitting for Average (Balance, Bat Speed, Explosion, Hitting to all Fields, Length of Swing, Power, etc)

    On the mound here are common fundamentals evaluated: (Arm Speed, Balance, Each Pitch thrown for Consistent Strikes, Movement of Pitches, Overall Mechanics, Velocity, etc)
    Wisconsin Baseball Report has talked to many college coaches. They have said that kids should be at least 80 plus mph to play at the next level. Players should “google search” a throwing program that increases velocity and then implement that program during the off season. At assessment camps players should be able to take constructive criticism from coaches. The whole purpose of an assessment camp is to evaluate your baseball skills and abilities and to help you identify your weaknesses (areas that you will need to improve so you can play at the next level). Once you receive your assessment players need to work hard at improving their baseball skills.
    Ted Williams once said this about baseball. “Baseball is more than a game. It is a commitment to excellence.” Be committed to being the very best you can be. Never sell yourself short. Set goals for yourself and work very hard to obtain your goals. Be committed to excellence every time you walk onto a baseball field.

     

  • What should I bring to Assessment Camp? +

    Players that attend WBR assessment camps will be given a camp t-shirt. They should wear baseball pants, bring cleats and gym shoes in case it is raining the camp will be indoors. Position players should bring their glove and baseball bat. You can use a wood bat or a metal bat. Catchers need to bring their gear and glove. If the camp is out doors depending on the weather players might need a warm up jacket or a sweatshirt.
