SCHEDULES & REGISTRATION: Padres Spring Training Camp (tryouts)

This camp will be a preseason high performance program combined with AAA/AA evaluations for those who intend to tryout for Edmonton Padres teams at 18U, 15U, 13U and 11U. Player health and safety is the focus while building players back to form since many will have done less, sometimes considerably, than typical years leading up to tryouts. Players should expect 2-3 sessions per week over four weeks beginning Saturday, March 5 and running through Thursday, March 31.

Players will be tiered in groupings within each age category initially by AAA returners (from that team/age level), AA returners (from that age level), AAA first years (players moving up an age level), and AA/house league/unknown imports (depending on public health guidelines at the time, there may be more than 4 groupings to accommodate player numbers). At the end of each week, players will be re-tiered based on how they’re doing compared to their peer groups.

AAA rosters will be finalized following the sessions on Saturday, March 19 and posted the following day.  AA camp/tryouts will continue as groups 4, 5, 6 while AAA teams will occupy time slots as groups 1, 2, 3. The rosters for AA teams will be posted by Sunday, April 3. This tiering system will ensure a fair evaluation while not forcing players to ramp up before they’re physically prepared to. Focus will be on high performance technical skill development and conditioning while coaches will also have players complete evaluations in the final two weeks of the program.

Assumptions: group maximums based on public health guidelines, group sessions are permitted, groups may be re-tiered from week-to-week. All public health guidelines will be followed and there might be additional guidelines set in the interest of player and coach safety.
