US Elite College Prep Team Program Explained

US Elite Baseball has announced their plans to form College Prep teams at various locations throughout the US. Tryouts will begin in (16) different states (see list below) beginning in the spring of 2022.  Most states will have one team per age group, per state starting at 13U. Teams will be composed of the most talented players throughout the entire state. The roster formula for most College Prep Teams is as follows: (4) OF, (3) MIF, (3) CINF, (2) C and 8-10 pitchers. 

Players who are interested in playing on a US Elite College Prep Team can complete the form to the right and register for a tryout. They will be notified of the tryout dates in their state. Players attending a tryout will receive a professional level evaluation. State Directors and coaches will be looking for players who demonstrate well above average ability for their age group. 

Say 'goodbye' to average, watered down “travel baseball!”

US Elite Founder, and National Director is excited about what this program will offer. “It’s no secret that travel baseball has grown enormously over the last 5-10 years. There are more teams now than ever before. This growth has created a big challenge for college coaches to see talented players. The talent has gotten very spread out and watered down. Our College Prep Program is designed to put players with above average abilities and talent on one team, and then create a schedule that puts them in front of college coaches on a regular basis. College PrepTeams will play against similar teams with the same talent level. We're not chasing trophies. Instead we’re using our proven formula for helping kids get D1 scholarships. I shared this concept with a lot of college coaches last year and they were all for it. If they can watch a team with 12-15 high level prospects play against another team of equal talent, that's efficient scouting. That’s what they want, and that’s why they like US Elite so much. We make it easy for them to recruit our players".

Play for your state pride. Win a True National Championship!

US Elite will host its own National Championships in 2023. “With all of these super talented College Prep teams from around the country it only makes sense to create our own US Elite national event where they get to play each other for the right to win a the US Elite national championship, '' said Helsel. "It’s already creating a lot of excitement. Imagine 15-20 states sending their top teams to play against the other College Prep teams. For players, they will be playing for the pride of their state. And for college coaches, it will be an amazing event for them to scout." Helsel says he is looking at several possible venues for the National Championships and hopes to make an announcement later in 2022.

Play on college campuses in front of college coaches!

The College Prep teams will play a very specific, high level schedule, highlighted by playing in the College Prospect Series. The C.P.S. is a revolutionary program created by US Elite to organize small, elite level team camps on college campuses. "We started the CPS in the fall of 2019 and it was a huge success, and will continue this summer. Everybody has loved the experience so far, especially the college coaches. They stay home and sleep in their own beds, and then watch (8) really talented teams play at their stadium. We’re reaching out to some other elite level programs and inviting them to participate in the CPS with us. It’s good for everyone and we want to create the best competition possible".

US Elite Promotes its players to college coaches! 

US Elite Baseball is the ONLY program in the country with an internal, private database that connects college coaches with its players. Thanks to DiamondZoft Sports Management Software college coaches have access to US Elite players, and can search through the national US Elite database of players to find players that fit their program's needs. While many players pay "big bucks'' for outside recruiting services, US Elite players have this amazing service included in their player fees at no extra charge. That's UNCOMMON! 

The following programs consistently recruit US Elite players. Furthermore, US Elite has sent its players to over 150 different schools. Players on College Prep teams are promoted heavily to college programs. The results have been nothing short of incredible. SEE LIst of Commitments HERE

Earn a spot on a US Elite National Team!

Helsel says there is one more huge benefit to playing on a US EliteCollege Prep team. They will feed the US Elite National teams. “We have gotten a ton of feedback from our state directors and coaches on how to organize our National Team program. We came up with a plan that we have not seen anywhere else in travel baseball. The players who get to play for our National teams at the biggest national events will be players who are already playing on our College Prep teams. In other words, we’ll use our own national network of players from all over the country to feed our national team program. But, instead of taking them off their College Prep team permanently, they will play on both the CP team and the national team. They will be a full time player on an CP team, and then play for the US Elite National team in the big events like the USA Baseball National Championships, PBR National Championships, Prospect Select World Series, Future Stars National Championships and the Perfect Game World Series and Perfect Game Elite National Championships.

It’s the best of both worlds for the players selected. It will also be a true National team since the players will literally be from all over the country.” Helsel said it will also eliminate the need to bring in “guest players”. All players representing US Elite on a national team will come solely from the US Elite CP Teams.

Individual Develpment Plan (I.D.P.) for every player

Development is the key to success. But, what kind of development? At US Elite we evaluate every player. We find weakness in their skills and abilities and we focus on elminating them. Our goal is to put a "polished" player in front of college coaches. We don't want them saying, "I like him but". Therefore, at US Elite, we invest heavily in the personal and individual development of each of our players. That's UNCOMMON!
