The most organized and structured National Youth Program in the country is available for teams and players 6U-12U

 

US Elite is widely recognized as one of the top national programs in the country for helping aspiring baseball players achieve their dreams of playing college and pro baseball. Since its inception in 2006 over 1,000 players have moved on to the next level from the US Elite program. See Commitment List HERE. The vast majority of those players started in the program after they turned age 13. That’s all about to change with the introduction of US Elite Youth.

 

Beginning in the first quarter of 2022, US Elite will begin onboarding new youth teams starting at 6U up to 12U. The goal of the program is to assist qualified youth coaches with their team management, development, training, exposure and future opportunities for players. US Elite Founder and National Director, Mark Helsel, says the timing is right. “Since 2006 we’ve built our program slowly, with a focus on quality over quantity, and we have developed a very strong culture within our program that combines baseball skills with life skills. Our Uncommon Standards are really resonating with people. More so now, than ever before, people are craving structure, discipline and direction in youth sports, especially at the younger ages. They also want a program that develops winners both on and off the field. Unfortunately it’s been hard for many of them to find it. We believe now is the right time to expand our program to the younger players and their parents.  Based on everything we’ve seen and heard, we are certain we can make a positive influence at the youth level”. 

 

 

Preparing the child for the path

Despite all of US Elite’s on field success, Helsel says the real success of the program has been more subtle. “The US Elite program is a very strong and positive influencer. We take great pride in the fact that we are developing people as much, if not more, than we are developing athletes. That’s by far the number one reason we want to get involved at the youth level. We feel we can make a big difference in how these young men and women develop as people. As the saying goes, we are not preparing the path for the child, we are preparing the child for the path. With the support of parents and the incredible efforts of our coaches, we can work together and create an amazing experience for our players and their families. Youth sports can be a tremendous precursor to what lies ahead in life long after the playing days are over. We don’t want to miss this great opportunity to impact generations of young athletes through sports”. 

 

History is on your side

Coaches and parents who are considering joining the US Elite program will also be encouraged by the program’s success on the field. US Elite teams have been competing at the highest levels and have won many national championships. Year in and year out US Elite players consistently get ranked nationally and US Elite has developed very strong relationships with college coaches and professional scouts. “Getting our players exposure to any college in the country is not a challenge for us. We have earned the trust and respect of the college coaches. I can say with complete confidence that they like how we are preparing our players for their level. At the high school age our average GPA among our players is 3.6. We are teaching players to compete in everything they do, including the classroom. said Helsel. 

 

 

 

 

US Elite Youth Membership

That way, US Elite has a relationship directly with that player and the family that goes beyond the team aspect. The membership includes the following: 

 

  • Online account in DiamondZoft Software

  • Individual Player Profile Page

  • Online Player Training Videos

  • Nutritional Support Training

  • I.D.P. (yearly Individual Development Plan)

  • Shining Star Youth Camp Voucher

  • US Elite National Combine Invitation

Membership Annual Pricing. $360

“Begin with the end in mind”

One of the most exciting aspects of the US Elite Youth program is that young players will have an opportunity to stay in the program even after they turn 13U. The transition to the "big field" is one of the most dramatic changes for young players. US Eite has thought this through and has a great plan for everyone involved. Based on a player's maturity and level of play at 13U players will have the opportunity to play on an advanced level US Elite College Prep Team or play in the US Elite/GameChangers Develoipmental program. In either case, the standards and expectations are the same.
