BLIZZARD SUMMER PROGRAM ... LARGER OVERVIEW
Blizzard Elite ... Cost per player and roster selection
We expect you to be a part of every tournament, however, we understand there may be tournaments you may not be able to attend for a variety of reasons. If this is the case, players will NOT be charged for those specific tournaments they are not able to attend but ARE REQUIRED to notify us BEFORE tryouts begin.
Player selection begins after tryouts on February 24th. Current Blizzard players are not guaranteed a spot on the team and players from around Minnesota and the Midwest are invited.
We will select 11-13 positional players / team plus a few select Pitcher Only for each team. When making rosters, we will take the top players at each age group.

Blizzard Elite Coaches
Each one of the Blizzard Elite Coaches are superb teachers, leaders, mentors and have an extensive background in baseball. They each go through an extensive interview process and typically will coach in our Fall Program for one year before traveling. Ultimately, each coach will teach his team with a sense of pride, passion and always have the players’ best interests in mind when practicing, playing and competing in tournaments.
