Blizzard Summer Program

The Minnesota Blizzard Baseball Program would like to invite you to try out for the top elite baseball team in Minnesota!

• HS Summer Team Program (2023-2025 grads)

Creating teams that consist of the most dedicated, talented players in the state has been the goal of the Blizzard Elite teams since 2003. Since that time, the Blizzard Elite Baseball program has played a full summer program playing in some of the top tournaments and against the best competition in the country. Our primary purpose is to assemble the most competitive roster possible to play against great competition in a recruitment packed atmosphere.

Since 2008, we have had just over 420 players move on to college and have had 57 players who have either been drafted or signed as free agents including Sam Carlson (Mariners, 2nd Round), Michael Busch (Dodgers, 1st Round), Logan Shore (Athletics, 2nd Round) to name a few.

Our Youth Spring and Summer Program for ages 10u-14u includes a tournament-heavy schedule that includes two tournaments in the spring season and 6-8 tournaments during the summer weekends. We reserve the weekdays for training and practice and travel on the weekends –mainly to tournaments in Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin.You think you got what it takes?

I’d love to see you show us your stuff and earn a spot to play with the most successful club program in the Midwest - the Blizzard Elite Baseball program!

Since 2003, the Blizzard Elite Baseball program has played a full summer program playing in some of the top tournaments and against the best competition in the country.  Our primary purpose is to assemble the most competitive roster possible to play in top-tier tournaments against great competition in a recruitment packed atmosphere.

The Minnesota Blizzard has an experienced staff full of veteran coaches who have been in the program for several years to help develop, compete, practice and help players learn the valuable lessons of our Blizzard Big 5 - our values that we run our program by.

A bi-product of putting the best players together and playing top-tier competition in great tournaments is the recruiting piece to our program.  Since 2008, our first graduating class, we have had just over 420 players move on to college and have had 58 players who have either been drafted or signed as a free agent including 2017 grad Sam Carlson (Mariners, 2nd Round), 2016 grad Michael Busch (Dodgers, 1st Round), 2016 grad Logan Shore (Athletics, 2nd Round) and 2016 grad Alex Call (White Sox, 3rd Round) to name a few.

Our goal is to help players navigate the process, give them insight on what it takes to play at the next level, and ultimately help them bridge the gap with college coaches.  That means making phone calls, taking video, helping them with their personalized Blizzard profile and help them learn how to make the right decision with consultations with both the players and parents.

In Baseball,

Coach Barta!
