Our Blizzard Elite teams are separated into two groups – Blue and Black. The Blizzard Blue teams will have the top 12 or 13 players/prospects from the tryouts on the team. Players who are graded out 13-24 will be placed on the Blizzard Black roster if the staff feels like they can compete on a national level.
The Blizzard Fall teams are separated into two groups - Gold and Silver and possibly Bronze if our depth charts are deep enough. Fall Teams (12-14 players) are picked on skill level, position depth charts and proximity to teammates. Our fall teams are very competitive and are usually comprised of many top-tier players who cannot travel due to other sports. We use our Fall Blizzard teams as a minor league system and are the first players called up when an Elite Blizzard player is unable to make a trip. Last year, over 20 players were brought up to play on Blizzard Elite teams throughout the season. Fees for one tournament are on a case by case basis but typically range from $300-$425 / tournament which covers practice, uniform, hotel, tournament, facility, etc.
PITCHER ONLY players are rostered players who are on the team primarily as pitchers. The fee structure is the same but there are more options including lessons.
