Ogden City High School College Showcase + Gulls Baseball Club Tryouts
Players and Coaches; Gulls Baseball Club in conjunction with Ogden City will be hosting the 3rd annual 2015 College Showcase and Gulls Baseball Club tryouts May 28th, 29th and 30th. Once again we will be in conjunction with the Utah High School All Star Weekend operated by Ogden City Recreation. All activities will take place at Lindquist Field in Ogden, UT. This is the official Gulls Baseball Club tryout but with that said all players are encouraged to register rather trying out for the Gulls or not. It is an open registration to all HS players. This will be an incredible opportunity for any player to get college exposure. When registering there is a option to select trying out for the Gulls or not.
Last year with 15 colleges attending within 7 conferences the 217 players that attended got an incredible opportunity to showcase their baseball skills to the next level. College coaches were afforded the opportunity to see 217 players in a 2 day showcase format which included Utah All Star games and the Coaches Choice Game. To date we have exceeded the amount of coaches that attended last year already. ( See below )
Coaches this is a great way to see a large amount of quality players in one location. With the new recruiting boundaries in the NW this is a great way to get Utah players information about your program as well as identify players who would match well within your program both from a academic standpoint as well as athletic ability. Over 30 High Schools were represented last summer with a large range of all position players. Coaches for more information or to confirm that you will be attending please contact us at
email@example.com or fill out the "Contact Us" link at the top of the page.
Players this is a great way to get in front of multiple coaches from several different conferences/divisions for an extremely low cost. We will provide all coaches with your athletic information as well as academic information that you provide us with while registering. In addition if you are trying out for the Salt lake Gulls Baseball Club this is the mandatory tryout. All players trying out must attend this event. Gulls A (16U), AA (18U), and AAA(18U) teams will be selected from the showcase. If you are not trying out for the Salt Lake Gulls Baseball Club registration is exactly the same other than you will be asked during online registration "Are you trying out for the Gulls Baseball Club". All players must Select Yes or No during the process. Sophomores and Juniors: Do not wait until your senior year to get the attention of college coaches. Start the process early. This will increase your chances tremendously of playing college baseball. To register you must be in HS. 9-12th grades. In addition Outgoing Seniors are also encouraged to register if they are still looking for a college to play. There will be colleges there looking for 2015 grads. For more information or questions please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the "Contact Us" link at the top of the page.
As an organization we believe Utah has great baseball players that can and do compete at the highest level of baseball performance. Our goal is to get Utah players access to college coaches in mass numbers as well as connect college programs with quality baseball players.
