SWFL Collegiate Clinic and 2021 Summer Try-Outs

SWFL Baseball and Prep Baseball Report team up for SWFL 2021 summer try – outs

SWFL Baseball and Prep Baseball Report – PBR have teamed up for the SWFL Baseball summer try – outs. The try – outs are on January 9 in Fort Myers at Bishop Verot HS and on January 10 in Lakeland at Lake Bonny Park. Players do not have to attend both sessions. The address for each workout is:

Session 2 – Sunday January 10 at Lake Bonny Park – 800 US 98 South Lakeland, FL 33801

The SWFL organization is looking for elite High School baseball players that want to further their baseball careers in college for the graduating Classes 2021-2025. At SWFL we enhance our player’s ability to get a scholarship by matching a school that fits their baseball ability, academic needs, family needs and budget whether it is a D1-D2-D3 or NAIA. The past travel season saw nine 2021 players commit to University of Central Florida, the Air Force, Florida Gulf Coast U, Troy University, Flagler College and numerous Junior College programs. Our 22’ and 23’ classes boast of FGCU, University of Florida and University of Alabama recruits. More offers and opportunities are in the works also.

2020 was one of SWFL Baseball’s finest campaigns and we’re looking to build on our reputation. Our try-outs will feature PBR analytics testing in the cost. PBR will provide data from Trackman and Blast motion analytics and metrics for all pitchers and hitters. This data will be available to the player and college coaches immediately following the try – out. Each session will feature a professional workout that includes 60-yard dash, OF and IF defensive segments and batting practice.

Cost for the try-outs is $250 for a pitcher or position player and $325 for a dual position player. The cost included all the Trackman and Blast motion data and an update to your profile will be held in June at no cost. College Coaches will be in attendance but due to Covid 19 precautions, the number of Colleges will be limited.

The schedule for the try – outs will be as follows:

All players must be pre-registered through the PBR website by Friday January 8 at 5pm.

IN HONOR OF:  BILL SKARBEK

BILL SKARBEK  was one of the founding members of SWFL Baseball with Dave Fore and John Cedarburg. Bill was a champion of youth baseball and handled all aspects of the SWFL program during his tenure. He worked tirelessly to make sure that he helped young men reach their goals of playing college or professional baseball. He was quick with a smile and easy to talk to. Bill devoted his life to his family, the FBI, and the SWFL Nation. Bill is survived by his wife Selina and 3 children. Bill’s grandson, Ridge, played on the SWFL 2020 team. He would have been proud of his grandsons attitude and play ability.
