Starting in 2019, the brand new Saxon Youth Baseball program will serve as the official feeder program for South Salem Baseball.
The program runs in conjunction with the high school, and South Salem Head Coach Max Price will help oversee the operations. Saxon Youth Baseball will serve all future Saxons, from T-ball through 8th grade, to better provide a safe, fun, and developmental environment to ensure players receive the best instruction available.
The program will have unique access to South Salem Baseball facilities, fields, and equipment, in addition to ample opportunities to work with the high school players and coaching staff. Players will get to compete against both local and regional teams, in addition to having an option to participate in highly competitive tournaments. The youth program will be vertically aligned with the high school team and philosophy, allowing players to learn the Saxon Baseball system prior to arriving their freshman year.
The Saxon Youth Baseball program will operate under its own charter, with players participating in Cal Ripken leagues through age 12 before transitioning to Babe Ruth leagues at age 13.
To sign up for email notifications, or to apply as a youth coach, please visit the Saxon Youth Baseball website.
Parents can enroll their players early, view proposed schedules, and read other pertinent information by visiting our Saxon Youth Baseball Shared Google Drive.
Every effort will be made to keep player costs as low as possible. Potential coaches will have their applications reviewed prior to undergoing a rigorous interview process. A committee led by Coach Price will ultimately make final coaching decisions.
South Salem Baseball will host two camps in the coming weeks in an effort to allow potential Saxon Youth Baseball players with an opportunity to meet the high school coaches, experience the program’s unique training systems, and learn what it means to be a Saxon. During the first 20 minutes of both camps, we’ll hold a parent meeting to provide more information and respond to questions.
