Our mission is to train players of all ages and skill levels. To hear that one of our players has made their grade school, junior high or high school team is truly fulfilling for our staff. In addition, we take a great deal of pride when players we’ve coached continue their careers on the collegiate or professional level. This is a list of players that have played at the Academy and have continued to pursue their "Field of Dreams" at the next level.
