- August 26, 2016-The inaugural Select 30 All American Camp presented by USA Elite Select in Tuscaloosa, AL has come to a close. The three-day event featured over 430 athletes from across the country showcasing their individual talents and competing for a spot in Sunday’s Select 30 All American Games.
Players from six different graduation classes, 2017 to 2022, worked closely with the All American Scouting Network to measure their speed, power, agility and explosiveness in a series of drills focused on fielding, hitting, pitching, throwing and athleticism. Athletes had the opportunity to work with current professional players from the National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) and college athletes from Alabama, Mississippi State, and UAB. The entire camp was centered around the NPF Championship Series with an effort of bringing the top amateur players in the same location as the top professionals.
Following the two days of training and evaluations, the Scout Team selected the top 30 athletes to represent their respective grad class. The top 30 athletes of each class were then divided into two teams [Navy & White] and competed in two seven-inning games Sunday to narrow down the final All American rosters for each class.
