Program15 Sports is set to hold their organizational meetings over several days this week at their Houston-area headquarters, with the best staff in amateur baseball set to get together and share ideas on a wide variety of subjects related to how to make improvements after an already strong start to 2022. Leadership of The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, Scout School, The Future Stars Series Foundation, and other arms of the P15 Family are expected to attend.
“I’m excited to have everyone together under one roof again,” said P15 Sports/Future Stars Series president and CEO, Jeremy Booth. “Everyone in the room is passionate about making these experiences the best they can for everyone in attendance, so to have the staff here and brainstorming ideas as a unit always makes us better. We’re continually working to make the Future Stars Series the most comprehensive amateur baseball player identification and development experience available and increase the benefit for everyone involved in the future.”
Although details are limited until those meetings conclude, the schedule of things to be discussed is both lengthy and intriguing.
— The remainder of the 2022 calendar will be discussed, as well as looking at 2023 and beyond to ensure a consistent experience for things that Future Stars Series players, partner programs and families can look forward to.
— The revamping of those partner programs so that even more value can be provided to our valued teams.
— Event expansion, formats and locations; including both the National and Underclass Combines, the return of the highly successful Underclass Elite and the debut of the Fresh 50.
— The return of an expanded international calendar, including the return of the World Combine, which produced numerous big-league signings in its 2020 debut, as well as the execution of the Caribbean Classic, which was set to debut last year, but postponed due to COVID-related travel restrictions.
— Dates for the Main Event at Citi Field, which was held in late-September last year with its new name following four years as “International Week” in Sugar Land, Glendale and Boston.
— Further developing the successful Future Stars Series scout school initiative, as well as discussions on the Future Stars Series Foundation, and how the reach can be even further to help players who might not receive opportunities otherwise; donations to the Future Stars Series Foundation are directly applied to providing underserved amateur players, meeting academic and athletic criteria, the development and exposure opportunities that they would not have had otherwise by participating in select Future Stars Series Skills, Training & Evaluation events at no cost as well as assisting initiatives that directly impact victims of natural disasters or cancer research.
In finalizing many of the key elements of the schedule over the next few days at these meetings, announcements are expected shortly thereafter, many of which you’ll be able to see first on all of the Future Stars Series social media channels. More details will be available shortly, but until then, the excitement will continue to build for what’s next for the partner programs, players, families and more.
