Selection Process

In 2015, USA Baseball will utilize a rolling invitation process for 17U National Team Development Program participants. A minimum of 38 athletes will be identified for the NTDP through the USA Baseball National Team Identification Series (NTIS), the USA Baseball 17U National Team Championships and recommendations from professional scouts; college, high school and youth coaches; and the amateur baseball community. As players are named to the development program, USA Baseball will publicize the announcement(s) through a press release and/or by post to USABaseball.com.

The primary identification vehicle for the USA Baseball 17U National Team Development Program will be the 17U National Team Championships. To attend these events, players must compete on one of the teams that will be admitted to participate at each site. At the 17U National Team Championships, USA Baseball Task Force members will identify a minimum of 24 players for the 2015 17U National Team Development Program. Additional secondary events may be held throughout the year by USA Baseball at its National Training Complex in Cary, N.C., which may also be used to identify players for current or future 17U National Team Development Programs.

Players may also qualify for the following calendar year's 17U NTDP by competing in the NTIS. The NTIS is held each August and September and provides USA Baseball with an advanced look at the upcoming class of top players at the 12U, 14U, 15U, 17U and 18U competition levels. At the NTIS, USA Baseball Task Force members will identify a minimum of 12 players for the following season's 17U NTDP. Players may participate in the NTIS through a regional qualification process. For 2015, these invitations have already been made based on the 2014 NTIS.

Once at the 17U National Team Development Program, players will participate in skill development sessions, various off-field educational components including guest speakers/instructors and intrasquad Red vs. Blue games. USA Baseball will engage members of the professional and collegiate community as well as USA Baseball alumni to serve as instructors and educators throughout the week.

The 17U National Team Development programs will be used to further connect identified athletes with USA Baseball staff to better prepare and develop the athletes for a future USA Baseball National Team experience. Two (2) players from the 2015 17U NTDP will be invited to the 2016 18U National Team Trials and eight (8) players will be invited to the 2016 USA Baseball Tournament of Stars. Additionally, there will be an All-Development Team named at the conclusion of the event, and its players will be featured in Baseball America later that summer.

Information contained in this selection process document is subject to change at the sole discretion of USA Baseball and without further notice.
