Booker T. Washington High Baseball Program:
We will have summer baseball tryouts for incoming 9th graders on Friday 5/31/19 @ 10:00 am (@ BTWHS baseball field). All participants will need to bring a completed FHSAA EL2, EL3, and EL3CH form (downloadable at FHSAA.org or the individual school’s and school district’s website), as well as the Escambia County School District drug screening consent form (available on the school district website or from our front office). The tryout selection list will be posted online and at the field by 2 pm of tryout day. All selected players and parents are strongly urged to attend our summer meet and greet the following evening (6/1/18) at the Wildcat Baseball Facility. The cookout will begin at 6:00 pm., with pertinent information from the coaching staff and booster club to follow. For those selected for our summer teams, training will take place during the month of June (Monday-Wednesday 6/3-6/26) at our baseball and athletic facilities. The workout times will be 7:00 am-10:00 am. We will also play double-headers on Mondays and Tuesdays (and one Wednesday) at the listed school location (please look at the summer baseball calendar for game sites and start times). Also, we will have our Wildcat Baseball Camp for ages 7-14 (including incoming 9th graders) in June. The dates will not be finalized until the end of April, but we are shooting for June 17th and 18th. Please keep in mind that summer baseball and regular season baseball do not go hand in hand. All players (including returning players) will have an opportunity to make the varsity or junior varsity high school team in January 2020 during our regular season tryout schedule. However, our summer baseball training program does afford all incoming players an opportunity to impress our BTWHS baseball coaching staff. I look forward to meeting the newest additions to the Wildcat family this summer, and I hope that you are excited about BTWHS Baseball! Sincerely, Jason Lavaway (Head Coach) JLavaway@escambia.k12.fl.us
