We will be hosting a program-wide orientation meeting:
 
Saturday, December 2
 10:30 a.m.
 Core Athletics
120 Church St. NE, Concord, NC 


Please plan to attend this meeting if you are interested in information about the Charlotte Stampede Middle School or High School programs for Spring 2018. This will be our only registration meeting before tryouts begin. The meeting will include a discussion time with parents to discuss the 2018 program. We will go over program details, uniforms, schedules, fees and fundraising opportunities. Prospective players will be fitted for uniforms and hats.  First fee installment of $100 (middle school); $200 (high school) will be collected.  Any player who does not make a team will receive a full refund.  
 
Players will have an opportunity to meet our 2018 coaching staff, discuss the long toss program and weight training/speed programs, as well as hit in the cages. They should come prepared to throw outside. It would be beneficial if they would play catch a couple times the week before coming to the meeting. High School players will begin the long tossing program (60 feet), but will not be pitching!  Players should bring baseball equipment including cleats.  Parents bring registration forms (can be printed from website) and lawn chairs.
