Select Team Tryouts

June 12, 2020 TRYOUT UPDATE

First of all THANK YOU for all of those who have signed up to tryout, we appreciate the tremendous response!  A little background on the tryouts for this year.  We opened up the tryout registration a few weeks ago to simply cast a net out to gauge the level of interest in the various age groups.  This lets us know how many coaches we need to bring in and for what level player.  All tryouts this summer are for FALL 2020 teams.  Once we go through the tryout process over the next month then if those new teams that are formed want to begin practicing the first of August then we will go ahead with it.  A lot of parents we have spoken with have indicated their kids are playing on Summer teams into July, that's fine!  Those factors along with our current coaches having to shuffle tournament schedules around with the recent USSSA to Perfect Game switch has us pushing back our first round of group tryouts in July. 

We want everyone to know that you will all get a chance to tryout and be evaluated.  If you can't make the group tryout then we will schedule a private workout.  The most important factor is that you sign up so we know how many are interested.  If you have done that then you are in our system and will have the chance to be evaluated for our FALL teams!!  If you are currently playing on a summer team or a neighborhood team and wish to discuss bringing your team under our STIX umbrella, what the cost and commitment would be,  please contact Josh McPhail at

Thanks you again for your support of STIX.  Growing and developing talent and working with them from a young age all the way through high school is the core of our academy.  We can't wait to meet and see you at tryouts!! 


STIX Baseball & Softball Academy is a program built for athletes looking to improve their game through hard work, disciple and effort.  Beginning with 7U through our high school teams, our goal is continued development in all facets of the game.  These teams will consist of many of the top players from Houston and surrounding areas. We hire coaches who have a passion for teaching and developing talent while maintaining the high standards of sportsmanship we have set.   Each team will consist of paid coaches who will run practices, manage games, and handle all instruction. Each team will seek out the best competition to ensure maximum exposure.  We will play in the best USSSA/Nations/Texas Premiere events in the Houston area and neighboring states. We believe in a family first culture.  Our goal is to prepare our young athletes for the next level whether it be middle school, high school, or college. 


Our philosophy:

Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.
