 Rock 16U Showcase

First, Thank you families who were on the 16U Showcase team  -we had a very successful seaon and for the girls returning we are looking to take our play to the next level and for the girls moving on we wish you all the very best.

We are forming the Newtown Rock 18U Elite - Seiple team.

The Rock organization is well-known for placing our athletes at top college programs around the country. We have experienced coaches who make sure our players are trained, prepared, and ready for the next level. Our 2017 Rock Gold graduating class includes players heading for D1 schools like Bucknell, Marist, Villanova, Penn State, Drexel, Boston University, La Salle, and Quinnipiac.

If you're looking for an opportunity to compete at top tournaments, improve as a player, and get national college exposure, contact head coach Tom.seiple@verizon.net

As for 2017-18 season, this team will be merging with Jeff Shockley's 18U Elite team as well as levering Jeff as part of the coaching staff.  We are looking for top athletes who want to play at the next level, promotes a great personal brand, and who puts the team first. Our team will have the opportunity to work out and train with Coach Joe Garvey's Gold team, so if Gold is your target we have the opportunity to get there from the inside...however it will need to come with hard work, determination and positive attitude.

Currently we only have two openings - outfielder and catcher.

If you would like a private tryout session please feel free to reach out to me and we are more than willing to set up an appointment. 

Looking forward to seeing you on the field! 

All the best,

Coach Tom.
