While competing against the best travel teams in the area we will promote sportsmanship, knowledge of the game, commitment, and good friendships.

It is MSA goal that our efforts will attract the best in youth baseball talent and the most supportive of baseball families.

This team will be tournament only, playing six tournaments throughout the state including several USSSA tournaments and the CABA State Tournament.

We will start indoor practice in late December early January at MSA and continue to work out at MSA until the high school season begins in March. We will resume practices at the completion of the high school season just prior to the start of the tournament schedule.  

Players will receive strength, speed and agility training with professional trainers at Phoenix Athletics, located inside MSA. MSA players can also use the batting cages as much as they want to as it is part of their membership.
