Summer National Teams


The Select National teams are comprised of the best players in the Select League at age levels 10U-14U. These teams will compete at the Ripken Experience in either Myrtle Beach, SC or Pigeon Forge, TN at one of their week-long National Events. All team practices will be set up after the Select League ends. This will give each team a few weeks to prepare for their National Event.

Ripken Myrtle Beach


 

This complex has 9 turf fields, multiple batting cages & turf practice areas. Each field has its own set of lights and there is a pro shop/concession area.  All of the fields on site are designed after replica ball parks making this a unique experience for the kids.

This week-long tournament will start off with the opening ceremonies followed by the skills competition which consists of 3 different events (Turn Two, Outfield Relay & HR Derby). Each team is guaranteed 6 games but could play as many as 9 games depending on how deep your team goes in the playoffs. The championship game will be played at Crosley Field (13U & 14U) and Duncan Field (10U-12U) which are the main fields at the complex! Players will also receive gifts and a Ripken Experience ring before they leave!

Myrtle Beach is one of the most popular family vacation destinations in the U.S.  The beach is 10 minutes from the Ripken complex and the boardwalk is within walking distance. The boardwalk offers restaurants, shops, games, shows and fireworks. All players will receive passes to the local water parks as well as some mini golf courses. With so much to do in Myrtle Beach we are very confident that this trip will be an amazing vacation and experience for all Select families!
