THE RIGHT FIT (Information Sheet)
In today’s travel-ball world, the aspiring amateur baseball player receives countless invitations to attend Recruiting/Prospect events that are geared to create an opportunity to play at the college level. By a player’s junior year, most have received 100’s of recruiting invite emails to prospect events across the country. Due to a lack of guidance and a true understanding of the recruiting process, a large number of players attend numerous events and play in as many travel-ball tournaments as possible, with the end goal of earning a scholarship. Some families will spend close to a 4-year college tuition within their pursuit.
No matter how much money’s spent, no matter how many recruiting events attended, tournaments played in and or how much exposure receive, if the player isn’t meeting the expectations of the recruiters/scouts they’re simply wasting their time and money. Exposure is important, but the timing of the exposure and the type of exposure is even more important. This approach is costly, inconsistent, unreliable and promotes injury.
Without proper mentoring, guidance and contacts, many players don’t accomplish their goals and those that do, oftentimes don't play at the level they wanted to. Countless others don’t enjoy their college experience and or don’t graduate from where they initially enrolled, resulting in a high transfer rate. Too often, colleges are selected and pursued because they appear “Attractive as an Idea,” verses attractive as the “Right Fit.”
With over 25 years of experience and contributing to over 7,000 players playing college or professional baseball, I have created “The Right Fit Recruiting System”, a recruiting system that brings both clarity and direction to the recruiting process. The Right Fit helps athletes avoid the common pitfalls and mistakes made by players and their families; helping them simplify the process, have an enjoyable experience, save money and time while at the same time being successful pursuing their college baseball dream.
Our mission at Trosky Baseball is that each player thrives in college and has an amazing college experience with their first college of choice. Graduating from a college they selected because it was where they wanted to go because it was the is the Right Fit.
The Right Fit Recruiting System is based on the Trosky 7 Pillars of Success.
Troaky 7 Pillars of Success:
Below you will find a breakdown of our 7 Pillars of Success. We begin with “The Fit List.”
7 Part Recruiting System (the Pillars / The Process)
The “Fit List” helps players both identify and categorize colleges that are a good fit for them. The Fit-List asks important questions bringing an understanding to the 4-Fits along with an understanding of how the player fits within the 4-Fits. The answers to the questions give clear direction and guidance, helping the player identify and categorize colleges into a true and accurate “College Target List”
At each Trosky showcase, players participate in the “Trosky 5-Tool Player Assessment.” The Trosky 5-Tool Player Assessment is unique, advanced, and designed to help players understand where they currently stand where they project at the next level. The model begins with assessing each player’s GPA, followed by a Body Assessment. Players then learn the 5-Tools and the value of each tool in-regards to their defensive position. Lastly, the players are tested, graded and with the data gathered, players develop a focused training program according to their personal needs and deficiencies.
The Trosky 5-Tool Player Assessment has 6 components:
At each Trosky Showcase, players have the option to purchase a “Personal Player Evaluation.” The evaluations are completed by the college coaches. Player evaluations provide a college coach’s perspective of where a player currently is and where they project as future prospects. Player evaluations serve as a valuable tool in the recruiting process.
Attending a Trosky College Showcase Camp, each player receives a “Personal Player Assessment” (PPA) completed by coach Trosky. The PPA gives each player clarity and direction, simplifying and focusing the player’s pursuit of playing at the next level. Coach Trosky is an expert in player projection. He has been scouting professionally for the past 15 years and has contributed to over 7,000 players playing at the college and professional levels. Coach Trosky has coached numerous 1st round draft picks and some of the game's best players (Arenado, Yelich, Cole, Crawford, Stanton, etc…).
Personal Player Assessment Consists of:
The foundation for developing a successful player development program begins with a clear understanding of oneself (self-awareness). Following coach Trosky's professional assessment, each player will have a clear understanding of their identity, of who they currently are and what they need to do to reach their goals.
A player's "College Target List" (CTG) is assembled after a player has completed the first 4-Pillars of the Right Fit Recruiting System; 1. The Fit List, 2. The 5-Tool Player Assessment, 3. The College Coach Evaluations, and 4. The Personal Player Assessment. A player’s CTL is their navigation to the decisions they’ll make, serving as their compass and navigation through the recruiting process.
Once the player’s College Target List is completed, they begin the recruiting process by utilizing the “Pro-Act Recruiting Calendar.” Each month, players receive a new recruiting calendar with their recruiting responsibilities in regards to the recruiting process for that month.
6th Tool Alignment is the determining factor of how far a player will go both in baseball and in life. 6th Tool Alignment answers the question, “How much better will players become? Will they get better, worse or stay the same?” The #1 job of a college recruiter and scout is to project players, to determine where they currently are and how good will they be in the future years to come. The younger the player, the more difficult it is to project. As players get older not all players get better and this is one of the main reasons why successful college recruiters and scouts don’t get consumed with immediate results, rather they get consumed with a player’s make-up, projection, and future potential.
With the significant importance of the 6th Tool, we make 6th Tool Alignment a priority. We first teach the 6th Tool, then we grade the 6th Tool and then we teach players how to live a life aligned with the 6th Tool.
6th Tool Alignment has 4 components:
