ACADEMY WEEK

The Blue Jays Baseball Academy will travel to three provinces throughout the summer months to host a number of youth baseball related events. The Baseball Academy will spend one week in each province, hosting events in different communities within the province. Events can include youth clinics, girls clinics, Challenger Baseball and showcase tryouts.

CANADIAN FUTURES SHOWCASE

The Canadian Futures Showcase is a national amateur baseball showcase held each September and hosted by the Blue Jays Baseball Academy.
