Cal Ripken 2024 Spring Performance Program


With a balanced approach to training, practice and competition, Alberta Cal Ripken Spring Performance Program offers players an opportunity to participate in a system designed to help athletes get better, play with like-minded peers at similar ability levels, and still stay primarily within local areas. Players will be expected to try out and, if selected, will be drafted onto a team.

Alberta Cal Ripken will be offering four ID Camps during the month of December 2023. Those who register for our 2024 tryouts are encouraged to attend these ID Camps. There are no additional cost for those registered for tryouts. Tryouts will be held in early January.
