(formerly known as the Junior Olympics)


FLORIDA:  East: Tuesday, June 17 - Wednesday, June 25

Rijo Athletics will be taking a 17U team to FLORIDA to compete in the USA Baseball 17U Championships (formerly known as the Junior Olympics). This is the most scouted and recruited tournament in the US for 16 to 17-year-old players.

Through these Championships, USA Baseball will continue to provide an opportunity for  all teams participating (which was 144 teams last year) to showcase their ability against teams from all across the country, as well as provide the exclusive opportunity for players to be considered for the 17U National Team.

It’s important to note that you will miss one week of your summer select team. You must clear it with your select coach first before committing. Rijo Athletics do not have select teams. This is the only event we participate in during the summer months.

  • There is a 7-game minimum in pool play and then double-elimination.
  • All teams will play five games in a round-robin format
  • Championship Rounds 1 & 2 (possible two games)
  • Consolidation Round (one game per team)
  • Age Limit: May 1, 1996 (oldest birth date of eligible participant)
  • Cost:  $695.00 (This covers coaches, tournaments and administrative costs.  Meals, travel, meal expense and transportation are your responsibility)

Please call (425) 486-4878 or e-mail info@rijoathletics.com if you are interested in trying out for this team.  Players are selected based on performance, skills and available positions.
