Tournament 12 (T12) Tryouts will take place across Canada in the summer of 2017. These camps will help determine the players that will be selected to represent their Province/Region at T12.

Although it is not mandatory that players attend a T12 Tryout Camp in order to be selected to a T12 roster, it is greatly encouraged. Each player will receive a T12 Tryout Camp shirt, along with a T12 Cap.
$110 (plus HST) per participant. Toronto T12 Tryout is $140 (plus HST).

Who is eligible?
Amateur baseball players who are between the ages of 14-19 (as of September 1, 2017) can register to participate in the T12 Tryout Camp. If a player is selected to participate in T12, the player will be assigned to the team representing the Province/Region where they were born.
What is involved?
Position players will be evaluated based on Speed (60-Yard Sprint), Throwing, Defense and Hitting. Pitchers will be evaluated by throwing in the bullpen. Each evaluation session will run approximately four hours.
Why should I attend?
The T12 Tryout Camp is your best option to be considered for a roster spot at T12. Although the Blue Jays Baseball Academy has made a conscience effort to attend many showcase events across Canada, we cannot accurately evaluate all interested players. The T12 Tryout Camp is your chance to make sure you are evaluated by Toronto Blue Jays personnel. In addition, the Blue Jays Baseball Academy will be reaching out to other MLB teams along with college recruiters to come and scout these events.
Who will be evaluating the players?
Players will be evaluated by the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Academy and the Toronto Blue Jays Scouting Department. All final roster decisions will be determined by the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Academy.
Should Bantam age players attend?
Yes, T12 is focussed on getting the best player regardless of age. Younger players attending a T12 Tryout Camp can begin to position themselves for consideration in future tournaments. It is a great experience for players to be evaluated in this type of setting/environment.
What is the refund policy?
A full refund, less a $10 administration fee, will be granted if registration is cancelled at least 48 hours prior to clinic date. Any cancellations within 48 hours of the clinic will not receive a refund.
When are the T12 Rosters Selected?
August 1: First 10 roster spots are determined for each team. August 12: Final 12 roster spots are determined for each team.
In Toronto, how many sessions do you I need to attend?
To accommodate all players, there will be six tryouts in Toronto. Players only need to register for one and will be asked for their first and second preference during registration. You will be notified of your session roughly two weeks prior to the date of the event. There is a maximum of 150 spots in each session.
Please contact the Blue Jays Academy at 416-341-2500 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
