Can I register my child for one or a few of the months, or does it have to be for the full 5-month program?
Registration must be for the full 5-month program.
The Tigers Academy is designed to develop athletes progressively over the course of 5 months using a proven training program that will enable elite athletes to develop strong fundamentals and achieve peak performance at the end of the program to be best prepared for a successful season.
What happens if my child misses one or several sessions?
Much like attending all classes at school, we recommend attending all sessions, but we understand that this may not be possible. While missing a couple of sessions will not be a problem, missing many sessions may result in your child falling behind. Missed sessions will not be credited or made-up, but you can always book private lessons with Le Sandlot coaches at a Tigers Acedemy Member rate if you feel the need to "catch-up".
What happens if there's another COVID lockdown?
In the event Public Health Officials require Le Sandlot to close or our activities to be suspended, we will suspend the program and you will not be charged the next monthly installment. If we are unable to resume the program, we will credit you in full for any sessions that were covered by the previous installment collected.
Is the Tigers Academy exclusive to 2020 Tigers players, or can my child who was not a 2020 Tiger enroll?
At this time, the program is exclusively for 2020 Tigers players born in 2007-2010. It is possible that after the application deadline, if space permits, players that were not Tigers in 2020 may be accepted into the program.
What is taken into consideration in the application? Can we not be selected for the Tigers Academy?
In order to maintain a maximum athlete to coach ratio of 4:1, we are limited in the number of athletes per Age Class. While we will make every effort to accept all eligible athletes into the Tigers Academy, we may be required to turn some athletes away. As a result, eligible athletes will be prioritized based on the timeliness of their application and their level of commitment during the 2020 season.
Will my child automatically be a Tiger in 2021 by being part of the Tigers Academy?
Being a member of the Tigers Academy does not guarantee a spot on a Tigers 2021 roster. Our goal with the Tigers Academy is to best prepare your child for the tryouts and the season ahead. It is our hope that with the help of this elite training program, your child will earn a spot on a 2021 Tigers roster.
My child is Atom aged and a hopeful Tiger Player for Mosquito, could we be accepted into the Tigers Academy?
The Tigers Academy is currently open to 2020 Tigers born between 2007 and 2010. Athletes born in 2011 should register for Le Sandlot's Tigers Prospect program to best prepare for the Mosquito AA tryout process.
