This flexible program allows you to enjoy the benefits of team travel but use the trip to finish up your pre-season preparations on the practice field, in the batting tunnel, or in as many scrimmages or games as you choose.
As with all KSA Events experiences, participating teams come nationwide from Alaska to Florida and from Massachusetts to California, providing a true national competition format that brings together teams who would otherwise never meet on the field.
Matt Petherick – Milton Academy (MA) – “The trip was remarkably well run and efficient. The balance of time on the field and “fun time” was perfect.”
As exciting as KSA Events competition can be, KSA Events was founded as a non-profit with the assistance of Coaches and Athletic Directors to promote the educational aspects of athletic participation. Therefore, the following key learning points are promoted through KSA participation:
In total, KSA Events truly offer an opportunity for your players to grow as individuals. So whether you are looking to reward your program for years of hard work or bring excitement to a rebuilding program, KSA competition offers a unique educational opportunity to student-athletes.
Kevin Cust – Immaculata HS (NJ) – “The trip was remarkably well run and efficient. The balance of time on the field and “fun time” was perfect.
The KSA Events Sun’Sational Baseball Spring Training Program and Tournament include dozens of teams in total, but all teams are divided into different weeks of travel to accommodate multiple spring breaks from across the country.
As in all KSA Events, Junior Varsity competition is typically available to all teams interested. This allows your entire program to experience the team bonding aspects of KSA Events participation without concern that your younger players will miss out on game experience. JV game quantities vary with participating team interest.
Joe De Martini – Northport HS (NY) – “This was our second wonderful trip experience with KSA. KSA was very professional handling along with caring about our team’s experience. As a result of our team bonding and getting an early start our team went on to play for the Suffolk County Championship in the Finals. The memories of our experience that KSA provided contributed greatly to an awesome experience.”
When going to KSA Events Sun’Sational Baseball Spring Training Series in partnership with Universal Studios Orlando we play at some of the finest Amateur Facilities in Central Florida. These exciting venues can utilize up to 6 adjacent fields for a tremendous competition atmosphere.

The primary mission of KSA Events is to promote the educational aspects of athletic participation, including team-work, sportsmanship, work-ethic, and responsibility, to name a few. Furthermore, our goal is to foster an environment where classroom learning is valued and rewarded just as much as athletic achievement on the field, creating a truly balanced education. To accomplish this goal, KSA Events awards two separate scholarships as described below.
All scholarships are awarded in accordance with the eligibility regulations of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and appropriate State Athletic Associations.
A KSA Events Book Scholarship is awarded to every team that participates in KSA Events Sun’Sational Baseball Spring Training & Tournament, setting an attainable goal for all participating student-athletes. This scholarship (a one-time award of $250) is to defer the cost of secondary education in support of KSA’s mission to promote education.
Each team’s winner of the KSA Events Book Scholarship is selected by the school Principal and/or Athletic Director and/or Coach based on the following criterion:
The award is to be granted to the best all-around student-athlete on the team that participated in the KSA Event. This definition is to include accomplishment and leadership not only on the court, but also in the classroom and community. It is the specific intent of KSA Events not to simply reward the athlete with the greatest physical ability. It is rather intended to reward the example set by those students who excel on the court and who take the lessons of athletics into the world to benefit themselves and others.
KSA Events is proud to offer our Tag-Along Fan program, which allows the family and friends of participating athletes to travel with the team.
This means that you will contact us directly to sign up, make payments, and receive information, freeing your coach to concentrate on the team and the season, not your travel arrangements.
Benefits exclusive to Tag-Along Fans include the following, just to name a few:
The COACHES CORNER section of our site is designed to make the tournament process easy for coaches from start to finish, so you can concentrate on the upcoming season.
If you are new to the site, Sign Up Here to begin the process or if you have already begun the process or have login credentials from a previous event, you may Login Here and complete your teams registration.
