HCSL Introduction 

The 2018 Houston Collegiate Summer League (HCSL) continues to strive to becoming southeast Texas' foremost premier summer collegiate wood-bat league.  HCSL is the premier place for elite local area collegiate standouts who return home to Houston to train and hone skills in anticipation of next season. 

HCSL teams play a 20-27 game regular season league beginning in late May and running through the end of July.  The league champion earns the right to travel and compete at the National Baseball Congress (NBC) World Series in Wichita, Kansas.  Teams also have the opportunity to participate in exhibition games and other league sponsored tournaments.  
 
The HCSL is celebrating its 3rd season and features a 10 club league.  The HCSL and its baseball clubs are focused on player development and preparation for the next level.  The league will play its’ games on several of Houston's premier ball fields. 
 
As part of the HCSL commitment to growing and setting the HCSL apart from other similar summer leagues, the HCSL has partnered with the local area MLB scouts to add a player’s evaluation program.  This program not only creates visibility for the players who participate in the league, but also creates development programs and opportunities to improve “playability” skills necessary for success back with their school programs and potentially for the next level.  
 
The HCSL also provides college location and transfer assistance programs for players moving from 2-year junior colleges to 4-year colleges or for recently graduate high school seniors looking for opportunities to attend college.  
 
Most of the players who make-up HCSL rosters, are made up of players who grew up and graduated from Houston area high schools and now are playing for colleges throughout the US.  The HCSL also provides players who must remain in the area to attend summer classes, the opportunity to get competitive work in.  The HCSL by partnering with local host families, as available, do offer housing options for out of state players who seek a league focused on their development.
 
Each team is responsible for fielding its roster, and in many cases, teams start recruiting as early as when the previous season has ended.  The HCSL league office will take in applications up to May 21st, while some programs within the league may add and subtract players throughout the summer.  Players who register after the deadline may be added by teams if space if available.  In 2017, the eight team HCSL had ~260 players, with ~50 joining after the deadline.
Our Strategy
Our strategy is to use our "National Pastime" and its life lessons in a positive manner that is dedicated to developing our youth. We will do this by reinforcing teamwork, promoting sportsmanship, encouraging positive leadership characteristics, rewarding dedication and entrusting our youth as they become positive community citizens.
  1. Training
    HCSL coaches are committed to the continued growth of every player with in the league as it pertains to physical skills, mental stability, and social development.
  2. Sportsmanship
    HCSL demands of every player and parent that participates in the league, to play fair, follow the rules of the game, respect the judgement of officials, and treat opponents with respect.
  3. Success
    "Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming." (John R. Wooden)
