2020 Signing Day

Zoned Signing Day 2020

Zoned Sports Academy, located in Bridgewater, NJ, hosted its 6th annual Signing Day for all the graduating seniors heading into their freshman year of college year next fall. Signing Day at Zoned was created to give every student-athlete a chance to “sign.” Not everyone has an opportunity to sign a National Letter of Intent (NLI), and this is a great opportunity for all the student-athletes to get together to celebrate their accomplishments! Accompanied by their friends and family members, the staff at Zoned calls up each student-athlete individually. After taking a photo, each recipient signed a certificate of excellence and received their very own Signing Day framed Jersey to represent their high school and the college they will be attending.

Zoned is proud to announce that there were 61 student-athletes moving on to play baseball and softball at the collegiate level, 51 of which attended Signing Day. Piscataway, Watchung Hills, Bridgewater, Warren Hills, Governor Livingston, J.P. Stevens, Stroudsburg, Delbarton, Hun, Montgomery and Scotch Plains – Fanwood were just some of the high schools represented. Of the 61 signees, some colleges that were represented included University of Notre Dame, Duke University, University of South Carolina, University of Mass, Penn State, Rutgers University, Princeton University, Villanova University, University of Delaware, Gettysburg College, TCNJ, Franklin and Marshall College, University of Rhode Island, Johns Hopkins University, and many more. A special thanks to Mike Nikorak for speaking (1st Round Draft Pick with Colorado Rockies 2015) and all that sponsored the event.

For the 6th consecutive year, Signing Day at Zoned Sports Academy was a success! Each year, thousands of new faces walk through the doors at Zoned with the hopes and aspirations of playing in college and making it to the big leagues. “It is our ultimate goal to see our kids play collegiately, and we take pride in seeing so many of our student-athletes enter the next chapter in their academic and athletic careers. Some of these kids have trained with us for over 10 years and we are so proud to see them move on,” said owner, Duke Baxter.

Each day, the staff members at Zoned embark on a new journey with young athletes in hopes of developing them both on and off the field. Their job is to help train them in baseball and softball, as well as helping them to find the right academic fit moving forward. We look forward to all our future Signing Days and wish our class of 2020 the best of luck on their college careers!
