NAFBF and Area Scouts Announce Partnership

The National Amateur Fall Baseball Federation launches partnership with Area Scouts

May 7, 2021 - Menomonie, WI

In an age where a wealth of information and knowledge is so openly available to an athlete, it’s not always so easy to determine what the best strategy, drill, or course of action is best for each individual is for both their current and future performance. However, that assessment and course of action become much clearer for Area Scouts (AS) and National Amateur Fall Baseball Federation (NAFBF) athletes as the two companies agree to a new partnership.

The NAFBF will be using AS’s comprehensive Biomechanics, Athleticism, Sequence, and Endurance (B.A.S.E.™) assessment as part of their Package #2 and Package #3 offerings. The B.A.S.E. assessment, created through a collaboration of physicians, physical therapists, and numerous sports industry professionals, will provide every athlete with a completed outline of their overall physical foundation to help to maintain athlete health and to continue developing athletic performance.

Athletes will be able to sign up for any of the packages below starting May 10th with the official launch of the new NAFBF website:

Package#1: The Virtual Program                                                                                                                  

  • Membership to the NAFBF                                                                                          

  • Insurance through Sadler Insurance              

  • Sports Mentalitics                                                          

  • Character Development & Leadership                                    

  • Skill Shark Self Evaluation                                                             

  • College Coaches Question Review                                     

  • College Blue Book Entry                                      

Package #2: B.A.S.E. Program

  • B.A.S.E. assessment Powered by Area Scouts   

Package #3: The On-Field Program                    

  • NAFBF Physical Evaluation in Conjunction with Skill Shark 

  • NAFBF Physical Evaluation with a Celebrity Evaluator                        

  • USSCI Insurance 

To quote Larry Jaskiel, VP of Marketing at NAFBF as to why a partnership with AS made perfect sense:

“When listening to the presentation from Bryan [Bryan Murray, Director of Operations Baseball, Softball, Football at Area Scouts] for the potential partnership between our two companies, it was easy to see why we’d be the perfect fit…... Both our companies want our athletes to be the best mentally and physically prepared that they can be, and to be given honest, data-driven feedback as to where they stand with their strength, movement, and mindset, and to have as many resources as possible at their disposal for their long-term success.”

For athletes who want to take advantage of the benefits that the AS and NAFBF partnership and push themselves to their next level, or for those who are interested in becoming associates or evaluators, head to or to learn more about these companies and see what would be best for your development and career as an athlete or as an associate/evaluator.

About Area Scouts

Founded in early 2020, Area Scouts’ (AS) mission is to provide quality, science-based, and non-cookie cutter mechanical, movement, and skills assessments and development plans to athletes of all budgets, because no athlete should be barred from playing, developing, or from assessments due to cost. AS also strives to recognize mental health and mental preparedness as a staple of a lasting and fulfilling career, to offer dietary aid, to get athletes to their next level with recruitment resources such as pro-grade scouting reports, national rankings, and Sports Thread, as well as promoting a continuous learning environment for both athletes and evaluators alike.
