    • Hello Ismael: The “i” in iCASE stands for international, and we are absolutely interested in having you attend the iCASE Baseball Academy. We know what a baseball power the DR is, and would be proud to have you be the first Dominican player to attend iCASE. You are eligible right now as a matter of fact. May I call you? If so, please email your telephone number to my personal email address, … or, if you wish to call me, my cell phone is 519-703-4088. Looking forward to hearing back from you.

  2. Hi, I live in South Korea and looking forward to attend iCASE. I played baseball for three years and I have studied English at Brantford, Canada for a year and half. I have few questions I want to ask and they are;
    I just want to know about the school fee or tution fee.
    Also, if I graduate iCASE can I receive the diploma?
    And I am in grade 7 right now and will be grade 8 soon. Is there any dormitory that I can live in?
    What can I do after graduating iCASE?

    • Hello David: If you have established residency in Ontario, then there is no tuition fee to attend Stratford Northwestern Secondary School. If you are still a permanent resident of South Korea, then the school tuition is approximately $12,000 CDN. There is an iCASE fee as well that all players pay, which covers our travel, accommodation, uniforms, caps, coaches, training facilities, equipment, tournament fees, etc. We can discuss this by phone or email, if you wish to call me at 519-703-4088 or email me at my personal email A dormitory style of living is possible, although, given your age, I would strongly recommend taking advantage of our homestay program, where you would live and be cared for by a solid Canadian family. Hope to hear from you soon. We already have one Korean student-athlete, and would be proud to have you as our second. We know what a world powerhouse Korea is in baseball. I have travelled there twice.

    Good morning,
    We just received an email from our coach about your open house on June 24th, We would have loved to attend. Do you have another open house scheduled for the Stratford area. Your email was forwarded to the parents on June 24th at 2pm. As you can see my son and I’m sure a lot of other kids in the AAA and AA system in Guelph would have attended.

    • Hi Chris:
      Thanks for the note. I know that Wes MacVicar, our liaison to the Avon Maitland District School Board, has also had some correspondence with Guelph, and as a guy who sees your players regularly, there are absolutely some candidates over there that we are interested in. Better still, I may have some scholarship funding for one or two players (we’d like more, but that is all I can grant at this time). Please give me a call when it is convenient, 519-703-4088, or drop me another note as to how/when is best. We appreciate your interest, and have a great deal of respect for the way Guelph operates!
