Know What to Look for in a Youth Baseball Program
Parents, have you ever wondered what it takes to start grooming a good ball player? While every skill is important when it comes to baseball, we know that some players develop them better and faster than others. We strongly believe that if your son can hit, he’ll play. And that’s where we come in. The TRPD program is unlike any other due to our coaching staff, techniques, equipment and the developmental process that each player goes through.
Here at TRPD we do things differently. We focus on teaching professional mechanics that happen at the major league level daily. We focus on getting into a hitting mindset that leads to attacking good pitches instead of letting them go by. And most importantly, we teach our players to hit in a way that will get their high schools to notice them.
Our coaching staff is not “traditional”. We know that playing baseball at a high level does not translate to being able to help players achieve their dreams, so we look for men of character and the ability to effectively communicate baseball and life skills first. A good coach is the one that motivates players to work hard and achieve their goals in a positive, encouraging environment. A TRPD player must also understand that they get better because of the work they put in both at home and during practice. The players must be internally motivated, not externally. We want players to be intentional in achieving what they want through baseball, not drifters.
Additionally, TRPD coaches teach life skills. We make sure the players understand that they are in charge of their career and they determine where they go in baseball. Part of the development process of a player is setting goals and taking actions to achieve them. We focus on individual player achievement and development over winning trophies, so that players learn that hard work leads to improvement and success.
Are your players currently in a positive atmosphere focused on their individual development, both as a player and a person? Are you in a place where you as a parent are included in the process of helping your player grow? If not, your player could be missing out on gaining life skills and lessons that will carry with them for the rest of their life, as well as establishing a relationship that will last long after baseball is gone. Remember, baseball ends for everybody at some point, but who you learn to become through it does not.
