What To Expect With Us

No organization focuses more on individual development than we do. We have players set goals before the start of the season that are specific to their desired focus. Coaches will provide feedback to players weekly on their current progress and areas they still need to focus on. The more versatility a player has, the easier it is to get into the lineup so this is an area we stress. We ask players to master one position before moving on to another, allowing success and confidence to remain at the forefront.

Players have online development logs they maintain to be able to make the connection between the work they put in, and the results they get. It also allows for accountability between coaches and players.

Where they hit in the order is based on our own developed at bat point system. Ultimately, the points they earn are focused on factors they control with the main focuses being on mindset and hitting the ball hard. They will keep their own score after at bats, to be checked by a coach.  Points will be averaged from weekend to weekend to help determine lineups, so players feel in control of where they hit.

We will generally only start 10 on Sundays, with the subs usually working into the game at the halfway point. The following factors will lead into decision making of who starts: performance, effort, attitude, position needed, amount of work put in throughout the week. This will create a system to reward what is going to make them successful in high school, as well as provide an accountability system to keep guys focused on Sunday. Our hope is those who start as a sub are motivated the next week to improve their performance.

All players will have an equal opportunity to earn playing time. As long as players are able to reach the standards we set, they will be able to play those positions in games. The standards are designed to allow players to be competitive and successful in each position. The standards for playing on Sunday will be higher than those necessary to play on Saturday. In this manner, your player will not be blocked at any position because someone is more talented, they are simply competing against themselves.

There will be a tier system that revolves by consistently raising standards and player performance to help prepare them for baseball at higher levels. The goal is for these to be updated weekend to weekend so players can see where they currently are. This will reward and encourage effort and provide negative consequences for not working. Failure to reach standards will result in dropping lower on the tier, which can be earned back by fixing whatever dropped them below the standard. In every case, a player will be told what to work on at home and they need to fix whatever skill they needed to before they can return to the position. Players will not be able to return to a position they were dropped down a tier in until they have put the required amount of work in to close the gap, and can demonstrate success in practice. Once players fix what they need to, they can earn more opportunities in games.

In order to promote players being proactive, learning how to talk to coaches, and taking ownership in what they want, the player himself will have to ask a coach the opportunity to demonstrate their improvement, and that they would like to be given another chance to earn time at a position they were dropped down from. They will not be returned to a position until these conditions are met. Unlimited opportunities will be given to any player that is able to meet standards for any positions.

Practices will be run to maximize reps and learning opportunities. We will usually hit every practice, and get fundamental defensive reps in. Practices typically are station-based to limit standing around, and increase skill retention and enjoyment. We have coaches pull players aside for individual work and feedback.

For all pitchers, we have a standard weekly bullpen practice. We focus on reinforcing correct movements and throwing patterns, teaching them how to be their own coach, how to effectively throw multiple pitches, and proper arm strengthening and care. We also have set workouts to increase stamina and mobility, with multiple stations ran by our main instructors. Players who show improvement and work hard are rewarded with a higher priority on the pitching depth chart on the weekend.

One of the most important skills we can help develop is a healthy relationship between players and parents during sports. We teach parents how to best interact with their players to help them build a sense of self-confidence, and ownership over their baseball career. We teach players how to be their own coach, so parents can focus on rooting for their success only. We teach parents to avoid the dreaded car ride home that leads to frustration and a lack of desire amongst players, instead helping parents focus on deeper long term relationship building. By doing so, the bonds that are built through sports can last even when their playing days are over.
