Important Note: Our priority as a program is the development of young players into well rounded baseball players and people. All our coaches are teachers first and we want to create positive, fun environment on the field. That being said, this is competitive baseball. Team coaches and managers will coach first to give our teams the best chance to win each game and secondly to try to give players different experiences on the field to expand their horizons.
Players are expected to show continual improvement and take initiative to work on their skill sets to contribute to the team’s success.
We care deeply about all of our players and I want our players to return season after season to build and create a great program together!
