We coach individuals who want to play ball. One part of our winning formula is ensuring that each person has the right coach at the right time. This allows them to move up the ladder of success, whatever road they take.
For example, the 9U to 11U age levels are considered “Club Baseball 101” years where coaches work on the basic fundamentals of the game – such as base stealing, holding runners, cutoffs, and pick-off plays.
Typically, these players make as many mistakes as they do plays. Besides just learning the fundamental skills required to catch, throw, hit and play the game, for many of them this is their first experience with playing for coaches that demand more discipline and a higher level of play from them.
Players at this age lack confidence, so it is important to have coaches that can balance discipline and instill confidence in young players at the same time. It takes more patience to work with players at 10 years old than it does with players at 18.
