What do you do in practices?
Coaches develop and reinforce the major baseball fundamentals, and begin teaching team plays. Fundamental include proper throwing mechanics, batting stance and hitting fundamentals, fielding skills, above-the-waist catching, and base running.
We emphasize having fun together as a team, learning positive sportsmanship, and developing players’ confidence in their athletic abilities.
