Sometimes it’s hard to “trust the process” as they say. Most players and parents are okay with the standard two practices per week and games on the weekend. It is just not enough for those that want to play this game at a high level, unless already predispositioned with a large amount of athletic ability. The value of baseball education a private or professional team instructor can give you is in the day to day, game to game growth and development of your athlete.
Athletes fail because they do not provide the requisite consistency in training their skill sets. Baseball requires you to be multi-faceted in terms of complex motor skills physically and the mental fortitude to withstand more performance-based failures than any other sport in the world.
My teams are for the parents that value growth and development
If you want to play and compete, 2 practices per week are sufficient.
if you want to compete and win, 3-4 practice days are required.
If you want to play at the top of your game, compete, win championships and excel, then baseball must become a lifestyle.
I know too many people that think that 2 days are enough, maybe sprinkle a lesson in here and there to “keep the kid on track”. Good days and bad days at the plate or on the field can directly be attributed to how much time that player has put in work off the field. It takes time to LEARN what’s needed then time to apply those skills on the field consistently, when tired, and under pressure against the best competition around. You fail, you succeed, you evaluate, you plan, you recommit, you work hard. Wash, Rinse, Repeat. That is how you develop a performance athlete.
