Will this help my son for post high school opportunities?
Very likely yes. If a player has talent, work ethic, loves the game, good grades, this summer program will help them enormously in their baseball development and provide some options for college baseball.
Can I play on another team during this program?
As long as our practices and games come first. You are not allowed to miss our events for an outside team.
What if we have a family event planned during this time?
Family always trumps sports. Nothing is more important than the family institution. Having said that, if you are going to miss an event please have the courtesy and respect to let the manager and coach know as soon as possible.
Who are the coaches?
The lead coach is Dave Holt. I will be conducting the practices and the majority of ball games. At times when multiple teams are playing simultaneously I will have an assistant managing the event.
How does the fundraising work?
You will be able to raise money to offset your fee by participating in our online fundraiser. Through friends, family, co-workers you can bring your costs down significantly. You raise as much as you want and pay for all, or not. It is totally up to you and your family.
