Youth Division Spring Training

One thing that separates CCB from other programs is our attention to detail. We look to build the athlete from the ground up and teach them the ins and outs of this game. Baseball is a game of inches. It is about honing in the minute details and executing fundamentals. Spring Training is a chance for our players to perfect their craft starting from the beginning stages. It’s not about jumping into tournaments. To see success, you must build success!

Training Dates: Sunday, January 6, 2019 –  Sunday, January 27, 2019
Commitment: Sundays only
Ages: 9-14u

 

Format

 

Stretch/Active Warm-up

Trilogy Health and Wellness Strength and Conditioning Coach, Chase Spivey, will be working with our athletes on a proper warm-up routine. Chase brings a wealth of knowledge on proper functional movement training. To be an athlete, you must move like an athlete!

Throw

We install a throwing program specific to each position. For guys who are utility players we have a certain throwing program to follow.

Base running

We break down the proper form, technique, and strategy. Players will learn how to read the game from an offensive standpoint and learn how to gain bases without the help of a coach.

Fielding

We breakdown basic CCB principles of fielding and hone in the fundamentals. Players will learn the technique and responsibilities of every position in the infield. Outfielders will learn the techniques of tracking a baseball as well as learn routes and how to read a ball without watching it. Expect to be a utility player!

Pitchers

Will install proper mechanics, knowledge, and confidence. We will STUDY the game. Pitchers will be given a throwing and arm program that will be completed regularly through all seasons played for CCB.

Catchers

We will learn proper receiving and blocking techniques and join a study session with pitchers to learn how to call pitches.

Hitters

We will learn how to be aggressive to fastballs in the zone and be able to hit the ball to ALL fields with power. If you can take away and divide the plate into pieces, you can form a plan for success!

Mind/Body Care:

Between our entire coaching staff we have bachelor degrees in many areas however we do have three B.S. in Kinesiology and one in Sports Psychology. We preach physical and mental health. Physically, we take pride in teaching our athletes how to train their bodies to uphold the demands of a baseball season. In addition, we teach our athletes about proper ways to speak and think that breeds success. Speak it into existence; speak in positives!
