YOUTH PREP

Coaching youth baseball requires a combination of technical expertise, effective communication skills, and a focus on creating a positive and enjoyable learning environment. Here are some key points for our youth prep foundation program.

  • We emphasize the basics of baseball, such as proper throwing, catching, fielding, hitting, and base running techniques. Break down skills into simple, easy-to-understand steps, and provide ample opportunities for practice and repetition.

  • We adapt our coaching methods to suit the age and skill level of our players. Younger players may need more basic instruction and repetitive drills, while older players can handle more advanced strategies and techniques.

  • We encourage and support our players through positive reinforcement. Recognize their efforts, celebrate their achievements, and provide constructive feedback to help them improve. We avoid excessive criticism or negativity, as it can hinder their development and enjoyment of the game, however, we will be truthful in the process and hold players accountable for training focus, hustle, attitude and positive words to themselves and others. We are not a babysitting service and will hold all players accountable at their level. LIFE LESSONS are part of the farm philosophy.

  • We recognize that each player is unique and has different strengths and weaknesses, therefore we tailor our coaching to address individual needs and provide opportunities for players to develop their skills and confidence. We do not believe there is a one size fits all system, however many players will follow the farm training matrix throughout the years of training here at the farm.

  • We teach the importance of teamwork, cooperation, and sportsmanship. Encourage players to support and respect each other, communicate on the field, and understand their roles within the team. Playing 9 vs 1 is key.

Here at the farm we are always telling parents that developing your child’s skills is like a slow baked roast on the holidays. You want to put them in the oven and cook slowly. Don’t put in the microwave as it takes time and patience to develop in this very technical sport. The secret here is just have FUN and DEVELOP your player slowly for long term SUCCESS!
