Program Changes for the 2020 Season

 

Our #1 GOAL is the health, safety and arm care of your player. 

We don't play for weekend trophy's, we are focused on long-term development.  We want to develop and grow together each year by learning proper technique, fundamentals, and good sportsmanship.  Once our players finish the 14U program, they will be at the high school level and competing for their Freshman, JV, and Varsity baseball teams.

How many programs can say that?

Now that Grand Haven Bucs Youth Baseball is officially affiliated with Grand Haven High School Baseball, we are excited to announce the following changes.  Season length, amount of games, tournaments, and practice plans will all be age specific.

With the help of the high school program, we’ve been able to lower the price.  We want everyone to have the opportunity to play competitive baseball.  We also offer scholarships.  If you have questions, please email youngbucsbaseball@gmail.com.

*We also offer scholarships. Please contact us for more information.

COACHES

Our youth coaches will be trained by GHHS coaches to unify the youth and high school programs to teach proper fundamentals for strong development.  We will have the same head coach at each level every season.  Our head coaches will no longer move up with their team, allowing players to have a different head coach each season.   This is similar to high school baseball.  We will fill head coaching roles with non-affiliated coaches.  Parents will have the opportunity to be assistant coaches each season.

SEASON FORMAT

We’ve shortened the season and the amount of games for all age groups.  We will continue to play in the BATL league for all weekly games.

PRACTICE

Each age level will have practice plans that will be designed by GHHS coaches that mimic their own practices.  Every team practice plan will be age specific and will build intensity as players progress each season.

TOURNAMENTS

8U will play in one Grand Haven tournament. All other teams will play in both Grand Haven tournaments, with 11U-14U also playing in one additional tournament.

WINTER TRAINING

We will also eliminate most, if not all winter practice.  Our preseason practice plan will prepare our players for their season.  This will allow our players to be able to play winter sports, work different muscle groups, and get a break from baseball.
