Our 66ers Baseball Academy provides the most comprehensive training for high school players in the area. Our entire staff, facility and resources are top-notch as we coach, train, mentor and guide players to make the most of their abilities. We will push each player and challenge them to get out of their comfort zone to learn how to deal with all the successes and failures that baseball brings.
Our purpose is to develop players in a safe, friendly, professional and fun atmosphere. Our goal is to train all players to become the best they can be and to illustrate that meaningful hard work is critical. To tell a player, or a person, to “Try Harder,” “Go Faster,” or “Quicker” are hollow gestures, even though the goal is meaningful. What does it mean to ‘try harder’, ‘go faster’, or scream ‘quicker’ other than it sounds good? If proper technique is not executed, then the player is just reinforcing improper techniques and movements, thus leading to the creation of improper muscle memory, which is what the body will quickly return to when fatigued.
Our program is to instill the proper techniques, movements, comprehension of the game and mental preparation so that directives have meaning and purpose, thus leading to strong player development. By doing so, when fatigue does set in, the player is more inclined to revert to the proper techniques, leading to a positive outcome on various levels. Thus, the organizational goals will focus on the fundamentals of baseball, the fundamentals of the game, the athletic movement needed to play the game, training core areas and strengthening the mental aptitude needed to play the game. These are areas of the game that are often overlooked.
