Junior Baseball Coaching is a structured youth development training program that allows youth players to begin training at an early age a better way. We believe every child that trains with us is unique and one of a kind.
Junior Baseball Coaching started back in 2013 with a view to help youth and junior players excel at baseball and believe that there is a different way to train and enhance their development. Over the years we have helped develop countless players to be selected in Little League Teams, Junior League Teams, Senior League Teams, State & Country Teams as well as Australian Teams.
Junior Baseball Coaching is owned and run by Greg & Ric Wickham. The father and son team are the leaders in developing Youth & Junior Baseball Athletes in Australia. Coach Greg and Coach Ric take multiple trips a year over to the U.S.A. for seminars and meetings to discover what is new about developing baseball athletes as well as updating their training protocols. Over the years Coach Greg and Coach Ric have built strong relationships and consulted with some of the greatest minds in baseball from Academy Owners, Pitching Coaches, Hitting Coaches, College Coaches, Minor League Coaches, Major League Coaches, MLB Scouts, Physical Therapists and Strength & Conditioning Coaches across the United States and the World.
In 2005, with over 20 years baseball coaching experience, Coach Ric began looking at baseball training and more importantly development in a completely different angle. Baseball training in Australia just wasn't where it should be. A change was needed. Proper development was needed. After extensive conversations with Coach Greg over the years, they decided to create Junior Baseball Coaching to help baseball families view development in a different way.
JBC have a different view on the development of all Youth & Junior athletes. JBC do not believe in the conventional wisdom of ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL training. At a young age players who get placed in a One-Size-Fits-All training method tend to find it harder to develop later in life as bad habits have been built into their system which are ingrained into how they train. Development over the years simply becomes turning up to training and going through the same things day in day out. The growth becomes plateaued.
