Training & Development

How JBC View Training & Development

The main purpose of Junior Baseball Coaching Training & Development is to get boys and girls enjoying the game of baseball whilst learning new skills and techniques. We coach to high standards and we constantly stay up to date with what’s new in the game. We will provide your child with the best coaching and will help your child become a better baseball player.

Our overall view on Training & Development is One-Size-Fits-All Training ISN'T going to help any player. Each player is unique in their own way. Depending on what age the player is we focus on what they need right now so they can make the jump to the next level. There is no silver bullet in development. It is a long road that has ups and downs. Until you appreciate the failures you will never know what success tastes like.

One-On-ONe Training

Training-&-Development-2

A typical 1 hour One-On-One session goes like this - 5 minutes of warm up consisting of running to poles, stretching then straight into throwing. If you are Pitching, the coach will squat behind home plate and tell you if that was a ball or a strike, good pitch or bad pitch. If you are Hitting, the coach will throw you balls and tell you good hit or bad hit. All of the time giving you Verbal Cues - Try this, do that, get here, get there. need more this, need more that...blah blah blah. Verbal cues in no way or form help your child become better or explain exactly how a pitch is thrown or a swing actually happens. The Warm Up is mediocre, there is no Arm Care before throwing, the Instructions given are generic and there is no Recovery at the end. This to us is a recipe for Arm Pain. There is 60 minutes of absolute nonsense and false belief that your child is getting better.

At a JBC One-On-One Session we do not cookie cut any processes. We have a full body Warm Up, go through Arm Care Protocols, no limit on throwing time, train to fit your child needs and then have Recovery and the end of the session. We do not believe a 1 hour session is good for any player and that is why all JBC One-On-One Sessions go from 1.5 to 2 hours.

Group Training

Training-&-Development-4

In a group environment (2 or more) you have players competing against each other.  This is a great way to develop players. All players involved are developing in a way that focuses directly on the subconscious side of training and not the conscience side. By taking away the thought process in a grouped environment, players use their instincts at a rapid rate and develop a lot faster.

If child "A" throws the ball at 55mph, what does child "B" want to do? Throw the ball at 56mph of course. If child "A" has a ball exit speed off the bat at 60mph, what does child "B" want to do? Have a ball exit speed of 61mph. A competitive training session is fun for all players.

At all JBC training sessions we objectively measure certain things to give instant feedback to the players. We strongly believe words get in the way of development and that is why we measure and let the player see their progress right away. Without objectively measuring players performance each training session they do not know what works better and what doesn't work for them. It also gives the parents feedback to how their child is going.

Personalised Programs

Training-&-Development-4

This to JBC is how all players should be training & developing. Personalised programs whether it be throwing or hitting is where all athletes develop at a faster rate. Programs designed to fit your needs will help you discover your way of throwing or hitting better than any coach standing next to you telling you what to do and how to do it.

In a world where One-Size-Fits-All training is much easier for every coach, a personalised program will help you make the decisions on your terms. A personalised program in a group environment where players urge each other, help each other and support each other is the very best environment any player can develop in.

If your child is doing One-On-One sessions weekly, fortnightly or monthly and working on their own at home doing meaningless drills, get them on a Personalised Program. You will see their development rise a lot faster and as a parent, you will save a lot of money in the meantime.
