DIAMOND JAXX 18U

 

Program is designed for serious baseball players, winter and summer schedule. Players should have the desire to play at the collegiate level and want to become the best all-around student-athlete they can be.  Our staff has helped multiple players continue their baseball playing into college and take great pride in that.  We train out of Diamond Sports Training Center and play most of our games south of Seattle in the Greater South Sound League, Diamond Sports and GSL Tournaments.  We have had players from Wenatchee, Yakima, Quincy, Vancouver, Lacey, Olympia, Tumwater, Kent, Auburn and other cities all take part in our year round program for the past eight years.

 

We will have three to four teams between the ages of 16-18 all players in the program will have the opportunity to play at the 18/19u level if they are deserving of the opportunity.  We thinks it is important for players to play against older competition to help better prepare them for high school and college.

The Saints coaching staff has many years of baseball and coaching experience. The 2015 Saints will practice twice per week at Diamond Sports indoor facility and will participate in roughly 7 tournaments with at least one or two tournaments being in Eastern Washington or out of state.

 

The 14U Saints will also be in the Puyallup Select baseball league that starts competing in April. Saints will start practicing in Oct and will run through July with Tournaments starting in late March or April.

The Saints Baseball plan is simple: Establish a competitive team with great kids (and families) that can get “ back to the basics” and bring fun back into the sport. We will focus on teaching baseball fundamentals in a positive way; choosing to motivate the players by direct instruction & encouragement; not sarcasm or humiliation. The Saints Coaches will work to teach the fundamental value of sports & life lessons learned through participation. A successful athlete needs comprehensive physical, mental & emotional training. It is important our players are taught about accountability & the importance of a good attitude. Our goal is to see this team of young men develop their baseball skills while learning that character, integrity, & values are just as important as their physical talent.

 

The Saints are looking for a player or two to fill out the 2015 roster. For an individual tryout or any questions please contact Coach Chris at 206-841-0913 or email at c_w_p@comcast.net
