Expectations, from our Professional Baseball Coaches
In order to be part of Strive, you must do the following:
a. Players will show respect at all times for each other, the professional coaching staff, opposing team, parents, fans, umpires. In addition, players will respect themselves by eating properly and resting properly.
b. “You” and “I” – Being a member of the Strive Baseball program requires players to be unselfish. Players must understand and abide the following concept: Program first, team second, and players third.
c. Sportsmanship – The tenet of good sportsmanship is an important part of the baseball program. We will encourage and support our teammates and we will respectfully acknowledge opponents – win or lose.
i. Display style and class AT ALL TIMES.
a. Student first, athlete second.
Players are expected to exhibit commitment and dedication both on and off the field during the entire year.
a. Be accountable: Players are expected to be on time for all practices, games and team functions.
b. Work hard – Player is expected to come to practice and games willing to give 100% at all times. Giving your best effort at all times does not require you to be the best player on the team. In fact, it has nothing to do with talent. Players are expected to run hard on and off of the field, to hustle between drills at practice, to run out “routine” balls and to hustle back to the dugout after striking out.
