As you can see with this team, you will be getting an experienced coach that has many years’ experience with kids in coach pitch arena; especially in the 9u age group.    Coach Jackson’s philosophy is to work on the fundamentals with the kids and really work to improve their baseball IQ.    During practice you will see him stop the kids mid-play and ask “why” they did something.   Right or wrong, he will ask, just so they understand the “why”.

 

Coach Jackson does not have a set date for tryouts yet, but he plans to have something set up end of June after he returns from his 11u teams USSSA Global World Series event in Gulf Shores.   If you are interested in more information or trying out, there is a registration link on the right of this webpage.   Please click there and complete the form.    If you would like Coach Jackson to contact you directly, you can request this in the form as well.
