Hardball U/Team Citius August Speed, Agility, and Strength Program and Fall Tryouts
As we put the closing touches on our spring and summer schedule in July, we are busy planning for our August speed extravaganza with speed and motion guru Ed Lovelace from New York City. Rather than go into a lengthy reintroduction to Ed, we would just ask each of you to go to the website www.greycompass.com/edlovelace.html . The program will begin with Ed himself on August 9 and 10. Our players will get hands on treatment and personal guidance and tips from Ed for the first weekend. The program will continue on August 16-17, 23-24, and 30-31 led by the Hardball U/TC coaching staff. We will be working on baseball specific actions and training the body to be athletic.
Tryouts for fall baseball will be on August 16 at Northrup Park in Boerne for league age players 10-12 from 10:00 AM-12:00 noon. Tryouts for league age players 13-14 will be from 1:00 - 3:00 PM also at Northrup Park. There will be a follow up tryout for both age groups from 1:00-3:00 on August 17 at Northrup Park.
Hardball University is an elite baseball academy grounded in the fundamentals that have made baseball the American pastime. Formerly Alamo Elite Academy, Hardball University is the culmination of a project designed to provide players 10-18 years of age with a multifaceted approach to developing their potential. Each player receives crucial individual instruction while learning to use his abilities for the best advantage of his team. Staff members of the Hardball University organization are committed to readying players for the stair steps to success that occur at each level of organized baseball. Coaches of Hardball U teams have rich backgrounds in the game. All have been players at the collegiate level or beyond. Some have also been high school or college coaches and Division I recruiters. Others have been professional scouts. Such diversity in backgrounds assures that players for Hardball U receive not only excellent instruction but also benefit from a network of contacts as they move from high school into the college arena.
At the heart of the Hardball University philosophy is the belief that every player can, with proper guidance and leadership, meet his goals. A vivid testimony to that philosophy lies in the fact that over 90% of high school seniors who have played for Hardball U and have been rewarded with the opportunity to play college baseball.
