Coaching and Program

Coaching Staff

Drew Thomas, former professional baseball player and instructor at Illinois Baseball Academy has been hired to support the program with 12 professional coaching staff.  We will look for other specialists to bring in for things like pitching, fielding, sportsmanship, and hitting.  We also encourage player parents/coaches to supplement, learn tips, and teach the Warrior Way and DYBA Travel Baseball Technique Guide.  

The Program

The Elite Baseball Training Program consists of highly structured and organized practice sessions where individual development is the focus.  The program will make it fun and age appropriate but be a pathway to both varsity and college baseball.

The program is designed to maximize player development and minimize the focus on results. The program will require players to commit to a process over an outcome. This will redirect focus on what is within each player’s inner locus of control; discipline, motivation, and organization, and drive the actions needed to necessitate the outcome each player is moving towards.  This will therefore move player’s focus away from results including all stats (batting average, on base percentage, ERA), wins and losses, strikeouts etc.  The goal of the program is to cultivate players' love for the game and feeling of developmental progress.  The measure of success is individual player progress rather than individual achievement.
