BPA was founded on the premise of providing an opportunity of top instruction, for players that have a desire to play the game beyond a recreational level. Our purpose is to ensure players learn to play the game the right way and compete at the highest level. We aspire to positively influence a player’s next-level opportunity by providing them with the knowledge and skills required to play the game to the maximum of their potential.
Seeing someone miss an opportunity in their life, especially when its something they have so much passion and desire to be great at, in our eyes, is a travesty. Preventing this from happening to our players, and continuing to push of program alumni, beyond where they ever could of dreamed of playing is why we do what we do.
The BPA Way
Through high-paced and intense practices, we focus on the physical and mental details of the game, with an emphasis on accountability. Optimal learning environments occurs when one is placed out of their comfort zone, and operating at the edge of their ability. Our highest priority is to at all times create an environment of care, transparency and concentrated discomfort, to make sure a player has the opportunity to maximize their potential.
We believe a coach’s duty is to prepare their players to not only be successful at their current level, but advance them to the next level in a way for them to thrive. We must develop genuine relationships, so we may be an ongoing resource as our players move through their playing career, and excel beyond high school.
BPA is composed of instructors with extensive playing experience, providing our players with first-hand knowledge of what it takes to compete at the highest level. Every coach or instructor has previously played collegiate baseball at the Division I level, prior to playing professional baseball. Our staff puts players in a position to develop in a manner that allows them to fulfill their potential, while advancing them to the right fit, for success on and off the field.
