Madison West Baseball Guiding Principles:
All teams will have the common goals of:
Treating the coaching staff, teammates, parents, and yourself with respect, having fun, increasing the desire to improve, building on previously learned skills in order to provide continuity within the program, and playing the game with integrity and class.
Freshmen Team: At the Freshmen, level our focus is to teach players skills and fundamentals necessary to be competitive. At this level players will be introduced to the Madison West Baseball philosophies of hitting, pitching, throwing, fielding, base running, and other Madison West Baseball principles. Improvement, both as a team and individually, is an extremely important goal. Players will be prepared to compete at the next level at the completion of their season. Playing time will not be distributed equally, and is not guaranteed.
Junior Varsity Team: At the JV level, the players will build on skills and fundamentals that were developed at the Freshmen level. Players will learn how to compete on a more competitive level. Players will be prepared to compete at the Varsity level, and will be introduced to higher end skills and drills. Playing time will not be distributed equally, and is not guaranteed.
Varsity Team: At the Varsity level, players will be able to excel at the skills and fundamentals that they have learned at the previous two levels. They will also be introduced to more complicated skills and higher end concepts of baseball. Players will be expected to perform their roles to the best of their ability in order to help their team to win. Playing time will not be distributed equally, and is not guaranteed.
