Plans for 13U 2022 (We will start to build this in the Fall of 2021 with tryouts):

2. Goals.

1. Competitive Tournament Team

2. KVBSA League Team

Players may tryout for one or both.  The two rosters will likely not be the same.

We need more baseball minded help.  We need coaches that played the game and know baseball.  We need to be able to trust we can break up into stations and rely on proper mechanics being taught.  Thus, we will be looking to take the past two seasons as experience and alter our path forward. 

 

We will be looking to build a tournament only team for the 2022 season.   Our tournament team goals will be to play USSSA A and AA.  We'd really like to establish a winning team at the A level and compete in a USSSA A World Series.  To do that, we would need to be able to compete in AA as well.  So we'd be looking for solid players that we can take to both AA and A events, registering as an A team for the World Series.   At every level, when you get to the last few teams standing, they can all play up a level.  Winning a USSSA A World Series is a realistic goal we would like to pursue.

Practices will be optional for those that play on other league teams, but held during the week allowing us to work on improving areas we need to for tournament play.   However, practices will be extremely beneficial

Tips for Tryouts & What to Expect:

Don't be late!  If you are serious, let us know.  We plan on having a variety of players from just looking to seriously wanting to play for the Hornets.  We want the serious, committed ones! 

Listen at all times.  We are looking for coach-able kids.  The ones that can take what we teach and execute.  We want hard workers, willing to go the extra mile.  We want kids that love to play baseball.

What to Expect:

We will put players in a variety of situations where we can look hard at mechanics and fundamentals.  Pitchers may throw on the side to catchers, in some cases they may throw to live hitters. We will split out into groups working on ground balls and fly balls.  

L

​Each hitter will get the same amount of pitches.  Don't be discouraged if you swing and miss, even at all of them.  We are looking at hitting stances, weight, triggers (load), front foot, back foot, head on the ball, bat speed, hips, etc.  Swing at anything you can potentially hit.  We can spot good swings.

 

Above all, just come and have fun.  We don't expect the kids to know all the correct mechanics.  There are a lot of little things we will each notice.  We will spot potential.
