Quakes Baseball Academy offers local area baseball players the opportunity to be part of an elite baseball program. We have tryouts throughout the year. Currently we have 13U through 18U travel teams.
At Quakes, we strive to make sure that each player has access to all of the tools and coaching that is needed to continue to grow their skills. Another Quakes goal is to make sure our athletes are aware of all that it takes to excel in their sport and the tools needed to improve targeted skills.
Along with scheduled practices, we have conditioning Monday thru Thursday evenings at the Quakes Baseball Academy facility in Lake Forest. The conditioning program consists of Yoga, Pilates, core conditioning, Vertimax® speed training and Plyometrics.
In the summer we have field practice, taking ground balls and running. We believe running should be done as many days as possible. With the program they will specifically train in running two to three days per week. This training is done with "bullet belts" and harnesses in order to help their explosive first step so they can become better and faster athletes.
Hitting practice is done at the Quakes facility in Lake Forest. The players are encouraged to attend the open hitting sessions as often as their time permits, before or after conditioning. This will give them the repetition they need to improve on their swing mechanics.
18U Team (with both 17U and 18U players)
This team will play in the summer in the AABC Connie Mack division of the South Coast Baseball League. Our 17U and 18U players both play in the 18U division in this league.
16U Team (with both 15U and 16U players)
We play in the summer on Sundays or late Saturdays (double-headers). We play in the AABC Mickey Mantle division of the South Coast Baseball Leauge. Our 15U and 16U players both play in the 16 division in this league.
