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 14 and under, 15 and under, 16 and under and 18 and under 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.
This team will play in the summer in the AABC Connie Mack division of the South Coast Baseball League.
We play in the summer on Sundays (double-headers). We play in the AABC Mickey Mantle division of the South Coast Baseball Leauge.
