LYBO's new youth development program, the Loveland Baseball Academy (LBA), is launching this winter.  LYBO VP of Player/Coach Development, Loveland High School baseball player, and former professional baseball player, Mike Wagner, is leading this Academy.  (bio attached in pdf form)

Register for spring baseball and the Academy now! 
The LBA will be for players who are interested in improving foundational skills through more focused training.  It is a bridge between recreational and competitive baseball in a fun, organized program that provides a positive learning environment for developing baseball skills.  

The intent of the LBA is to provide professional instruction, practice plans for coaches, and more baseball while cultivating a competitive and fun environment. This will include the following:


Pre-Season indoor practices - once or twice per week depending the age group
Focused on individual skill development
This will kick off at the beginning of February and conclude in late March
Outdoor practices - once or twice per week depending the age group 
Focused on situational game ready development during the Little League season
The option to form/participate in All-Stars / post-season play at the conclusion of the Little League season to play in additional games and/or the D-9 Tournament (# of games will depend on age group and interest)

Participation in Little League is required for Academy registration, so you'll register and pay once.  Just select the Academy option during registration to have the cost added and be included.  There is no tryout to participate in the LBA.  The program and training are designed for players (families) who are serious about working on skill development, and who are mentally and physically ready for more advanced training. We will need additional volunteer coach participation as well. A structured plan will be provided to these volunteers to follow and following this program will be expected. If the VP of Player / Coach Development judges a player / coach who has signed up to not be ready to benefit from the program, we will talk to the parents / coaches in the first few weeks and come up with a plan. Baseball is as much of a skill as it is a sport and requires a commitment to develop these skills.  


The Academy will require some help from additional volunteers. The success of this program will depend on interest level, registration numbers, volunteers, etc... LYBO will provide assistance in practice plans, indoor practice availability, and guidance in scheduling post Little League season games. We will need help with implementing the plan from parents volunteering to lead the practices and execute the plan. 


Registration is open NOW! If this academy is of interest, please register by the end of December.  Once registration is complete we will create age appropriate groups and assign instructors.


After we gather the interest level of the community through registration we will hold an information session to discuss the specifics. Plan will be to do this in early January. 


More to come. Thank you for your interest and commitment to youth baseball. If you have any questions please email me at the address below.
