U10 Bombers

The U10 year is the Bombers last year on the little league diamond. The off-season is spent learning the building blocks of being a successful baseball player. We start building these core fundamentals in the fall. During fall workouts, the coaches start reminding the players of basic fundamental flaws in their swings, throwing mechanics, and fielding technique. These fall practices are done once a week and are not meant to be intense training sessions. However, it is a great opportunity to utilize the last few weeks of outside field availability to get to know our players’ strengths and weaknesses. By doing this in a non-competitive environment, the players can feel free to tinker with their mechanics without worrying about pressure of game situations.
 

With the energy of the Fall behind us, we use the information learned about the players to continue work inside starting in mid-December. In the indoor workouts we focus on correcting bad habits noticed in the fall. The practices can be tedious and filled with coaching repetitive motions. All in all, the Bombers will have more than 20 winter practices as a team. The winter training aspect of being a Bombers players is critical to the team's success. A large part of our team resources are spent making sure our kids get time on an actual field, and in the cages. It is imperative our players commit to the weekly routine of swinging the bat, and practicing proper throwing and fielding techniques. Just like in school, young students and players must master the basics before moving on to more advanced team concepts.

After the six months of off-season training, the U10 Bombers embark on their spring season in early April. The team will play 20 - 24 games. The U10 spring competition can be eye-opening for young players and parents. Up to this point, most of our players have only played in-town spring baseball or travel summer ball. The competition in the spring AAU season is generally a big step up in the competitive level from those two distinct leagues. We hope our players grow from playing strong competition.

Overall, the dedicated off-season followed by playing strong competition in the spring allows our players to reach their maximum potential. Only players that are passionate about being a strong baseball player will truly enjoy being a part of the U10 team.
