Purpose: The advanced baseball program exists as an extension of and to complement the recreational baseball program. As such, the GWHYB advanced baseball program schedules its activities to co-exist with the recreational baseball program. The purpose of the advanced baseball program is to provide an "advanced" player that has a higher skill level and has a passion for playing an opportunity to compete at a higher level. This will be accomplished through advanced level instruction and more advanced competition.
Approach: GWHYB will develop players selected to the AB baseball program by reinforcing proper baseball fundamentals, teaching advanced concepts appropriate to each individual age group and by offering advanced level competition.
