Keys to building a successful program at all levels. Universal Training. Ways to help coaches get better. What things have Covid-19 helped with in the development of the game. Mentorship program. Who were some of your mentors and what have you continued to use that you learned from them? Training uncomfortable, how important and how. So much to the episode. THOMARI STORY-HARDEN Thomari Story-Harden is the CEO / Director of Team Avenue Baseball, a student/athlete baseball developmental program and Assc Scout for the Philadelphia Phillie’s. Thomari partnered with Major League Baseball to form the new Central Valley RBI program. Thomari is also a Mentor and Coach to the players of Worldwide Baseball Prospects recruitment planning program A local standout at El Cerrito High, the 6 ‘7 – 270lb Story-Harden starred in football and baseball before getting drafted in the 8th Round of the 1998 Amatuer Draft by the LA Dodgers. He played with the LA Dodgers organization for 6 years. Thomari then made the move to the East Coast playing 3 years of Independent Baseball in which he made the Frontier League All Star Team in 2005. Once his pro career ended, Thomari re-focused his commitment to giving back to the youth of the Central Valley (California) area by starting the Team Avenue Baseball Academy and Avenue Outreach, a non-profit baseball school. On top of tutoring players on the field, Story-Harden assisted in placing youth in college at all levels of play. His philosophy when working with young adults is to stress academics and family before athletics. “I truly believe the statement made by Tommy Lasorda the, “The Road to Success comes through the Avenue of Hard work.” Hall of Fame Coach (Fresno State) Bob Bennett has changed my whole perspective in terms of coaching. He has invested years into mentoring me as a coach. I thank him for his time with me and our players, he has changed my life. Meeting him has given me the opportunity to share a piece of Coach Bennett with the world. I have learned that just because I played professional baseball does not make me a good coach. Coach Bennett has taught me how to teach based on the player, every player is different. Teaching in detail and holding players accountable to practice fundamentals is essential in the baseball development process. I personally care about every player that plays for Team Avenue Baseball; most importantly I care about what happens after the TAB Experience in terms of success stories. My coaching goal is to help players clearly define their goals and construct a realistic plan in accomplishing their goals.

Jeff Krushell, Krush Performance, MLB International Athletic Develop Coach, Author Performance Plan
Understanding how to set up a Long Term Development Plan for your baseball/softball players. Also, learn what is detrimental to a youth players development. As Coaches, Organizations, Presidents of Leagues, we need to begin organizing baseball programs so players have more fun, practice more, following the rules of windows of trainability and get better individually so they have more fun. In the USA and some parts of the world we need to change our systems of competition and training so that we can see more players playing and also playing for a longer time period. We need to look at things like, to much specialization, to many games vs practices and number of injuries caused that reduces the life span of players. Yes we in the USA have 26 million amateur players and will produce some very good elite players. But we would be producing more, reducing injuries and having more players last longer and play the game. Things discussed. Since we are missing competition now because of the coronavirus, does this benefit or hurt young players, we delve into both areas. Long term Development plan, what it looks like and why is it a proven method to help players better enjoy the game. Canada has been instituting the LTDP for years and they show success, we discuss this area. Specialization at young ages is a development killer, why? We should the different ages groups and what kind of scales do you need for # of games and # of practices. We look at other countries that have instituted similar plans, developed their model with less competition based systems during the season at the young ages. How does traveling all the time to play become detrimental to the long term development of young players. In certain systems there is so much pressure to compete, and what is the right balance. One of the most important phases of development is sleep and recovery. Why? Where does strength fit in the windows of trainability, you will be surprised. Teaching players to be self evaluators of their skills and using the coaches help is very important. Concentrating on your strengths and understanding your areas of potential (better way to phrase weaknesses) Be careful of always telling young players how good they are, why? Movement is critical in the early ages of windows of trainability, why? Getting players to be part of the decision making is critical. Utilizing weighted baseballs to gain velocity can be detrimental if you do not understand when is the right time. There are times to use weighted objects to teach the body to move in space. And so much more.

Baseball Canada’s Long Term Athletes Development program, the model around the world
Andre Lachance Baseball Canada’s Long Term Athletes Development program is the model around the world. Question, are we destroying more baseball development then producing and losing players in the game? In this episode we continue the discussion on the importance of the Long Term Athlete Development program which has proven to make better players and keep more players in the game. Canada competes with the USA and other top international countries, find out why. This discussed: The Canadian Long Term Athlete Development Progra, LTAD, has proven to be extremely effective and shown great results in more players playing the game and playing it better. As an organization, Coach, President of an Association and Parent are you willing to look at our competition process and make changes for the better. In winning at the young levels the best way to produce better players and keep them in the game longer? Kaiwzen, Japanese word for improvement is the foundation on the LTAD program. Change for the better. Key to the Japanese successful competition. Are we willing to look at other sports, countries on why they are successful at certain sports. Kids are not mini adults. Coaches education is critical to the development of proper programs and organizations. Continual educational programs for volunteer programs is a must to help grow and develop the sport. How we incentivize players is important. Praise efficiency rather then results. A competition structure where players are rewarded for what they are doing well in many aspects of the game. Looking closer on how we identify talent. And so much more to this episode.
