Expectations

The NHAA believes strongly in keeping things simple when teaching the game of baseball and softball. With that in mind we have developed five goal areas for each of the age groups. As a coach we want to keep these five goal areas in mind every time we plan a practice. They represent the fundamental building blocks for success. The goals at one level need to be accomplished before the goals at the next level can be pursued

These are the Five Goals that we believe and you should expect your child to have achieved at the completion of the Bronco League Level:

  • Learning the Basic Rules - infield fly rule; balks.
  • Baserunning - leads; steals; extra-base hits.
  • Pitching and Throwing Mechanics - wind-up versus stretch; four-seam grip; shuffle, throw, follow' pitcher covering first
  • Hitting - repetitions; drill work (tee work, soft toss, short toss, stick-ball, lob toss, one-arm drill); bunting.
  • Learning Team Fundamentals - cutoffs and relays; basic bunt defenses; basic first-and-third situations; underhand flip and double plays; defending the steal; infield and outfield communication and priorities.
