Why The NYC Travel Prep League?

7-8yrs. Old

Repetition at this age is key. Players are assessed and position recommendations will be communicated. The goal is for all players of this age bracket to consistently be able to play catch without dropping the ball and routinely field ground balls and execute accurate throws during game play.

Hitting / Offense

Players will be taught the strike zone and the "smash zone." They will be coached to swing with intent and make consistent contact.

Catchers

Introduction to the position and the "tools of ignorance."

Pitchers

Players are taught basic 4 seam grip, lift, separate and throw.
