We believe that every player who walks through our doors regardless of their current skill level can be taught the game of baseball if they possess the desire to
learn and the will to commit the time. A basic concept we use here at ABA is that we will never lie to a parent or a player just to make a dollar. We do believe that
we can help and assist any player but we must sometimes be critical of the mistakes that player is currently making in order to assist him. We will challenge
each and every student to reach a level that they are currently not at. So whether you are the best player on your team or the worst player on your team ABA
wants to challenge you to become a better player than you currently are.
ABA lessons involves exposing a players weakness and finding a method to communicate that weakness to the player. Once the player is able to understand
what his weakness is then we are able to work on isolating that weakness and turning it into a strength. It is then that we concentrate on repetitions to correct
the players. Every player has weakness in his game. ABA has a duty and responsibility to find that weakness and assist the player in correcting it. In turn that
means that there are times a player is asked to change a style that he may feel is his strength. We have seen numerous players over the many years that we
have been instructing come through with great athletic ability and are able to overcome their weakness because of the age level of their opponents. When
informed that they need to change for the future because their opponents are going to become better some are very hesitant and sometimes quite reluctant to
do so. On the other end of the spectrum we have seen players with very little athletic ability struggle early but then develop proper techniques and fundamentals
go on to become good players. ABA lessons will go much further than a typical batting practice or bullpen session.
develop the correct fundamental mechanics we are able to now begin working on his mental preparation and training. ABA will help the player to develop a plan
of action that will give him true confidence for playing the game with aggressiveness and passion in the spirit of competition. ABA instructors do not tell players
that they are great unless they are able to perform the mechanics and the mental training. If ABA was to just tell a player that he was a great player and saturate
him with praise just so he could walk out the door with confidence then when he engaged in the game itself that confidence would be short lived and false. ABA
lessons will go much further than a typical batting practice or bullpen session.We feel as though anyone can sit on a bucket and catch a bullpen or throw a
batting practice and that is not what your money earns at ABA.
