Coaching Philosophy

The Shoreline Breakers coaching philosophy is designed to help young players form good baseball habits through sufficient instruction and repetition, while emphasizing fun, effort, attitude, self-confidence, sportsmanship and teamwork. 

Through a deliberate and detailed approach, the passionate player makes purposeful gains for an easier transition into the more competitive divisions of baseball. By closely identifying abilities and monitoring areas for improvement; we can work to create movements that are specific to the individual, and offer the most beneficial feedback for growth. 

When good practice habits produce real results, a player’s self-confidence goes up. The more confidence; the more fun, and the more fun the more that player wants to continue putting in the work. Contrary to popular belief – practice does NOT make perfect, practice makes permanent. Consequently, players need to learn proper fundamentals early on. 

“Whatever it is that we are doing with any degree of frequency, at any point in time, we are training our brain to become better at performing those actions – for better or for worse. Repetition develops habits, and with frequency, those habits become an automatic reflex.”

Successful sports performance is a result of good instruction, practice and repetition. The process of strictly repeating proper movements, trains the athletes fine motor function while developing an intuitive response to that specific movement. Repetition helps improve speed and confidence.  

Learning a new skill, or correcting a bad habit can be very hard to do. And not all practice is equally helpful; quality practice sessions focus on form, and function – then repetition. This accelerates the athletes’ ability to develop greater concentration, and over time, the player develops a keen ability to consistently perform. Coaching is about meeting players where they are, NOT where we want them to be, or think they should be. 


“It is not all about talent. It’s about dependability, consistency, being coachable, and understanding what you need to do to improve.”  -Bill Belichick
