Concord Cannons Program Information (2019 - 2020)

Concord Cannons Baseball was established in 2006 and enters its 14th season in 2020. Over that time the Cannons program has been offering year-round advanced baseball training and one of the most competitive travel programs regionally. The Cannons program believes strongly in playing competition equal or better to help our players prepare for future advancement in the game. The Cannons program offers one team at each age division of the Elite Baseball League. Members of the Concord Cannons receive year-long memberships to Concord Sports Center. 

Concord Sports Center is a 23,000 sq. ft. multi-purpose indoor sports facility in Concord, NH. Concord Sports Center offers two indoor turf field areas, 5 batting cages and gym area which is available year-round to all Cannons players. 

All Cannons teams are coached by former college/ professional players or high school Varsity coaches. The Cannons program has very little turnover with coaching from year to year. In 2019 all Cannons Head Coaches had at least 7 years’ experience in the program. (Bryan Caruso, 15 Years, Eric Duquette 14 Years, Dale Emerson 9 Years, Matt Tupman 8 Years, Rob Stockman 8 Years.) 

Concord Cannons baseball fully supports local town leagues and school baseball programs. We encourage our players to play as much baseball as possible. Cannons baseball is offering more baseball against quality competition and year-long training which we believe helps players advance in the game. We also believe in playing other sports and focusing on the sport that is in season. Workouts are offered year-round in the program but if you can’t make something it shouldn’t be a burden to fit everything in. We want well rounded athletes in the program and specialization of sports is strongly discouraged.  

Every player’s journey in the game has many important aspects in making them successful as athletes such as family, local leagues, school and finding the right training. The Cannons program looks to help guide players through these different aspects in becoming successful on and off the field. One way we try to do this is by the experiences with thousands of athletes that have gone through the program and the experiences of our coaching staff. Our coaching staff has played or coached at all levels of organized baseball from tee ball to the Major Leagues.  The Cannons program has 3 players drafted in the Major League Draft and over 100 playing collegiately.  

We encourage all families interested in travel baseball to do their research before selecting a travel program. There are several options out there and it is often difficult to tell the difference between programs. The Cannons program has an overall program direction with dedicated non parent coaches that have a proven track record in travel baseball. 

Year-Long Training Program and Indoor Baseball Facility

* Cannons Philosophy on recruiting. We appreciate when parents or players spread the word about the Cannons Organization it truly is a help to our program. However, we will not approach families or recruit players from other organizations unless they reach out to us first. We want players that buy into what the Cannons program is about.  We will not mislead our families or make promises we can't fulfill. We've never approached a player from another organization, everyone has their personal reasons why they play where they play, and we respect that. 

Selection Process

Following tryouts rosters will be posted on each team page on the Cannons website and families will be contacted about the rosters. 

If selected on a Cannons team, we ask families to discuss the commitment of the program and decide if it's the right fit for them as a family. We will not put a deadline on this decision if it’s made in a reasonable amount of time. If programs are putting deadlines on accepting roster spots  they aren’t looking out for the best interest of families. 

Off-Season

Following tryouts all players selected on a roster can start using Concord Sports Center for training. Concord Cannons players also receive discounted Private Instruction with all Concord Sports Center employed coaches. The Cannons organization has no problem with players working with other instructors at other facilities. If you have someone already that works for you, we encourage you to work with that coach.

Fall Baseball

Fall baseball is an optional program at Concord Sports Center offered at a discount to Cannons players. This is the only program not included in the Cannons playing fees. This league is run by Concord Sports Center and has 50-60 teams participating each year. With multi-sport athletes we've found it's very difficult to have the team together in this league, but we'll try and keep as many Cannons teammates together as possible. All players must register separately for this program.

November - December

The Cannons program will begin in November with speed classes taught by David Brandt. David is the Director of Speed Training for the Concord Sports Center and Cannons Baseball program. This program is designed to teach our players how to improve overall athleticism and how to practice being more athletic. One of the philosophies of the Cannons program is we want to play fast and athletic as a team and this program is a great introduction on training the body to move properly. David is at Concord Sports Center every day during the off-season and is available to help adjust programs and answer any speed questions families may have throughout the off-season. The program objective during November and December is getting our bodies prepared for the long baseball season.

January - April 

Team practice run by each teams coaching staff will begin in January and run twice per week until the start of the season. These workouts are a mixture of indoor field times and batting cage times at Concord Sports Center. The objective of these workouts is to prepare the team for the game schedule. Individual work is crucial starting in January for players to get in a routine for bullpens, hitting outside of the workouts and overall strength work. Being a good baseball player takes organization and discipline we suggest each player work with the team’s head coach on developing a plan for training outside of the team workouts.
