* 14U 2021 Cannons tryouts are still on going.
Please contact Rob Stockman if interested in setting up a tryout. firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
November - December
The Cannons program will begin in November with speed and strength sessions taught by David Brandt. These sessions meet 3 times per week during November and December. 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.
In Season Schedule
The 14U program in the Cannons organization has a focus on team development and individual progress. Routine, preparation, strength training are major factors in development as ballplayers at this age. This team will have 45 games scheduled and should expect to play 35-40 games including tournaments. This age group will play at the EBL D1 level. The 14U team will practice 1x per week around the game schedule. The objective of this age group is to get as strong physically as possible and understand what you are starting to become as a player. Learning how to prepare to be successful and figuring out each players personal routine is crucial at this level. This team will only play a light schedule in April and May during school baseball.
