Our Tradition is player development!!!

Who We Are:
We are an elite youth travel baseball program. The key word in the previous sentence is "Program". We are a "program" from top to bottom. We have sets of goals for the organization as a whole, each team and each player. What we are not, is a single team put together by a couple of fathers and going out and playing AAU type tournaments. Our winter training is second to none. Each player will not only have over 31 hours of indoor winter team training, but will also have 6 hours of individual one on one lessons with C-Side's training staff. Our winter training starts in December and runs through the end of March.

Our indoor training is held at Chris Sidick’s C-Side Sports Training Facility located in North Strabane Township. C-Side is a 27,000 sq ft Baseball Taining Facility located near Canonsburg, PA. This facility is the most state of the art facility in the area.

What We Teach:
The practice program is designed to start with basic mechanics and through repetitive drills, build on the foundation each week. Practices are designed to be energetic and fast paced.  We work from the ground up with all of our teams no matter what age group. . We will start with the most basic of skills to ensure that the players are executing them correctly. This includes simple throwing mechanics, the mechanics of the baseball swing, defensive play, pitching and others.

As stated above, the main goal of our program is for each player to develop advanced baseball skills. We hope that each participant grows as a baseball player and as a person.

Lastly we hope that the boys develop friendships and have experiences that they will remember for the rest of their lives.

Where we go:
We base each teams tournament schedule on what we think will both be challenging and rewarding depending on the talent level of the team. We will not load the schedule up with easy tournaments just to win trophies. There are many good tournaments local to the Pittsburgh area and in Western, Ohio. We also go places such as Cal Ripkens facility in Aberdeen, Marlayland, Sports at the Beach in Rehoboth, Delaware, and our 12U Teams go to Cooperstown Dreams Parks. Most of the other tournaments the we attend are typically no more than a 4 hour drive from Pittsburgh.

Our Success:
As said above, our tradition is player development. Some of our competitors will tell you that this is our tradition because we don't win that much. Well that could not be further from the truth. In 2014 our teams won a total of 17 Tournament Championships and 13 runner ups and several semifinalists. Our three 12U teams went a combined 17 and 7 at Cooperstown Dreams Park. One team making the sweet 16 and another making the final 32 out of 104 teams. We are very proud of these accomplishments, but we are more proud of how much our players improved their skills from top to bottom. The tournament accomplishments are just icing on the cake!
