Next Level Baseball & Softball 2017 – 2018
As Next Level Performance looks to the future of our baseball and softball programs, we have decided for the 2018 season that we will be hosting just one 10u baseball team and one 11u softball team. These are returning teams with filled out rosters and returning coaching staffs. We are currently in the process of hiring a director to lead our baseball/softball programs and look forward to making an announcement by the end of the month. Our vision is to promote love and respect of the game through partnerships with area youth baseball and softball programs and little leagues.
Our vision is to promote love and respect of the game through partnerships with area youth baseball and softball programs and little leagues.
As we have learned over the last couple years, there are a number of great teams in the area for kids to participate in. We believe Next Level Performance can best serve the game and the athletes that participate
through a greater focus on fundamentals and skill development. Additionally, we have brought on Mike Webster (see below for a quick bio) to our baseball/softball staff and will continue to provide lessons and work with athletes on developing skills both on and off the field. We thank you for your interest in Next Level Performance and look forward to helping you and your child in whatever way we are able.
