Naperville Baseball Academy LTAD Program is an innovative approach toward baseball improvement. Based on the principles of Long-Term Athletic Development (LTAD), and TPIJPC, The Naperville Baseball Academy uses physical and mental activities that are appropriate to a child's biological age.These Activities are challenging but rewarding. Young baseball/softball players will gain strength, quickness, speed, agility, balance and confidence. Most importantly, they will have a great time doing all of it! the "FUNdamental Cyclone" and the "S.M.A.S.H. Zone" are at the programs core. Athletes will kick, hit, throw, catch, bunt, and field. There will be wrist release stations, strength building stations and stations where children will begin developing explosiveness. Built into each station are exercises and movements that enable young players to learn the fundamentals of athleticism of baseball. Naperville Baseball Academy Instructors teach young minds and young bodies how to be the best they can be, and we do it in an incredibly fun and engaging atmosphere.
Players participate in a 90 minute session each week. The 90 minutes include a warm-up and cool down, team-building activities and up to 12 stations in the "FUNdamental Cyclone"or the "S.M.A.S.H. Zone" each Week's 90-minute session takes the athletes through exercises and activities that develop and nurture their fundamental movement skills as well as their fundamental sports skills. During each cycle, the athletes learn and eventually master a different theme, including - fielding, throwing, hitting and pitching fundamentals. There are four sessions in a cycle. Just like the Cyclone and S.M.A.S.H. zones, our baseball instruction is skill appropriate. Some athletes will use bats and gloves. Some athletes will use tennis rackets, footballs, and field hockey sticks. And some will use a combination of both. But all of them will use the skill learned and practiced during the other sessions.
