Christmas Holiday Baseball Games Academies

Okkodo High School

Guam Baseball Academy set to train baseball skills

The Guam Baseball Academy is gearing up for its 2nd annual Christmas Holiday Baseball Academies, with experienced coaches taking aspiring young players through a series of on-field skill routines and drills designed to both improve young players’ fundamentals and hone specific game skills. There will be three separate academies scheduled during the school holiday Christmas break.  “The four day-long academies will give youngsters from 8 to 18 years of age a chance to work on variety of game-like challenges, says Bill Bennett lead instructor.  “The Academies go beyond fundamentals, and expose the player to “game play” situations that they will encountered on game days.”

In baseball, there are game situation plays that occur during the course of the game that the players never get a chance to learn in practice or get the education of the deeper parts moving the baseball from base to base. In this academy, player will be exposed to these regular game type situations.

The third skills and game academy in January will be for the Tee-Ball players ages 5-7. This academy will be a three day, 3.5 hour session each day. The curriculum for the tee-ball academy deals with motor skills, balance, coordination and introducing baseball type movements needed to play the game while having fun. Hitting, throw & catch, fielding, base running will be part of the teaching curriculum.
