Creating skilled athletes, creating confident youth.
Impact Baseball is dedicated to building skills and creating confidence with our youth in Baltimore. Since 2009, we have impacted over 1,700 athletes through our various camps, clinics, leagues, and lessons. Our experienced team of coaches and mentors works hard to carry out the Impact mission - and to help every single one of our athletes achieve their goals.
What Approach Helps Athletes Most?
With the right approach, sports programs can help your child stay active and healthy, develop the self confidence and work ethic of a top athlete, and hone the social skills they need to thrive in today’s world. That being said, the wrong approach to sports training causes children to miss out on these wonderful benefits, and also has the potential to cripple their self-esteem, burn them out, and disengage them altogether.
What Sets us Apart?
We treat major skills - such as hitting or throwing - as a set of smaller fundamentals. When these more minor skills are learned and performed together effectively, they enable an athlete to excel at more complex movements. For example, a hitter who knows how to swing using their arms but not their legs cannot swing a bat to their full potential; both parts of the skill are necessary for success.
We strongly believe that athletes first must internalize the concept of a skill in order to master it. Once athletes understand why they need a skill, what the final skill looks like, and how its components fit together, they can then master it through repetitions and drill work.
Developing skills is not something you do on a weekend. It’s an ongoing process that requires dedication and the mental toughness to keep going despite setbacks.
It’s about committing to a long-term goal and sticking with it through ups and downs. It’s about respecting and being kind to your teammates even when they make mistakes. It’s about the willingness to keep learning even when you feel like you are already on top of your game. And it’s about the confidence that you can overcome any obstacle in your way.
All of this is true in baseball, and it’s true in every other area of life.
Who are our coaches?
Each of our college educated coaches contributes an exceptional set of experiences and skills to the Impact team and helps to develop and enact our unique philosophy.
How do we set our Philosophy in motion?
We strongly believe that encouragement and positivity are far more effective than yelling and demanding. Watch this clip for a glimpse inside the Impact method of training:
In order to learn, kids must be actively engaged and surrounded by positivity. You can’t just demand their attention; that’s simply not how their minds work. You need to earn their attention and make the experience fun so that they will walk away having learned real skills.
Who are Our Partners?
We partner with many local leagues and organizations to provide the best programming possible to our athletes.
