The BC Baseball Academy believes that private lessons are essential to development. Whether the lessons are for hitting, pitching, or defense, these lessons lead to much quicker development. Simply, baseball players and teams are made, not only in the cages and practice mounds between games, but also in the off-season. Tremendous improvements can be made at these times in many areas. The BC Baseball Academy does not want to “start over” during each preseason. The goal is to have the players start each preseason much improved over the end of the previous fall season. The BC Baseball Academy also believes that all StarPath players have a big advantage over other teams and their members. The advantage is that our players get lessons from the same coaching staff that sees them play in their games. The same staff member that teaches their lessons gets to see them in live action and sees how they react to game speed and game pressures. Many times this is not the case and we feel that this is a huge advantage for our players and this will lead to much more individualized instruction both in games and during lessons. Members of all StarPath teams will be required to attend a minimum of 12 off-season private lessons in addition to the team workouts. While the cost of the team workouts are built into the team fees, private lesson fees will be an additional cost to each player. However, members of the StarPath teams will receive a discount on all lessons.
