Welcome to the 2017 NJ Juggernauts Baseball Organization where instructing the basic fundamentals in all aspects of the game is my top priority. Helping young players learn the importance of hard work (team & self-practice), and teaching players to have a clear understanding of how to play the game the right way. I also educate the players on how to develop their mental toughness, and to maintain their commitment to the success of their TEAM.
The 2017 NJ Juggernauts will be offering a 15/16U spring & summer team which will be competing at the 16U level, and a Super 17U Showcase Summer Team. The spring season will consist of two practices per week. One hitting practice per week and one outdoor defensive per week. All practices take place in Bergen County NJ, and games may be played on Saturdays and or Sundays. Working closely with each player to help them prepare and maintain their baseball skills, and their mental toughness throughout the year.
Baseball Intelligence Quotient:
How to set up before a pitch, how to react and know what to do with the ball before it's put in play. Teaching players to learn what an opposing pitcher is trying to accomplish during a game along with communicating what the umpires strike zone is to his team mates, and much more. Helping young players understand they must have a plan, and a solid approach when they step up to the plate. Teaching pitchers correct mechanics, focusing on the next pitch, and learning to keeping hitters off balance. These are some of the foundations that a young player needs to enjoy playing the game of baseball.
Young players often learn some of the physical aspects of the game, but often do not learn or understand the mental side of the game nor do they know how to deal with the ups and downs. I will help them learn the mental side of baseball which is a large piece of the puzzle. The mental side of baseball must be addressed if players want to move through the higher levels of the game and be successful.

Speed & Agility Training:

I teach my players to respect their opponents, to maintain their composure on the field and I do not emphasize winning or losing. I feel young players need to put their emphasis on being
100% Focused before each pitch. Learn and understand what to do with the ball before & after it's pitched and for my players to give
100% Effort during all practices & games.
The players simply must focus on the learning process and not the outcome.
Teaching youth players to understand the benefits of hard work through practicing on their own which I highly recommend. Providing the proper information on how to conduct oneself during workouts, practices, games, and last but not least, proper dugout etiquette.
I have never put the game before the health and well being of one of my players. The safety of all my players comes first. I am very aware of my pitchers' warm up / cool down routine in order to support, and maintain a healthy arm.
Learning and knowing ones defensive assignments at the high school level is of the utmost importance. Instruction; properly run bases, read cut off throws, read opposing pitchers and how players need to move their feet & hands quickly and correctly in all aspects of the game, all of which is a large part of my program and my philosophy.
