Emerging Pathway Program

Emerging Pathway Program

Our youngest winter development program will consist of two sessions per week with some of Baseball NSW’s best coaches who excel at early game learning and the fundamentals of the game. This program will be led and directed by Baseball NSW State Development Officer, Coen Wynne and will run out of three regionalized venues in the North, West, and South.

These young athletes will undergo an 8-week program which will walk them through the fundamentals in all areas of the game, seeing participants learn all fielding positions as well as honing in on their offensive aspects through hitting drills and cues.

After going through the fundamentals of all positions they will start the position cycle again and learn more in-depth skills and drills to progress and develop their skills to prepare them for the next steps in their baseball journey.

After the EPP the athletes will be invited to a testing day where they will be able to show their skills and put-up data that we will use to compare to their times used to trial for this program. This testing day will include a 60 yd dash, Run & Gun, and Bat Exit Speed test.

Baseball NSW are excited to announce that we will be integrating some cutting-edge baseball technology that will accompany the EPP and allow players and parents alike to collect and analyse data on the player’s swings. Partnering with Blast Motion, Baseball NSW now gives the athletes in our programs top-of-the-line statistics which will assist in their development and shape the future of Baseball NSW’s coaching delivery.

There is the option for participants to include a Blast Motion package where the athletes can receive a Blast sensor and a one-year license which will allow the athletes and their parents to review the data and analysis of their swings.

By doing this Baseball NSW can assist the athletes in developing certain areas of their swing through individualized practice plans to work on away from the program while they work on well-rounded swings and drills throughout the program.
