OUR COACHING PHILOSOPHY

Mountville Indians coach Bob Sauders with player

  "I believe that no one play or player  
   can win or lose a game for us." 
                                            ~ Head Coach, Bob Sauders
 


We strive to create an intentional, supportive, respectful, 
competitive and fun (Yes, we laugh and have a lot of  
fun!) 
environment where the young men on our team can thrive 
and grow as both players and people. We always play to win -
that's our expectation - but that isn't our only objective. Players 
on our team:

 
Learn baseball skills, techniques, rules, and strategies 
Receive honest, constructive and respectful feedback that emphasizes 
improving skills, building on strengths, and
maximizing the potential of
each player as well as the team


Are encouraged to take responsibility for, learn from, take action to
improve upon, and move past setbacks and mistakes 

Learn the value of a strong work ethic and personal commitment
Develop an appreciation for the unique ways in which each player contributes, as well as the ways in which each player needs to support every other player on the team to achieve success
Gain an understanding of why personal sacrifice is sometimes necessary
for the good of the group

Learn to respect and not be critical of self, teammates, coaches, umpires,
spectators, and competitors

Experience regular and structured practices that are both instructional
and fun

Become part of a legacy through experiencing the same team traditions (i.e. hat stars, end-of-season team picnic traditions, Cooperstown Tournament), that past Mountville Indians have had
