  2. Catcher Program: Stealing Strikes – This session is for the experienced catcher who is looking to learn the art of getting pitched balls to be called as strikes. The focus is on learning body movements that provide the illusion of borderline pitches looking like pure strikes.

Concepts like pitching mentality, holding base runners and more will be stressed from the very first session.

Why Train with Falls Aces?

You’ve always been a pretty good hitter, until this year at least. Seems that no matter what you try at the plate, you just can’t get the sweet spot to the ball consistently. Where can you go for help?

At of the time of this post, the U13 Falls Aces are hitting .391 – as a TEAM – led by 4 Aces batting .500 or better. This is largely due to the Aces fine tuning their mechanics and working on strength training during Winter training camps.

As summer begins, and baseball season winds down, your young athlete may start looking for training options so they can fine tune their skills to get a jump on the competition next year – just like the U13 team did. How can you decide if the camp, clinic, or program you see advertised daily on Facebook is the right choice for your family?

The Falls Aces provide programs, camps, and clinics year-round to Menomonee Falls Little League players. Here are three most common questions our organization gets asked…

  • Who does the coaching at your camps? 
    “All Falls Aces coaches are well trained. From ABCA Conventions, to online learning, to workshops put on by local athletic trainers, to attending clinics put on by some of the nation’s top High School, College, and MLB coaches, Fall Aces coaches have access to the best training on TODAY’s method of creating the best baseball players. These aren’t just “dads” out here, these are trained and experienced coaches.”
  • What is the player to coach ratio? 
    “Most camps have player to coach ratios between 15 to 1 or, at best 10 to 1. Our camps feature ratios at 6 to 1 or better. This allows players to get a lot of reps and individual instruction with the coaches.”
  • Is this camp appropriate for my son/daughter’s skill level?
    “While the stations are consistent for all the players in a particular age group, the way we run the drills varies according to the ability level of each player. We stress to our coaches the importance of coaching each player at his own level, so more advanced athletes get challenged just as much as those who are learning the basics of the game.”

Registering for any camp, clinic, or program is easy: just visit the Training page to see what’s currently available. Train like an Ace!
