CBA Philosophy
*We think the best part about youth sports is that players learn important life lessons. We focus on accountability, hard work, attention to detail, competition, communication, leadership,  teamwork and consequences.
*Players are given responsibilities: They do the scorebook, coach 1b, count equipment, organize the dugout, chart pitchers, and warm up pitchers/catchers.
*Tryouts: CBA does not hold a traditional "tryout" each year looking for better players. We are investing in you and it is our job to develop you as the best player you can be. If you work hard and have a good attitude, we will always want you back and we will never give up on you.

What we want from you
*Your best effort.
*A good attitude, competitive spirit and a team-first approach.
*Players who love it and want to work hard to get better: Baseball is an acquired talent and it requires a lot of repetition. This is an intense program and we practice all the time.
*Commitment to player development: Players and parents who are committed and willing to put the time in. This means coming to practice and being on time to games.
*Commitment to the program: No outside coaching (non CBA coaching) unless it’s related to your HS team.
*Athletes: We encourage you to play other sports. There is plenty of time for you to come to us throughout the year. However, if you are not playing another sport we expect you to be working out with us.
