Covid-19 Update

Families,

First of all, thank you for your continued patience and understanding in this matter. While we are in the dark in many areas regarding the virus and the "right" moves to make, we take the health and safety of our players very seriously, and value that first and foremost. That said, we would rather overreact and be wrong, than underreact and put players in harms way.

For these reasons, we have come to the following decision regarding ALL BAMFAM practices, games, and tournaments between 3/15 and 4/6:

  • Coaches have been empowered to use their best discretion in regards to planning and conducting practices and tournaments
  • ALL practices, games, and team workouts will be viewed as OPTIONAL
  • Playing time and team standing WILL NOT be affected by families and players choosing not to attend team activities during this time period
  • If possible, coaches should remain outdoors for team workouts to avoid large crowds in an indoor setting
  • Coaches will cancel any and all activities scheduled for the team where 5 or fewer players will be in attendance

If your family is making a calculated decision to stay home and plan to stay away from the team for the dates mentioned previously, please communicate that to your coaching staff directly so they can plan accordingly. Whatever decision you make regarding baseball/softball will be respected and understood.

All games, tournaments, and practices scheduled to take place AFTER 4/6 will be addressed at a later date. Our hope is that the situation has calmed by then and we can resume regularly scheduled activities, however, we are prepared to extend the date of the previously stated actions or take further action to restrict baseball/softball activity if necessary.

For your convenience, we have included information below regarding a few of our partners so that you can be aware of their plan as well:

  • Inner Circle Baseball plans to remain open and continue all programming previously scheduled.
  • Extra Innings Indy South plans to remain open with regularly scheduled business hours, including all lessons, rentals, etc.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. If your family needs anything at all, please do not hesitate to reach out as we want to value and care for every family in the program during this stressful time.

Hard work pays off,

Coaches Jake and Adam

Who We Are

Baseball Academics Midwest is Indiana’s only travel program focused on developing the SIX tool player.  While the five physical skills indicate upside, the sixth tool, mental aptitude for the game, gives a better indication of ceiling and coachability.

 Our program is designed to accelerate growth both physically and mentally through the use of a Mental Training Curriculum, Offensive Approach Training, Pitching Approach Training, Baserunning Approach Training, Arm Care Implementation, Hitting Metric/Diamond Kinetics Implementation, Visual Occlusion Training via Axon Sports, and Hand-Eye Training. 

Our players are expected to master the mental side of the game in order to perform better physically, and drills/practices are designed to help players convert mental understanding into physical skill.
