Team Beast

 

Since its inception in 2013, BEAST Baseball has quickly grown to be one of the premier travel baseball organizations on Long Island.  With nearly 30 teams representing the organization in 8U-18U baseball, Team BEAST offers a variety of options to its players, from those looking to play more casually for the love of the game to those looking to develop and pursue college ball opportunities or beyond.

BEAST teams play in several local leagues, competitive tournaments and college showcase events throughout the eastern region.  Our elite level teams compete on a broader regional and national scale with a focus on exposure to college coaching staffs and professional scouts.  In 2018 BEAST was represented in the highest level national events in every age group from 13U-17U including invite only tournaments such as the Perfect Game World Series.

BEAST players practice and train all year long by our highly skilled and professional staff.  From our comprehensive winter training program to on the field instruction our program is designed to develop our players in all aspects of the game.  Foundational skill development, overall physical conditioning, and a focus on building baseball IQ all result in our players receiving the necessary hands on training to prepare them for the field.

At BEAST our philosophy is to teach to and work for the individual.  We work closely with every individual player to help them to achieve their goals.  For some it’s all about improving and teaching them how to be a better player, for others it’s about developing them for a long term baseball career into college and beyond.

Overview of team programs:

8U-9U - Our focus with our youngest teams is on skill development and the fundamentals of the game.  Teams complete winter training with BEAST trainers, concentrating on proper mechanics and field positioning.  Teams play in a local spring league and practice weekly with the coaches.  By late spring/early summer, teams will typically play local tournaments to get a better sense of travel baseball.  Local league play will be a focus during the summer and fall with smaller local tournaments added in. View our 8U-9U teams.

10U-11UAs the teams get older we start to build additional components to their training plans, while still reinforcing the fundamental aspects learned at the younger levels.  Teams begin to focus on overall conditioning with our speed and agility programs.  Our players learn the importance of their overall health and fitness and how it impacts their performance on the field.  Teams at the 10U and up level will still participate in league play, but start to build out more competitive tournament schedules and travel off of Long Island to get a taste of new competition in tournaments such as the Diamond Nation World Series, Perfect Game Super 25 Qualifiers and Ripken Events.  In 2018 our premier 10U team was invited to compete in the National Youth Baseball Championship.  View our 10U-11U teams.

12U-13UOur middle school aged players benefit from more specialized training to prepare them for the transition and adjustment to the big field.  Our conditioning program for these players starts to incorporate more strength and mobility work.  Our baseball instruction works on adjusting mechanics for heavier bats and longer throws.  Teams in this age group adjust their schedules to accommodate school ball and typically play a heavier tournament schedule with more frequent travel, including Cooperstown for the 12U teams.  View our 12U-13U teams.

High School Freshman/Sophmores High school aged players require training and tools that go beyond the ball field.  At this age our athlete conditioning program becomes more intense and individualized.  Players are educated on proper nutrition, position specific physical training and the importance of proper recovery care.  We work with our players and their parents to prepare for college play with our comprehensive college prep program.  Showcases, national tournaments, and other high exposure opportunities are critical components of our older teams' schedules.  View our high school underclass teams.

High School Juniors/Seniors - Our oldest players, within a year of their high school graduation, turn their focus on preparation for a higher level of baseball play.  They work individually with their coaches and our staff to plan for the right exposure opportunities, help them communicate with college coaches, and ultimately earn their college commitments.  Teams will attend regional showcases as well as local tournaments to keep up with their play through the summer and fall.  Players are guided towards a higher level of strength and conditioning to ensure they are in top shape for individual camps and showcases, and understand the physical and mental demands of a collegiate athlete.   View our high school upperclass teams.
