We are gearing up for the summer 2017. We are very excited to have two 16U teams this summer that will feed into our 18u over the next year or so. I’m also happy to be adding John Edwards and Braddock Rowe to the coaching staff. Both have run successful high school programs in Jacksonville and have a wealth of baseball knowledge and player connections throughout the city.
Heading into our 5th season, we are gaining momentum with the Indians and are pleased to offer a higher-level alternative to the very competitive world of travel ball in Jacksonville. FCAA has been a hot bed of baseball talent, turning out very good baseball players since its birth in 1998.
Recreational baseball is VERY important to a young player’s life! It instills the natural love of the game in his heart, when playing is fun and not loaded with pressure. Middle school baseball introduces players to a more rigorous schedule of 4-5 days a week. High school baseball gets a little more serious and challenges everyone who steps out on the field. During this time, a player finds out if he has what it takes to play high school ball competitively or even has a shot at the next level.
This is where we come in. Although high school ball offers competitive baseball 2-3 months per year, it leaves a HUGE gap of about 7 months when players have to find an organization that can offer high-level baseball. THIS is where we come in.
Stay tuned, we hope to have many more success stories to go along with our 20+ players who’ve signed or gone on to play college ball.
