College Prep Program
College Prep Program
The goal of the College Preparatory (Prep) Program is to develop high school aged baseball players in the City of Calgary and surrounding areas and aid them in finding appropriate post-secondary baseball programs to continue both their athletic and academic careers.
The program will feature year-round skill training, strength and conditioning, gameplay, and tournament play. It will also provide assistance in post-secondary program scouting and application, volunteer opportunities, and mentorship from a team of educated and highly-qualified professional instructors.
The College Prep Program is designed for those who wish to make their baseball development a priority and pursue an opportunity to play at the post-secondary level. Athletes will be selected on an application basis, taking into account their skill level, commitment to the program, and character. Those who are selected for the College Prep program will also be granted a spot on a Wildcats Baseball Summer Team.
Players do not need to be students of Webber Academy to play for this program.
- Players will begin training in small groups in September & will continue throughout the duration of the year, players registered for our Prep Program are guaranteed a spot on one of our Wildcats Baseball Competitive Summer teams.
Strength & Conditioning
- In collaboration with ORKA Performance, each athlete will undergo a series of physical assessments and performance measurements. These will be used to craft personal workout plans that are periodized, easy to access electronically, and specific not only to their position but also address any movement and strength deficits noted by ORKA's multi-disciplinary health care professionals.
- Our coaching staff has a diverse baseball background with a wealth of playing & coaching experience at various levels. Our coaches pride themselves on their growth and development, staying up to date with the latest training techniques and technologies.
- By instilling our core values of hard work, respect, possessing a strong moral fibre, and making educated decisions, we hope to develop the character of each player so that they may take these values with them into their collegiate programs and post-playing careers. We expect both our coaching staff and our players to have an unprecedented commitment to their development to become exceptional young baseball players and positive contributors to their community.
- Players will receive assistance with the college recruiting process. This will include recruiting videos and education on how to maximize exposure both in person and through social media.
- Our philosophy on training encompasses taking advantage of the strides that baseball has made as a sport in the health and development of youth baseball players with quantitative outcome measures. Players and their families will be able to track and follow their progress throughout the year. Our training resources include:
- Rapsodo Pitching 2.0
