Outlaw Baseball was created to provide kids an opportunity to learn and play the game of baseball in a fun and supportive environment. The primary focus of the program is to have fun, play the game with great effort and support our teammate.
Our coaching philosophy centers around a growth mindset, which is rooted in the belief that everyone can be successful if they are willing to put in a high level of effort and approach learning with the right attitude. Success is not a result of natural gifts or talents, but is related to the work you are willing to put in. To support this, our program believes success is achieved through grit, which can be seen through someone's determination, commitment, striving for improvement and understanding the direction we are going.
When focusing on Grit, the most important element to achievement is Effort:
• Talent x Effort = Skill
• Skill x Effort = Achievement
The key here, is that effort counts twice, making it more important than natural talent alone. The effort that one is willing to put in, combined with passion and a perseverance to follow through, will lead to success.
We are currently looking for 5-6 kids who will be 11 or under as of May 2020. Our goal is to practice 1-2 days a week over the off season in an indoor facility. We will move to outdoor practices when the weather improves in the Spring. Our plan is to participate in a league during the spring and play in 4-5 tournaments. Most the tournaments will be local, but we will look to play in 1 or 2 tournaments outside of the Seattle/Tacoma area that would require hotel stays.
The most important traits for kids joining this team will be a positive attitude and a willingness to put in their best effort. Our focus is on is on development and helping kids meet their potential. We support multi-sport athletes and will do our best to work around kids playing other sports during off season workouts.
We are creating more than just teams. we are creating and coaching teamwork, friendship, motivation, discipline and a second home (the field) for these boys. We operate under the Non Profit "Teaming for Futures." We are an IRS registered 501 (c) (3) charity and intend to continue building our non profit. Our priority is to keep this level of baseball affordable by subsidizing our fees with donations and sponsors.
