Trying to decide which baseball program is best for you (Fall Developmental or Spring Competitive)?
The Ocee Park Fall season is considered instructional in addition to recreational. Everyone from the seasoned veteran to the absolute beginner fits in the fall program. During fall, an emphasis is placed on instruction and player development. Scores are not kept as competition is valued less than development. Equal playing time, building confidence and learning the game are the fundamental elements of the fall program. The Spring competitive season is structured toward the experienced player who wants traditional competition, advanced development and aspires to reach higher levels of game play. As most players in spring have several seasons of experience, the beginning player may struggle in the older age groups. Safety is also a concern in spring as the skills of many players is high enough to generate unsafe situations for the beginner. Please contact us to find out which program is right for your child and make sure you offer your beginner supplemental training if you place them in the spring competitive league (ask us how by contacting an OPAA board member today).
