DFW Express Philosophy
1) More Than Just Baseball!! This Club will be ever evolving as we mature into a Top Select Organization in the North Texas Area.
2) There will be individual instruction as well as group instruction by qualified instructors and coaches that have college or professional experience. Teaching methods will include, team practice, positional practice and positional practice encompassing various age groups. Example (7U, 8U and 9U shortstops and second basemen working together in a small group setting learning their respective positions) this builds competition between the age groups and the older players help in teaching to the younger players the fundamentals of the position. Not only does the 7u player get to practice the position, but he gets to watch the 9U player practice as well.
3) The organizational focus will be on the development of basic fundamental skills to play the game of Baseball correctly. Base-running, Fielding, bunting, sacrificing, pitching and the elements of hitting will be the core values to our program.
4) The mentality of our clubs will be to (Fear No One, Respect Everyone), values of hard work, sportsmanship, discipline and mental focus must be instilled by all organizational coaches.
5) Players in the Organization should learn a minimum of 2 positions and all should learn the fundamentals of Pitching.
6) The colors of the organization will reflect a loyalty toward the great state of Texas and The United States of America.
7) A sense of Charitable Achievement should be instilled in all Teams throughout the Organization. Volunteering for those less fortunate should be a basic life skill that as an Organization we teach. This maybe an Organizational Charitable effort or Individual Team Effort agreed upon by the families of the individual team and Coach.
Yogi Berra said, "What's wrong with Major League Baseball is Little League." Well, children's athletics are sometimes more about parents grooming their kids for the Hall of Fame than about having fun. But do you know how many kids actually become professional athletes? About 1/1000th of 1%. But that doesn't mean sports aren't very important – they teach character, performance under pressure, humility in winning and graciousness in losing. Use sports to teach those lessons – that's true victory
