"Don't you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified." 1 Corinthians 9: 24-27

The Finish Strong 11U Baseball was created to provide an opportunity for boys who have a desire, motivation and dedication to improve their baseball skills in a positive team focused environment. Finish Strong 11U Baseball will ask players to work toward excellence, not perfection and players will be given the resources to achieve excellence. Baseball is a fun and challenging game that requires players to develop the ability to overcome mistakes and to look forward to their next opportunity. Ultimately, the development of skills and team focused play will be the guideline for our program, which we believe will create better baseball players and better people. We expect our players and coaches to work hard to win games, but winning will never become more important than teamwork and good sportsmanship.We support the doctrine of "athletes first, winning second." We believe that success is the fruit of camaraderie, hard work, discipline, structure, enjoyment and a willingness to maintain a character initiative on and off of the field of play. We will teach the integrity of the game of baseball, to develop the character of its players, coaches, and all others associated with our program, and to improve the skills necessary to become a better baseball player and reach the next level. With every decision we make, we make it for the kids. The goal of The Finish Strong 11U Baseball is to spread the Word of Christ through our sport and to develop players so they can continue playing at the next level (middle and/or high school).
