Baseball Program Philosophy

The goal of the Kinkaid baseball program is to provide opportunities allowing each student athlete to grow mentally, physically, and socially.  Success will be achieved when players learn to continually improve upon the aspects of the game they can control.  Players must develop as individuals and then apply what is learned to a team concept. The Kinkaid coaching staff is dedicated and determined to maximize every athlete’s performance.  Clear communication between players and coaches is necessary and will be reinforced daily.  ‚Ä®Program philosophy includes approaching every game with class, discipline, pride and toughness.  Through preparation and dedication, Kinkaid baseball teams will compete at every given opportunity and will let their performance speak for itself.  Kinkaid baseball players should strive to command respect through a tireless work ethic on the field and enjoy the experience of competition, regardless of the outcome.

 

Baseball Teams

Summer Baseball

Each summer, the baseball program plans to field 3 league teams: varsity, JV and an incoming freshman team. In addtion to league games, summer baseball participants will have the opportunity to play in 4 separate weekend tournaments.  All players are welcome to sign up for both the league and tournaments.  Depending on how many players sign up, some players may participate on different level league teams, but play on the same tournament team.  Head coach Steve Maas will coach the varsity league/tournament team, and the Kinkaid staff will coach the sub varsity teams.  The coaching staff will make decisions based on what is the best placement for the player.  Summer games begin at the end of May and continue through the middle of July.  League games will usually be Monday-Thursday, and the tournaments will take place on the weekends.  All league teams will play one or two double-headers during the week.
