STRIKE ZONE TRAINING CENTER
It is hard to imagine that the 2014 season is coming to an end. And while it was great to see the teams competing this Spring/Summer, I must say I really missed seeing the kids here in the Winter working hard to improve. There is no better time (at least for me!) than watching young players work hard on pursuing their dreams.
Thinking about the 450+ games and 75+ tournaments, I want to make sure I take a moment to let all of our parents know how very much we appreciate them. Knowing there are lots of things you can spend your hard earned money and you time on, it is an honor to think you spent it with us. We were proud to be part of each child's development this year. Seeing just how much they improve from October through the end is what keeps us going. We all want to win all of our games, but unfortunately, it doesn't happen that way. But to us, there are no losers - only learners. We want our players to learn that each and every time they compete they can win - either getting the "W" or walking away with something learned that can help them continue to improve. Win or Learn!
Another special thanks to all of the coaches who spend countless hours working with kids. We were so lucky to meet lots of new Little League coaches and independent travel coaches this Winter. It is good to see them in here working hard over the Winter as we all know that's when good players are made. It was also exciting to see many more teams start to utilize our indoor facility and including it in their travel team offering. Doesn't matter what is on the front of the shirts - we are all one big family with a common bond of working hard and trying to make a difference in young players lives.
The spring and summer weather was pretty good to us and most of our (non) high school teams got in close to 50 games. 10 Championships 8 runner ups. But more importantly, some incredible moments which make for life time memories. Couldn't be more proud of our coaches, players and parents. I love you all and can't wait to see you soon!
The Indiana Spiders and Indiana Lady Spiders, Strike Zone's very own, developmental travel baseball and softball organization, had a successful season with quite a few tournament championship wins, a number of second place finishes and a number of top finishes. More importantly, a lot of incredible stories of how the kids Dared to be Champions!
