SBC is an association devoted to developing baseball skills during the off-season through supervised instruction and practice in the cage and on Moller Field. Our model depends upon volunteer coaches and parents so we can dedicate all dues and punch card revenue toward facilities maintenance and equipment needs. Long term, we would like to fundraise and work with our community to construct an indoor field house, and possibly organize international baseball travel opportunities for our Sitka youth members. We will be asking Sitka Little League to separately account for all SBC dues and fees for these purposes.
SBC will emphasize line drive hitting fundamentals, by teaching proper rhythm, timing, balance, swing plane, and the mental approach required to square up pitches in all zones. Instruction will not be limited to hitting and will try to incorporate defensive drills, catcher and pitching instruction and drills (weather permitting) out on Moller Field.
SBC is being reorganized to function under the umbrella of Sitka Little League (SLL) to perform off-season skills development for kids who participated in the Sitka Little League season. All notification and claim rules established by the Sitka Little League and Little League International insurance policy will apply to injuries that occur during SBC activities. SLL insurance is active through the end of the year in which the athlete enrolled in SLL and is not renewed until the spring season commences post registration.
