SMYO is completely committed to providing the boys and girls with tools they can use both, on and off the baseball field; Commitment, Teamwork, Hard Work and Respect. 

Commitment is the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause or activity. The kids learn about commitment and dedication during team practices and games. They also develop a sense of belonging to a team during this valuable time spent with their teammates.

Teamwork is a concept that many individuals have difficulty grasping. The earlier a child starts to learn about teamwork, the easier the concept is to accept and master. Learning to rely on your teammates and being someone they can rely on can only be achieved if you attend team sessions and team events. Teamwork is a term your child will hear used throughout their lives. Understanding it and learning to apply it, both, on and off the fields of play will give your child more self-confidence now and in the future.

Hard Work is essential in growing a self-confident and self-assured child or teenager. When someone has worked hard at growing their skills, endurance and understanding of a sport or activity, they will learn what is needed to excel on the field. Also, once they learn what “hard work” means, they will learn to apply it to other aspects of their lives off the field. Hard Work also shows them what it takes to master anything in their lives as they go out into the world.

  Respect is the most important thing your child will learn from their time at SMYO. Building a mutual respect between your child and his/her coach is the best gift we can offer them. When a child learns to respect themselves, they learn to respect their teammates and you, their parents. They learn the importance of self-worth. They learn not to let anyone break them down with words or abusive behaviors. They will learn to be better people.SMYO will focus on the basics for your child; throwing, catching, fielding, hitting, and the overall strategies of the game. We will also work with each child in the fundamentals of the various positions on the field. We also want to provide the kids with a life-learning environment that promotes teamwork, sportsmanship and fun. We will be relying heavily on your support throughout the entire season. We will need you to bring your child to practices and games on time. No less than 30 minutes prior to games. Your child will be successful in learning commitment, teamwork, hard work and respect if they are led by example. Therefore, we will work hard to lead your child by setting an example they can follow.

All of the teams at SMYO are coached by volunteers who happen to be parents.  As a matter of fact, all of the workers, coaches and Board Members are volunteers.  So please treat them with respect.  They are dedicating a part of their lives and time to coach and care for your child(ren).
