Did you witness something great this week? Maybe a fellow athlete helping someone with a drill, or someone cleaning up the cages after the class by themselves or even just a great effort by an individual you look up to?
As part of a new initiative at the BBC we are encouraging athletes, parents, staff to acknowledge good deeds when noticed. We believe at the BBC that through positive interaction, appreciation and encouragement we are building an environment that will create confidence within our athletes. Confidence is essential to becoming a better baseball/softball player, a better teammate, a better person. If you see something that you feel should be recognized, write it down on one of the slips and drop it in the box at the desk. We will be sharing our acclamations with you over social media and email.
Thank you for your continued support in our program
