OUR PHILOSOPHY

 
SAFETY FIRST
The safety of our Athletes is our top priority.  We offer Wooden Bats, Graduated Baseballs, and other Safety Equipment to make sure all athletes are safe at all times.
BUILD CONFIDENCE​
While we hold very high baseball technique standards, we do not negatively critique our athletes in any form or fashion.  In a game where succeeding 33% of the time is a success, we believe confidence is the key to a Baseball Player's future.
AFFORDABLE SESSIONS
We want everyone to have an opportunity to train with us, which is why we offer rates much lower than most Baseball Instructors.
SKY IS THE LIMIT​
If our athletes' goal is to make varsity or get drafted in the 1st Round, we value and respect that goal.  We believe that if an athlete follows our instruction and works hard, the sky is the limit.
OUR FAITH
The "CROSS" in EKC CROSS is no secret.  We are a team of Believers that have built EKC CROSS on a foundation of Christian Faith and Values. 
OUR MISSION
Our mission is to develop young athletes by delivering the necessary tools to realize their full potential. We will accomplish this by modeling integrity and passion for the game we love. We will practice patience while maintaining a fun yet disciplined environment. We will use our strong moral code as compass in meeting each player at his or her specific talent level. Lastly, we will strive to develop trust with players and parents to safely push every player, regardless of skill set, beyond their perceived limits.
