Player Development PDF 

The PSCL Player Development (PD) Schedule is now out for Summer 2014! Scott Colby, M.A., C.S.C.S. and Instructor at McKendree University will be back this summer as the Director of Player Development for the PSCL, and will be coordinating all PD Activities throughout the summer. PSCL Interns will assist in the facilitation of PD Activities.

PSCL’s PD Program is FREE for any and all paid athletes in the PSCL! PD activities include the Pre-Season Baseball Combine, Pre-Season Goal Setting, Pre-Game Practices, Post-Game Self-Evaluations, Video Analysis (using the RightViewPro Application), and the Post-Season Baseball Combine. The Pre-Season and Post-Season Baseball Combines will utilize the Baseball Athletic Testing System (BATS) to assess initial player skill levels and ensuing improvements achieved during the course of the summer season. The remaining PD Tools comprise the four-pronged player development approach to both mental and physical aspects of the game. The following is a list of dates in which PD Activities have been scheduled this summer. Please refer to the PSCL Master Schedule for a detailed listing of PD Activities.
