THE PRIME WAY, a note from Ownership

Parents, Guardians, Players, we are humbled by your interest in the PRIME FAMILY! Outlined below are a few rules and expectations we have for our Prime families and our “Prime Boys”. We ask a lot. We have high expectations. In return, you can have high expectations for your experience with Prime. We hold our players and families to a higher standard than most. You can expect that we will hold our coaches, instructors, and ourselves to that same high standard. In order to create baseball players and young men that are unlike their peers we must create an environment, habits, and a CULTURE that are unlike the others. Prime is different.

Embrace doing it differently, doing it the right way, developing daily, loving your Prime Family, and having BLAST doing it!
-Shane and Joe

Practice

● Players will be ON TIME wearing their practice apparel. GRAY PRIME Practice Shirt, baseball Pants, Prime hat, and belt for FIELD practices. GRAY PRIME Practice shirt, Practice Shorts / Pants, and hat for PTC Practices. Always have both TURFS and CLEATS available for practice. Crocs, Slides, Sandals etc WILL NOT be worn to practice.
● Practice schedules and locations will be outlined on the website under your teams tab. The expectation is that players will be in attendance for every practice.
● Schedule Conflicts: If your family KNOWS of a practice conflict please communicate this with your teams Coach and Coach Shane / Joe BEFORE accepting your roster spot.
● Missed Practices: Players and / or families must notify the team via the SportsYou App by 12pm the previous day (if SICK by 10AM the day of) when a practice is going to be missed. Coaches will be preparing practice plans and need to have this information in order to do so effectively. THIS MUST BE DONE VIA SPORTSYOU!
● No cell phones, apple watches, or tablets at practice. Those items need to be stored in the players bags.
● Practices are OPEN for parents to attend unless your coach informs the group otherwise. However, please keep communication with your son during practice to a minimum.. Please be sure he has all the equipment, hydration, etc, he may need for the duration of practice. Coaches may request a parent to help with a practice exercise, this is the only time it is acceptable for a parent to be on the playing field (barring injury of course).

Prime Baseball Culture
1. WORK HARD in practice, and off the field towards goals
2. PLAY HARD in games, without exception, we play one way HARD
3. PLAY THE PART, look like a baseball player, act like a baseball player, eventually, become a baseball player
4. BE NICE…well…just be nice

  • We truly believe in the FAMILY atmosphere. Players will treat teammates and coaches like family, with respect. It is our hope that parents will do the same.
  • Don’t help build the excuse. Sometimes we fail, it’s okay to just need to work hard and get better. It’s never the umpire, coach, teammate, or other teams “fault” we failed.
  • Parents should feel welcome to share players’ performance in the classroom with coaches and instructors. It is of PARAMOUNT importance that Prime players are students first. Steps can be taken to ensure this by working together.
  • Coaches will set further clear standards for expected behavior, help identify when players are not meeting those standards, and give opportunities to make adjustments. After these steps are taken, if issues continue, players will face consequences that could include sitting out of practice or losing playing time.
