Baseball is a game that can lend itself to life in many different ways. The Hilton Head Prep Baseball Academy will focus on all aspects of baseball, but will also go beyond in working to build the character of student-athletes instilling lessons that go beyond the ball field. The Academy will strive to provide a safe, fun, and educational atmosphere for all participants to help improve both their baseball skills and knowledge of self.
The Baseball Academy believes that potential is a moving target, and that as we pursue our potential, we better ourselves as athletes, competitors, and human beings. If we reach our potential we have failed as competitors.
