About the MAVS
The Maverick Baseball Showcase Teams were founded with the purpose of giving athletes the opportunity to develop both their physical skills and baseball acumen through professional instruction and competitive play. The program is geared toward athletes who desire to play at varsity and college levels. Players continuously receive age appropriate instruction from professional baseball coaches in a baseball environment.
Spring and Summer MAV team practices practices begin in December and end in March. The teams aged 13 above re-gather after the high school season in June and play through August, while 12 and under teams start in the spring. The winter workouts solidify team chemistry and prepare players for the season to be. The idea is to prepare each player and team to be successful. Winter is also a time for skill evaluation, coach player / relationship formation and team chemistry building. It is also an opportunity for players coaches and parents to understand the program as well as team and personal goals. The volume of repetition both in lesson and drill will have players ready for high school and spring leagues as the case May be. Winter is a Home Team advantage for the Mavs.
