ATL baseball is a program committed to providing an environment of baseball excellence. The program focuses on the development in all aspects of the game. Our goals are to create players who love, appreciate and are committed to the game of baseball:

Developing a program where our youth can learn life lessons and athletic skills through sports by emphasizing character building, sportsmanship, teamwork, and creating a healthy competitive environment.

Giving each player and family the best experience possible by offering elite coaching, developmental tools and helping each player reach their true potential.

Creating teams that compete at the highest level, but never sacrifice the development of the players.

Helping kids prepare athletically, academically and socially for high school and college baseball.

Giving kids an opportunity to compete in multiple sports through their middle/high school years. The cross-training benefits has scientifically been proven to provide young athletes several benefits :

  1. Athletes involved in multiple sports tend to have longer sports careers and tend to continue to participate in athletics longer. 
  2. Multiple sports athletes provide for more positive youth development.
  3. Multiple sport athletes have a more enjoyable participation in sports and less burnout.
  4. Multiple sport athletes have better motor and cognitive skills that will enhance their main sport later in their life.

Expectations for playing with the ATL Lightning:

ATL believes learning to practice, playing the game the right way, working as a team, competing with other high caliber players, training properly, and to deal with failures on the field are more important objectives than winning at all costs. Our goal is to develop the complete baseball player on and off the field.

ATL encourages players to play multiple sports. Our fall program is setup in a manner that allows players to participate in other sports and still compete for ATL.

ATL believes that the entire roster should play and players should cross-train at multiple positions, especially for 13U-15U teams.

Players cannot play for another travel team while being a member of the ATL Lightning.

ATL Baseball is committed to selecting players for the entire year and we expect our players to do the same.  With the exception of injury or other extenuating circumstances, we do not replace our players midseason with other players.

As an organization, we expect the coaches to do the coaching and the parents to parent in supportive and positive ways. We expect our coaches, players and parents to conduct themselves positively and represent the ATL family with class

ATL believes that training and practice time are key to the development of each player. It is as or more important as games.
