Our emphasis is on structured player development rather than wins and losses. We provide our players with full access to the latest baseball technology and the largest indoor facility in the country in order to measure and maximize their growth as athletes. We’ve found that our structured program not only leads to more success on the field, but off the field as well. We take as much pride in developing great baseball players as we do in developing great people and students.

GLC is a program that focuses on your personal development while also providing you with the skills on and off the field to succeed at the next level.
ADAM HALL, 2017

From top to bottom, everyone involved in the program takes pride in the product provided to our players and families. The development staff features countless former professional players and big leaguers as well as some of the top baseball minds in the country.

They guide you as to how to mature as a player and as a person, to get to see your goals and where you want to be with baseball, realistically but also optimistically.
