Under 16 leagues will now be replaced by an 18U league. Usually players at VOB players of this age are being introduced to senior baseball where they play against older players and they tend to develop at a better pace. Only time will tell how the new age group will affect the development of our next level senior players.
This is a key learning area because the next step is senior baseball and we need to make sure that our players are adequately prepared. At this age VOB usually encourages the players to train with seniors so that the step up to senior baseball is not so great.
By this stage we expect our players to have solid fundamentals because the game becomes very competitive now.
This group is now being pushed a bit more as the weeks go and the intensity will probably continue to increase as they learn more and more advanced skills.
