LONG ISLAND HUSTLE BASEBALL TEAMTEAM VISION
Long Island Hustle is looking to change the dynamic of a Game focus mentality that is currently being propagated within travel youth sports today. While games are important, Long Island Hustle focuses on the development of our athletes both mind and body through systematic teaching of the fundamentals. We feel this is best done in a controlled practice environment. Our day-to-day goal will be to teach each our athletes to play the game the proper way, learning to win as a team and to develop themselves individually as athletes toward their specific goals. We are looking to establish a culture of hard work and dedication to the craft.
LONG ISLAND HUSTLE BASEBALL TEAMTEAM PHILOSOPHY
The Long Island Hustle philosophy is built from a foundation and proven process developed at Swing like a Pro, our baseball brand. Swing Like a Pro has been in business for over 8 years and has built a reputation based on a comfortable and family like atmosphere and results.
We believe it is critical that youth coaches aim to instill in their young athletes a love and passion for sports while teaching the right techniques and fundamentals. Long Island Hustle hires successful athletes and teachers to provide instructional training and those that share the mission and goals of our team.
Long Island Hustle is led by Greg Connors, former Seattle Mariner. Greg has the unique combination of playing, teaching and coaching experience. Greg will oversee all training aspects at the facility including supporting the coaches with practice plans, clinics and private lessons when needed. We leverage a proven and standardized instructional training process to train all of athletes ages 8-16. To ensure this happens, we begin with the end in mind. We view games as our TEST. We must decide where we want our athletes to be during the competitive season and work backwards to create a program that will get them there both mind and body. It’s just like making a game plan in any sport. Decide what’s going to help your athletes be the most successful and then put together a plan to put them in that ideal scenario.
