OKC Broncos 10U
Spring 2019 Team Info
The OKC 9/10U Broncos coaching staff is excited about our upcoming spring season for 2019. As always, our goal is to use baseball as a tool to develop young men. The OKC Broncos program places a strong emphasis on fundamental skills training, teamwork, and character development.
Key Dates (subject to change)
Practice begins 2/5
Days: Tuesday and Thursday
Location: Epiphany of the Lord Catholic Church 7336 W Britton Rd, Oklahoma City, OK 73132
Practice will be a time where we focus on improving basic fundamentals and developing new skills. This will mean different things for each player, but ALL players of all skill levels will benefit greatly from this practice time. The skill sets our players need to compete at the next level are expanding rapidly, and practice is an opportunity for them to develop away from the pressure of games during the regular season.

Team communication will take place primarily through a platform called Slack. This is how team messages will be sent, but also how you will communicate with coaches (not via text or email). Slack has a web interface, as well as apps for iOS, Android, and desktops. If you have not received an invitation to join Slack, contact Coach David.
Parent Meeting – TBD
Save the date! Our Parent Meeting will be at 5pm after practice on February
