A Chat with Chicagoland Softball Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our extremely efficient training is based on the idea that every second a student is in training, is valuable. We teach the basic fundamentals that the most successful athletes execute. The group class structure encourages players to act as role models and competitors.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Pick a “big sister” to follow around and copy. You will learn the ropes, feel welcome, and get some good tips! .
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The baseball academy is doing quite well and those parents kept asking for a softball program for the boy’s sisters. This area needs more specialized softball training and we will provide it! College softball is on ESPN in prime time - it’s about time to offer more opportunity!
What do you love most about your job?
It’s extremely rewarding to see a young player go from beginner to expert. You get to see their self-confidence and feeling of sense of self-worth grow right before your eyes. Cool!
Chicagoland Baseball Academy
Chicagoland Baseball Academy's 5,000-square-foot training facility reverberates with the clink of balls ricocheting off aluminum bats, the pop of pitches hurtling into practice nets, and the cries of “Got it!” from fielders communicating a pop fly. Owned by longtime baseball trainer and high-school head coach Bill Rosencrans, the Academy helps players improve their games through lessons that isolate essential skills such as power throwing and executing double plays. To ensure each athlete plays to his or her full potential, classes also focus on regular core training, using ropes, medicine balls, and plyometrics to keep bodies in top shape.
