Leaside Leafs Elite Recruit Form
Welcome to the Leaside Leafs Elite program. Not only is the Leaside organization the tightest, most welcoming baseball family, our 18u Elite program is designed to help players succeed at the collegiate level while endorsing multi-sport athletes and high academic standards. Our fully non-parent coaching staff includes GTBL, IBL, Collegiate and ex-pro players from the GTA. Our program focuses on refining optimal mechanics, strength and conditioning, and versatility at multiple positions on the field to be adaptable in competitive collegiate programs. We evaluate UCL stress levels from Motus’ groundbreaking biomechanical technology, slow-mo video, and side-by-side comparisons to the best players in the MLB to educate players on their areas for refinement. Players are challenged to learn modern defensive strategies in relation to opponent’s swing tendencies and data-tracking. In sum, our program is an exemplary model for holistic player development.
