Softball & Baseball Development ProgramUpdated Sunday August 6, 2017 by NLAD.
I'm excited to announce that Next Level Athletic Development and former Major League Baseball Player and current Kansas City Royals minor league coach, Brian Bocock are teaming up to provide a total baseball and softball development program for local athletes, parents and coaches.
Brian was a two sport star in basketball and baseball at Turner Ashby High School and just recently retired from a 9 year professional baseball career that saw him named the Opening Day starting shortstop for the San Francisco Giants at age 23. He's currently a coach in the Kansas City Royals minor league system as well as interning under the Royals Minor League, Mental Skills Coach (sports psychology), Freddy Sandoval.
Clearly Brian brings a wide variety of experience and knowledge beyond just hitting and fielding mechanics. He understands true player development from youth through the professional level, how to handle the recruiting process, and how to develop the often overlooked, mental aspect of performance. Likewise, he shares our passion for helping young athletes reach their full potential.
We are both excited for the opportunity to help area baseball and softball players set a higher standard for success as well as provide education to parents and coaches about the development process!
