Meet the coaches!

By Aces Baseball Club 07/30/2017, 1:00pm PDT

Meet Coach Brady!

Brady has been involved in coaching baseball since graduating Shorewood High School in 2006. Following high school, Brady went on to take the mound pitching for Shoreline Community College, and was then recruited to play for the Menlo Park Legends and San Diego Force. 

Brady has coached for several Seattle area competitive select baseball organizations for the last 11 years, and served as a head coach for the last three years.  Brady was varsity pitching coach for the Monroe High school bearcats during the 2015 and 2016 seasons. He has coached for First Swing Foundation Summer camps 2007-2011.

"I was taught to play this game by coaches who never played professionally, but had a fierce passion for baseball. As a kid I never had all five tools, I was lucky if I had three. But I saw first hand that players like myself became great because these coaches believed in potential, and were willing to pour their time and skill into developing it. Coaches never gave up on me, and as a result I was motivated to listen, work, and experienced successes in ways I never imagined. My dream now is to invest my love of baseball alongside like-minded men to help kids believe in their capability to reach the next level, to grow in character, and to remember me."

Aces Baseball Club is a competitive, affordable, and unified organization seeking to develop driven and passionate players to excel on the field, in the classroom, and to grow in character. We value a fun atmosphere with team and family chemistry that keeps everyone engaged in the game.

We believe a coaches' influence surpasses the ball field. Aces selects dedicated, passionate, knowledgeable, decisive men to lead by example and serve as a positive role model. We value the unique coach-player bond and structure training so that all players within the organization will have access to and training from all coaches. We believe this method provides the maximum instruction, repititions, inter-club cohesion, and unified approach.

We value the education and competitive spirit that comes from training in a mixed age group setting, and would like to challenge players through opportunities to play above their age level.

We emphasize academic priorities to keep kids eligible for high school and college. We aim to promote players through showcase tournaments, player film, and field level, in a ddition to educating players and parents on how to stay visible and on track for college recruitment.

Aces Team Philosophy

By Aces Baseball Club 08/23/2018, 10:45am PDT

Aces Baseball Club has a slightly different take on team and coaching structure then many other select organizations. First, Aces has selected core coaches who will be present at all practices and games. All players will have the opportunity to come to know and interact with the respective coaches. We believe that in doing this, players have access to more insight and instruction, and build solid player-coach relationships to last their subsequent seasons with the Aces. In addition, coaches have a comprehensive knowledge of player skills, potential, and work ethic and can recommend opportunities to play above their age level.

Secondly, the Aces program is designed to put players in more mixed age group settings. Training kids in this fashion will improve bonding and team chemistry throughout the organization, will challange kids skills and strength, foster healthy competition, and will allow players opportunities to earn promotion to play at higher age levels.

As in the minor leagues, players may be promoted up to play at a higher age level per coach reccomendation. Teams will also be scheduled for at least one higher level tournament. Promotion in this way offers an opportunity to continually develop our athletes, while keeping in perspective the demands of the next level.

Lastly, Aces baseball club wishes to help players at all age levels achieve the goal of college play if desired. Parents will be encouraged to participate during games by filming at bats and key fielding opportunities to supplement practice film collected by coaches. In addition, The coaching staff use the online recruiting tool fieldlevel.com to promote players by increasing visibility to college coaches. Starting as early as 14 gives colleges the ability to see growth and growth potential for kids. Interaction with college coaches will happen. Aces Baseball club wants our players to be prepared to ask questions to find the school with the right athletic, scholastic, and financial fit for them. These classroom practices will include video chats and or conference calls with regional college coaches. Lastly, coaches will be asking your child about GPA's and test scores to keep them on track as we want to promote student athletes.

Aces hit the court in style

January 4, 2020

This season, the Aces broke from the tradition of touch football and instead rang in the new year on the basketball court. The 5 on 5 half-court tournament ended with bragging rights and exhaustion.

Looking forward to another exciting season!
