Coaching Philosophy: All members of the Fellowship Christian School program will be fundamentally sound in basic skills and techniques of the game, understand and execute the team offensive and defensive strategies, know the rules of the game and be well-disciplined in conduct, both on and off the field. It is also imperative that players understand their role in the program, and what it means to be part of the team. Team will always come before individual. Working for and accomplishing common goals will be the ultimate gratification that anyone can get from participating in a team activity. All the players and coaches within the FCS baseball program understand that they are part of something special. All players and coaches will be held to high standards and expectations that will make each player a proud representative of their family, school and community.
