Fall Registration Open
Developmental Program in MoCo, MD
Registration for the Angels Fall Program in MoCo, MD will remain open for the remainder of the program. The Angels Baseball Fall program is focused on player development. The emphasis will be placed on building individual skills in all areas of the game. The Fall program is currently underway and will end on Saturday October 23rd. We have structured the program to allow for kids that play other Fall Sports to participate in a portion of the Fall Developmental Program without committing to the full schedule. We encourage kids to play multiple sports throughout the year; but also want to give kids a chance to participate in baseball activity, albeit on a limited basis. Numerous studies have shown that kids that specialize in one sport too early are more prone to injury and ‘burn-out’ much sooner than those kids that play multiple sports. We want to reiterate that the Fall is a time for players’ focus to be on their individual development. Players should be playing fewer games and practicing more, the opposite of a baseball player’s Spring season. Click on the link below to learn more.
Support our Be Accountable Program
The Angels Be Accountable program is one that challenges kids to take on the responsibility for their own personal development. The program educates kids on what it means to be accountable, and how we are accountable to ourselves, our school, our family, and community. Using sport as a guide, we show the kids how we can improve a skill without financial investment. The only investment is the will to improve. Since launching the program five years ago, we have conducted the program for kids ages 9-18 in Pennsylvania and Maryland. It's important for our kids to learn accountability, and that they are just as responsible for their failures as they are their successes. The Angels program will be conducting multiple BA programs this coming Fall and Winter for various organizations. Click on the link below to donate now and help us fund these programs. Please do contact Jason Aquilante (email@example.com) with any questions.
Winter Hitting Program
Program Starts in January!
Angels Baseball is offering a seven session hitting program this Winter for those players that are serious about improving their hitting skills. The program will have specific goals: improve a player's bat path to the ball; and improve the player's power. We will use BLAST Motion bat sensors to measure a player's bat path and power. We will track a player's data at the initial session, and then again at the final session. In between, we will work on specific drills targeting each area. We will look to improve a player's bat path and power for pitches that are high, low, inside, outside; and for off-speed pitches for the older group. Each session will also include a Strength & Conditioning component that will target a player's balance and strength; two key attributes to improving one's bat path and power. Click on the link below to learn more and Register. Space is limited to 20 kids ages 9-12 and 20 kids ages 13-15 (ages are as of April 30,2022).
Before I joined the Angels Baseball program, I was a poor kid from a rough neighborhood in Philadelphia. Angels Baseball helped me earn a scholarship to Eastern University where I graduated with a bachelors degree in Education. I now have a full-time job and own a home in the Philadelphia suburbs. My dreams were realized because of the core traits of life that I learned during my time with Angels Baseball. I will be forever grateful for my time spent at the academy.
Coach Con is one of the greatest coaches, role models, and leaders that I have had to pleasure to know. He is an amazing instructor of baseball, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. His instruction goes far beyond the game and really is about building/creating great young men who also play the game of baseball the right way. I could never thank him enough for all that he has done and continues to do for my son, team, and myself.
Con imparts the knowledge he has gained over so many years to help everyone achieve the success they are seeking. With our boys, that knowledge and motivation he has imparted has grown beyond the baseball diamond. He has taught them the value and rewards of working hard in their school work, at home and in their community. Anyone who has had the pleasure of working with Con learns that he is guided by his belief of "servant leadership" helping others achieve things within themselves that they never thought were possible.
Con Aquilante's ability to tap into each of his player's focus, desire, and commitment to excellence both on and off the field is immeasurable. When you combine that with top notch technical instruction and a culture where players are focused as much on helping their teammates grow as they are themselves, the result is truly a special experience. Simply put, the Angels program encapsulates the VERY BEST of what sports are all about.
My son joined the Angels team at the age of 11. Though, he was the youngest amongst high-schoolers, Coach Con welcomed him and helped him not only to strengthen his baseball skills but more importantly challenged my son to be confident on the field and in the classroom. Each week, I sat at practice waiting for Con's quote of the day in order to claim it on Monday morning while encouraging my students to believe, work harder, and have fun while doing it.
Throughout the time I have spent with the Angels Baseball program, Coach A has ingrained so much knowledge into my brain in regards to baseball but in addition life skills. Coach is extremely passionate about forming young men not just athletes.
Angels Baseball and Con Aquilante was so much more than exceptional baseball instruction. My son learned about himself and every day ideals- things that he will take with him in life to be successful. The Angels Baseball program was a blessing!
I want to thank coach Con Aquilante, for all that he has done for me. Being a player with the Philadelphia Angels, Coach Aquilante has helped me prepare and continue to get better. He taught me how to train, play, become a better baseball player and be the best person I could be. I have spent a lot of time with Coach A to where he feels like a second father. I have tremendous respect for him in helping me become a successful baseball player and person.
