Blue Wave provides beginning, intermediate, and advanced baseball instruction, training, and team play for players that want to take their game to the next level and stay one step ahead of the competition for youth All-Star, high school roster, college, or professional baseball opportunities.
Blue Wave’s formula for success in developing ball players at any level is based on the following directives:
Blue Wave coaches and trainers come from some of the top colleges, MLB teams, and high school coaching staffs in Southern California over the years, including: Cal State University Fullerton, Long Beach State, Stanford, Sacramento State, Fresno State, Vanguard, OCC, IVC, Angels, Rockies, Red Sox, Mets, Mariners, Dodgers, Diamondbacks, Phillies, and more.
Blue Wave has been fertile proving grounds for coaches in Southern California as well, producing many notable high school and club coaches as well.
Blue Wave coaching alum include Bret Kay (JSerra), David Bacani (Santa Margarita Catholic HS), Bishop Griggs (Saddleback HS), Bret LeVier (El Toro), Jason Smith (Fullerton JC), Ben Owens (Tustin HS), Benny Bonilla (Trosky Baseball), Matt Sorensen, Derric Merrell, Louis Baltierra, Mike Fuchs, Charlie Phillips, and more.
And former Blue Wave players are now also making their way into the coaching ranks, including Justin Viele (LA Dodgers), Matt Florer (LMU), Jon Hurst (Diamondbar High School) and Carlos Cornejo (Mater Dei).
As they say, “practice makes perfect.” And, Blue Wave lives by these words weekly practices for high school players and twice-weekly practices for pre-high school teams. Typically, practice time is split equally between fielding and hitting.
Though practices is the most important element of any team, the “game is the thing” and no one plays more consistently than Blue Wave teams, which play a minimum of two tournaments a month or league games on weekends (sometimes both) to play an average of 6 to 8 games per month, more if possible.
All Blue Wave teams play in highly competitive Spring, Summer, and Fall/Winter leagues as well as local, regional, and national tournaments throughout the year.
Pre-high school teams typically play in California Competitive Youth Baseball (CCYB) league on weekends play in local tournaments, including USSSA, AAU. Xtreme Diamond Sports, PreGame Sports and Hardcore Baseball. Younger teams may also travel to Cooperstown Dreams Park or Omaha during the College World Series.
High school-level Blue Wave teams participate in AABC-sanctioned 18U Connie Mack and 16U Mickey Mantle leagues or major showcase tournaments and events hosted by USA Premier Baseball, Under Armour-Baseball Factory, Perfect Game, USA Baseball, Arizona Fall Classics, and others.
