At MVP we have a motto, "Self-esteem through self-improvement". This attitude permeates throughout everything we teach. Our one-of-a-kind, specialized baseball/softball program goes beyond just the physical training on the field. The core of our teaching begins with heart, attitude, mental and physical training. Our goal is to instill a life-long learning system for both mind and body. Our program is also designed to help parents create successful, dedicated, and respectful children, by reinforcing positive values in our unique baseball setting, Students not only learn how to play baseball or softball, but they learn self-confidence by setting and reaching goals, self-esteem by continual growth, improvement on and off the field, and respect for others and themselves.

MVP Program is a member of the NPA and ABCA

ABCA New Logo
The MVP Program is a member of both the National Pitching Association and American Baseball Coaches Association. Our Instruction staff is certified by both bodies and attends semi-annual conventions and coaches clinics. We are proud to be affiliated with two of the top informational and certification programs in the country. The following is just an overview of both programs:

ABCA Program
 
Provides the opportunity to be part of over 5,700 coaches furthering the education and promotion of the game of amateur baseball.
Provides an exchange of ideas and information among baseball coaches.
Enhances professional growth and development.
Offers unlimited contacts with coaches from around the world. Provides regional/national recognition of coaches and players for outstanding achievements.
Holds the opportunity to attend the largest baseball clinic in the world at the annual convention, featuring over 30 clinic speakers and 200 exhibitors.

National Pitching Assocation
 
The National Pitching Association was formed by leading coaches, athletes, and management teams to help pitchers of all ages safely develop to their fullest potential. In today's non-professional baseball programs, (youth, Little League, college, etc.), too many pitchers get injured thus limiting their opportunity to continue playing baseball. Many times the desire to win has superseded what is best for a young athlete's development and future potential. This combined with general misinformation about what is good, better, or best for the development of young pitchers has seriously impaired or injured pitchers beyond rehabilitation.

With this in mind, the National Pitching Association was formed to:
 
Gather the best research and perform new research Change what we know and believe about what is best for pitchers
Share what we've learned and teach others to learn and use everyday We have brought together the best advisory team and faculty available to help us learn more about how and when to pitch. Through scientific research we are continually updating the basics of pitching.

We focus on teaching:
 
The mechanics of pitching, strength and conditioning requirements, and nutritional necessities, as well as the mental and emotional elements of the sport. We help develop the support group that the pitchers require including their parents and coaches. What we provide is unique and valuable for the pitcher, the parents and the coach.

Cameron Gallaher pitching in last year's 12U World Series
Cameron Gallaher,the starting shortstop, pitcher for Team MVP U13 and three-time West Virginia state champion in wrestling, has added a national Wrestling title to his resume.

Gallaher, 12(will turn 13 this summer), won the schoolboy 102-pound weight class at the 12th annual Ohio Tournament of Champions in Columbus, Ohio, over the weekend. This tournament is advertised as the largest one-day amateur wrestling tournament in the world.

It would be hard to argue with the assertation, considering it featured 3,375 wrestlers on 30 mats.

There were 36 entries in Gallaher's division including wrestlers from Tennessee, New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, wrestling-mad Iowa and West Virginia.

To win the title Gallaher, undefeated in 65 middle school matches during his two-year career, had to win six consecutive matches.

He opened with a 4-0 victory over Pat Gibbons of Solon, Ohio, then defeated James Mees of North Ridgedale, Ohio, in a fall.

Gallaher dusted off Dustin Osterloh of Frankfort, Ohio, 10-3, and eased past Angelo Malvestuto of Niagra Falls, N.Y., 11-0.

The semifinals produced a 9-0 victory over Bryce Rush of Tridelphia and in the finals he had tough match against Ryan Kemmerer of East Greenville, Pa., winning 4-2.

Other wrestlers from north central West Virginia and wrestling under coaches Ray Robe and Rickey Bailey of the East Fairmont Junior Wrestling Club who placed were Erick Hinerman, second at schoolboy 150 pounds, and Mason Bailey, fifth at schoolboy 96 pounds.

Wickid Performance
MVP Now Carries Wickid Gear

image_name2
MVP is proud to announce we carry Wickid Wear.

What is Moisture Management Active System?

WICKid's Moisture Management Active System offers active people wicking performance & comfort which keeps them cool, fresh, energized, light and dry.

How does it work?

As the body temperature rises and sweat forms, WICKid's moisture management active system pulls moisture off the skin to the outside of the fabric which allows it to evaporate quickly.
Moisture is pulled away from the skin to the outside of the fabric by the combination of WICKid's micro-fiber fabric weave and finishing solution called Tempra-Dry
Wicking tests have proven products featuring MMAS to release more moisture then cotton
WICKid's MMAS allows active people to stay cool, fresh, energized, light and dry during those activities that require the best active people have to offer.
WICKid's MMAS allows body temperature to stay regulated in all climates and conditions.
Once your customers have experienced the coolness of WICKid they will never want to sweat in cotton again!
