ABOUT THE BLASTERS
Belmont Blasters baseball is founded in the belief that if you gather together a group of remarkable athletes with good character and team focus, surround them with experienced and development minded coaching, and provide them with an opportunity to be part of something larger than themselves, then great things happen—things like teamwork, confidence, camaraderie and trust. All important and lifelong assets that remain when the strength, quickness and agility fade away.

To develop BRSLL players from an early age so that they are prepared to compete at a high level by the All Star ages of 10 through 12 and beyond, while allowing them to participate in and enjoy the Little League experience and make lasting friendships.
What This Means
- Players from B/RS get more exposure to a higher level of baseball from an early age
- Players are given the tools and structure necessary to potentially develop into BRSLL All-Star caliber players when they are age 10 – 12
- Players get to enjoy the Little League experience, as Blasters is meant to augment Little League – not replace or interfere with it
- Players leave the program equipped to compete at the high school level and beyond
- Players are taught good character, respect for others, self-confidence, leadership, and teamwork
- Players leave the program with life-long friends and memories, and have fun! Parents too!!
Commitment (This is not Little League)
All Blasters are gifted players from within Belmont-Redwood Shores Little League. Each is an impressive athlete, but their true power lies in what they do as a team. A team with a passion not only for baseball, but also for supporting each other both on and off the field to attain a common goal. Our goal is to make the playoffs in every tournament we enter. A lofty goal by any measure, especially in high-level tournament level baseball. This success requires a high level of dedication and commitment from every player and their supportive families.
- Showing up to practices and games is not optional
- Show up on time and ready to go
- Working on your own outside of Blasters activities
- Blasters activities should be a priority
- Getting players to practices/games on time
- Communicate availability/schedule changes promptly
- Let the coaches coach
- Support all of the players, not just your own
- Represent Blasters Baseball well at tournaments
- Enjoy the experience… It goes by too fast
Balancing Blasters with Other Sports
- Blasters fully supports and encourages playing multiple sports, especially at the younger ages
- When older teams extend into the Fall:
- Practices scheduled for Sundays – leaves Saturdays for AYSO, M&M, NextLevel
- Request late game times for Fall tournaments to avoid conflict
- At the older ages, realistically it gets more challenging to play multiple club-level sports, but rec league level (AYSO, M&M, NextLevel) can be done with little conflict
Blasters is a competitive baseball program. Teams are formed through try-outs and not everyone makes a team. We believe our development philosophy build the strongest, most competitive teams over time, and prepares players for the next level of baseball. Our recent 12u Blue teams have shown the model works, having tremendous success against top teams from across the bay area, and in Cooperstown.
