At Nationals Baseball Camps, we're dedicated to the idea of bringing out the personal best in high potential kids and teens. We understand that all children, given the right support structures, have high potential. Inherent to this purpose is a recognition of the unique gifts and skills in each of our campers and athletes, as well as an awareness that to best coach them we have to engage with them, understand them, and meet them where they are on their developmental journey.
The Super Six are a foundation of solid leadership building blocks we use to train our coaches, design our curriculum and engage with campers. These life skills are based in well-established, developmental research and social science. Each of our Nationals Baseball Camp activities and experiences are built upon The Super Six, enabling kids to reinforce life-enhancing skills while having fun, making memories and building the fundamentals of their baseball skills.
The Super Six
Emotional Mastery - "Express Yourself" Kids that are able to identify and communicate their emotions build healthier relationships and avoid the frustrations of feeling misunderstood.
Optimism - "You Choose the Frame" Viewing life through an optimistic lens helps young people achieve at higher levels and avoid the struggles brought on by negative thinking.
Resiliency - "Bounce, Don't Break" Learning how to rebound from setbacks is an important component of building confidence and an integral part of personal development.
Self-Efficacy - "Make Your Difference" Kids with the awareness that they have the power within themselves to create change and new outcomes in their life are more confident and develop a greater sense of responsibility for their future.
Hope & Goal Setting - "See it to be it" Goal setting teaches kids important skills such as focus, decision-making and communication. Studies have strongly linked goal setting to both high levels of achievement and long-term happiness.
Grit & Determination - "Practice is Perfect" With the right exposure to apprenticeship and preparation, kids can learn the important relationship between practice and self-mastery. This teaches tenacity and how to achieve their personal best.
