About

The Good Counsel Baseball Program

Philosophy
At the core of our baseball program at Good Counsel is commitment to develop our young men into true student athletes – those who excel both on the field and in the classroom. We have a comprehensive approach which we believe gives our players the best opportunity to fulfill their potential. We don’t cut corners and we don’t lower our expectations of our players.


Building a Successful Baseball Program and Developing our Players
The Good Counsel baseball program has achieved many successes in its history and has a strong tradition of fielding competitive teams. We have established a rich history that provides a solid foundation for what we expect to accomplish in the future. This foundation is built upon:

  • High caliber coaches and a professional support staff
  • Challenging competition
  • Commitment to excellence
  • A personal approach to student-athlete development
  • Building a ‘team-first’ culture
  • Top-notch facilities
  • Forging partnerships with supporting organizations

Our players know the importance of training and hard work, both in formal practices and individually on their own, and this effort transfers to success on the field. Good Counsel’s brand of baseball is aggressive, smart and intuitive.
