In a rare approach in today’s athletic environment, Coach O’Hara and additional staff will be combining Baseball Instruction with Academic Mentoring. Placing a high emphasis on academics, the series will teach the tools and habits needed for present and future success in the classroom while also working on baseball skills (Primary Hitting, Defensive instruction on Indv. Basis.)

Topics Covered: Study Skills, Time Management, Organizational Skills, Note-Taking Strategies, and College Prep Work (Social Profile, School Searching, Future Planning)

Coach O’Hara brings a unique skill set that, in addition to coaching college baseball and football, includes 3 years of experience teaching College Skills Courses at the collegiate level stemming from his time on the Student Success Board as a Coach/Teacher at DelVal University. He currently assists in the Academic Support Department at SJU, mentoring student-athletes in their academic plans for success.
This is distinctive program designed to help prepare players for their life after baseball is done, as well as strengthen their present academic tool-box in preparation for their college search. This is for the serious and committed student-athlete, seeking assistance in the classroom as well on the field! The series was scheduled on Friday nights to demonstrate an example of some of the sacrifices that need to be made in order improve on, and off the field. (Ex: putting social plans on the back-burner to focus on academics, and baseball skills)
