Events and Programming - Past & Present

Director of High School Baseball Development & Operations 

Jon is a native of Houston, Texas, and played for the Houston Heat. The Heat, a member of Premier Baseball, is a highly respected national organization based out of Texas. He came to Missouri on a baseball scholarship and unfortunately suffered a career-ending injury. Gibbens has spent the last 10 years as a competitive club coach.  He strives to focus on player development through encouraging positive attitudes, in-game focus, giving 100% effort both on and off the field, and data-driven mechanical adjustments.

Some of Jon’s duties for the Midwest Mavs will be:

    • Work with the ball player and family to learn about the goals and objectives of each ballplayer academically and athletically.
    • Serve as administrator of our Sports Recruits program. 
    • Conduct timeline checkpoints for the age groups 14U-18U.

The MAVS are excited to announce our integration with SportsRecruits — a software platform to help you manage your recruiting process!  This is included in the High School age fee structure and is going to be a great tool for our families.

As a club, we chose SportsRecruits to ensure you all have access to best-in-class technology to attack your recruiting process. Check out this quick 5-minute video to learn more about the platform: Platform Overview – Why SportsRecruits  

We are excited to launch an Athletic Scholarship Educational program for our MAVS families age 14U through our HS age summer teams.   This partnership is with RecruitMe.  RecruitMe is owned and operated locally by Brent Hanks of Ozark, Missouri.

This opportunity is designed to help you navigate the college application, scholarship, and recruiting process. Another great resource for our MAVS Families.
