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
