Personal and academic information

 
Tim is a 21-year-old athlete from Haaksbergen, The Netherlands. Tim is a very social person who loves to travel and likes to do things with other people. He is a very athletic guy and in addition to running he used to compete in survival events and play soccer.

 

Tim graduated the high school  (MBO level) in 2016. In 2016/2017 he took a gap year and traveled around the world for one year. It was a big eye opener for him, because he saw that not every country is similar to the Netherlands. He did volunteer work in Thailand as an English/sports teacher and did farm work in Australia. In the school year 2017/2018, Tim enrolled in a Dutch university majoring sport, health and management and successfully passed all of his classes.

 

In order to develop further as an athlete Tim is now looking to transfer to an American University in the spring of 2019. He is scheduled to take his TOEFL in October of 2018.

 

Athletic information


At the age of 11, Tim started running and became a member of the Track & Field club in his hometown. First, he competed in both  cross country and survival races and even though he was doing well in the survival races he preferred the cross country. It was when Tim started his first year of university that he quit the sport survival and fully focused on running. Since then, Tim has made major improvements and his times improved drastically. Last year improved his 5k time with 40 seconds and now runs 5k in 16:24 minutes and 8 kilometers in 27:46 minutes. 

 

Tim is scheduled to compete in a few races this fall and his coach expects him to run a 5 k in 16:15 minutes in December of this year. Tim is doing a running competition (6 races) this fall in his province, he is also doing several races in his region.

Personal and academic information

 

Koen is a 17-year-old guy who is born in Wauconda, IL and lived with his Dutch parents in the United States until the age of 7. In 2004 he and his family moved back to The Netherlands where Koen went to high school at the Saint Joris College, which supports high-performance athletes. 

His junior year Koen received the international Talent status, issued by the National Olympic Committee, what allowed him into the school section with high-performance athletes only. Despite the intense training program and long daily commute he successfully completed his HAVO high school degree (Higher General Secondary Education) without any delay in June 2015.

Due to the high workload at the Academy, the national team, and school Koen has learned how to be organized and to be a focused student and player.  

 

Athletic information

 

At the age of 4 Koen started to play baseball at the Wauconda park district for 3 seasons before moving the Netherlands. He then played at a local club for 5 seasons before Koen was scouted by the Bixie Baseball Academy in 2010. 

The Bixie Baseball Academy is 1 out of 6 MLB-founded academies that recruits and develops talented players in the age of 12-18 years. The mission of the academies is to train and grow players with the aim to reach an American college or MLB club. From that moment on Koen started practicing 7 times a week with 2 games on Saturdays. In addition to developing baseball techniques the academy also educates about nutrition, recovery and the mental aspects of being a high performance athlete. 

After 4 years with Bixie, Koen outgrew the academy and played for the highest men’s team of the Oosterhout Twins that plays at the 2nd highest senior level in The Netherlands.

During his junior career Koen has has competed at the highest level both nationally as well as internationally. He has been a member of the Dutch national teams since he was 14 years old. He and his team became champion at the U16 European championship in Jablonec, Czech Republic in 2012 and became runner up at the U18 European championship in Ostrava, Czech Republic in 2015. In addition to this Koen was also selected for all 3 MLB scouting tournaments in Europe in 2015. 

This year Koen moved to Amsterdam in order to practice and play at a higher level. Koen is going to play the 2016 season in the Rookie league team of Hoofddorp Pioniers. He has the possibility to move up to the Hoofdklasse, the highest level men’s league in the Netherlands. 

Koen is 6’0” ft, 173 lbs, reliable left-handed pitcher that has a very consistent throw.  He is a very successful pitcher due to his off-speed pitches and the movement on his pitches. Koen has a great attitude during practice and games, mentally very strong, very coachable and is always looking for ways to improve himself. He fits everywhere in the bullpen or rotation, from starting pitcher to reliever or closer.
