Fall Ball Training Week - 10u-16u
For our first week of practices teams 10u-16u will partake in a series of 3 intensive training sessions! During these sessions, the players will learn the fundamentals of team baseball. Session focuses will vary by age.
10U -14U: We’ll focus on how to teach ‘big boy baseball.’ Including leading off bases, holding runners as a pitcher, steal and bunt defense, pitchers fielding practice, and overall team defense like how to position cuts, backing up bases, and learning to communicate on the field!
15U-16U: The first week will serve as an opportunity for us to get on the same page with our defensive concepts so we can hit the ground running when the season starts focusing on areas that need to be addressed for the team and individually.
Team practice 2 times a week.
