Train & Play
A 4 week Train and Play clinic for our younger players in September. The classes will be for 90 minutes. Players will be split up into small groups for the first 45 minutes and they will work on drills such as sliding, infield, outfield, hitting, and baserunning. For the remaining 45 minutes, they will play a live game. Teams will be divided up by the instructors. This is the best of both worlds as we are still able to get some quality instruction to the players and the players get to enjoy a game for their hard work and training efforts. Throughout the game, the instructors will be helping the players on game strategy, game flow, and position roles.
This class touches on all the basics of baseball including hitting, fielding, base running, sliding, and general game strategy. Geared towards the younger player to keep them interested in the game and continuously learning. The class is led by Senior High School Varsity Baseball Players (with some help from our professional instructors on site).
