Fall Academy Session
Our Fall Academy Session begins in early November and ends in mid December. This session meets once per week for one hour. Our fall academy program covers all aspects of baseball/softball including proper throwing, fielding, catching, base running and sliding techniques as well as the "strategy of the game". Each week we concentrate on one fielding aspect of the game. In addition, every weekly session includes hitting instruction and batting cage time and a group competition which utilizes the skill learned in that session. Each class is limited to no more than 18 students and a ratio of no more than six students per instructor is maintained. This program provides the opportunity for players to get involved in an "off season" program to improve and maintain their skills.
