The off-season offers a unique opportunity for players to make significant adjustments to their game without having to compete in game situations. Our goal with winter training is to provide players with the opportunity to develop as well rounded baseball players and more superior athletes. Combining skill development with strength & conditioning sessions allows players to progress more quickly in areas like hitting power, throwing velocity, and base running speed. The holistic nature of the Academy Program will encompass skill development, the implementation of a mental approach to the game, physical development for enhanced performance, and injury prevention. Academy players will train on Wednesday and Friday nights. Catchers will also train on Wednesday nights during a session focused specifically on catcher’s defense.
