SMBA has established our first ever club teams! Players will learn the nuances of the game with a practice each week and then play in an instructional intra-squad scrimmage weekly at their position on the weekend! The goal is to learn in real time how to play and take your position to an elite level during game time! Class is maxed out to 12 players to allow for low substitution and players learning their position over the 7 week instructional period!
Our Instructional program is all about doubling down on drills and instruction cover areas such as stance, backhands, double plays, bunt coverage, foot work, ground balls, taking proper angles to the ball, fly balls, rundowns, and situational play. Hitting will consist of Tee work, bat speed analysis, velocity, balance, driving the ball with live hitting and eye hand coordination drills to enhance ball visibility. Pitching will consist of mechanics, velocity, arm care, footwork and pitching defensive skills. Catchers will work on pop times, sliding, angles, blocking, managing the game with signs. Base running from sliding, turning and speed! Pitcher’s Only welcomed!
Mondays 5-7 pm meet at Memorial Park. Sundays 9am-4pm meet at Marine Park. No class on Monday, February 15.
