Saturday Skills

As the spring baseball season quickly approaches we'd like to make a few exciting program and scheduling announcements.
 
Last spring we ran a series of Saturday morning skill clinics for each grade level. The sessions were organized by the Director(s) of Player Development and run by each league coordinator with the help of all the coaches. The goal of these sessions is to get the kids valuable instruction and repetitions in a fun, relaxed environment with friends they might otherwise not get to see if they are on a different team. The format was fast paced stations meant to keep the kids moving, engaged and building confidence in the basics of throwing, hitting and fielding. The home run derby station was of course the crowd favorite!
 
Due to the success and popularity of what we are now calling Saturday Skills we are happy to announce details and dates for this year.

1. Saturday Skills will begin the first week of March for Majors/Minors indoors at TJO's in Canton from 8:30-11:30AM. See the skills groups and calendar with your specific times. Two of these sessions will take place prior to and assist with Majors evaluations on March 15th and all league aged 11 year old's are strongly encouraged to attend if possible. 

2. Starting April 8 (weather permitting) we will begin outdoors with all other age groups as part of our pre-season 'spring training'.  Standard locations will be where the spring league games are played (Majors/Minors = Morrison, 3rd grade = Martha Jones, 2nd = Downey, 1st = Hanlon).  In addition I'd like to give each grade level one Saturday at Morrison during the season. 

3. The sessions will be organized by the Director of Player Development and all league coaches will be asked to participate. The expectation is that these sessions take priority over practice and coaches should expect to participate as much as possible. Saturday Skills will run the duration of the season unless otherwise cancelled.
