The program runs for 8 weeks, on a Friday night, 7.30pm - 9.00pm, commencing 25th July at the Brahma Lodge Indoor Sports Centre (Clayson Rd Salisbury East).

Cost is $10 per session - to cover the cost of hiring the facility

The program is based on a structure put together by Baseball SA for the BITE Junior Academy, and will be run by some of our coaches who have just returned from a national U13 tournament on the Gold Coast.

Please pass this information on to friends/family that may be interested in coming out to try baseball this season. The program will cover the following skills areas:

Defensive Skills: Glovework, throwing and fielding mechanics, throwing technique, infield/outfield plays, defensive drills
Offensive Skills: Batting mechanics, foot/hand/hips timing, quick hands, basic situation hitting, baserunning.
Conditioning: Basic and age appropriate conditioning, working core, arms, legs.

This is a great opportunity for kids to get a head start on their skills in the coming season. There are limited places available, so register quickly to secure a place.
