Academy Basics - Softball is for players that are 7 or 8 years of age during the summer months. This program will offer 12 training sessions starting in mid-June and running through mid-September. This session is lighter than our full Academy sessions and focuses on an introduction to softball with basic skills of hitting, throwing, and fielding in a fun, game-oriented way. There is no competition component to this session and it does not require the purchase of a jersey. Players will play in short-side or full sided (pending numbers) scrimmages during many of the practices. Practices are run by USA Baseball "C" certificate holders and Positive Coaching Alliance "Double-Goal" Coach Certificate Holders. 2-Hour Sessions will typically be held on Saturdays at 12:00PM. Schedule is subject to change to accommodate make-ups for bad weather or other schedule conflicts.
