Spring Training

Spring Training will be moved to Sunday, May 21st, 8pm @ our usual space Trinity Bellwoods Diamond #1 (SkyDome) – and will follow the same format.

Come on out to our annual Spring Training Day!  It’s time to stretch those muscles, dust off the cobwebs, and work in our gloves!! This year we’ll be trying to focus on building some basic skills for hitting, throwing, catching, and running — followed by some game simulations! 

8:00pm-8:20pm – Meet & Greet with Your Teammates! 

A little time to get to meet your teammates, the coordinating committee, and captains.

8:20pm-8:30pm – Stretching Workshop (Craig) 

A short stretching session to prep us for using muscles commonly used during games! 

8:30pm – 9:15pm –Station 1 (Phill & Darren) – Fundamentals of Catching and Throwing  Stations 2 (Craig & Andy) — Fundamentals of Hitting and Running

We will divide folks into two groups, where you’ll be given some instruction on the basics of the game, some key tips (depending on your skill level & experience) for getting ready for the season, and modelling some drills you might be able to do with friends at home. 

9:15pm – 10:00pm – Simulation Game

You will get to try out different positions on the field with Field of Dreamer trainers positioned in various spots to help give you some tips on positioning, strategy, and performance.  Folks will rotate through getting a chance to hit and run the bases too! 

Note: We are really hoping that the weather reports for Sunday, April 30th improve, but if we need to cancel because of inclement weather, we’ll send the league an email by 1pm on Sunday and we’ll reschedule our spring training day for Sunday, May 21st.
