OFF SEASON TRAINING FOR TRAVEL

 It is time to focus our efforts on coming back stronger and better in the upcoming season. To keep growing and improving in baseball, it is essential to work on performance all year round. As the common motto states, “Champions are made in the off season.”  If you are waiting for the season to get prepared, you’re preparing too late. 

This program is set up for Travel Level Players to improve on their weaknesses and make them strengths. Over the course of this 5 week program. Players will focus on elevating their hitting, fielding, pitching skills, ARM STRENGTH and FOOT SPEED. The program will also focus on team play (pickoffs, leadoffs, double plays, etc.) Players will be throwing live bullpen sets also hitting live and off machines.
