Skills Session Structure: Before session players will arrive and get right to work- run stretch, throw. From there we move into the different skills by position or area on field. Hitting will be mixed into the skills portion of each day – small group and one on one time with a hitting coach. Following the skills portion we will work on team concepts and strategy based on the specific set of skills we focused on that day. We end each day with a live player pitched scrimmage.
