Player Development Coordinator
Time to start sharpening up those baseball skills, as the new baseball season is right around the corner!
This year, Hopkins Baseball's winter training program will again offer (2) different programs, designed for players of all abilities: Winter Workouts and Player Clinics. Please see details below.
2018 HBA Players (13, 14 & 15 year olds) are welcome to participate in one program, both, or a combination of the two as their schedules and availability permit.
As in the past, we are offering two different payment options:
Option #1: Flat Fee - $150 for all (10) sessions. Attend as many as you'd like/can. (Avg Cost $15.00/Session)
Option #2: Register for individual sessions @ $20/Session. (Walk up registrations for single sessions will also be accepted with payment at the door.)
NOTE: Have your workout and clinic sessions selected prior to starting your registration session. If you already registered for one or more dates, the system will not allow you to go back in and register for additional dates. You will have to pay at the door.
A series of structured baseball workout sessions lead by Hopkins American Legion that will include stretching, cardio work and reinforcement of baseball fundamentals through various drill stations.
These workouts are designed to help players of all abilities prepare for the upcoming season.
