Indoor Batting Practice (8-12 years)

With a tunnel-net and other specialized equipment and our head Little League coaches, players can keep their fundamentals sharp through the off-season with tee work and live BP. Other baseball activity will be practiced in our new Winter Baseball Clinic offering later in the week.
