Fall Instructional Baseball Leagues
Our Instructional Baseball Leagues are designed for beginning and intermediate players (not for ‘travel team’ players). No experience is necessary. These programs will help to get your player ready for the upcoming season.
Instruction is provided by experienced, local baseball instructors.
Leagues cover both individual and team skills. All baseball skills are covered (as time and age allows): hitting, base running, fielding, pitching, and position play.
Session time is split 50-50 between skill building through drills and small-sided, controlled games (no scores are kept). The focus is on LEARNING and on HAVING FUN!
Equipment Required: All players must have their own glove. Bats and batting helmets can be borrowed from The Edge during each session. Players should come in ‘baseball attire:’ baseball pants, jersey, and baseball cap.
Small Group Hitting Instruction
Our Small Group Hitting Training Program focuses exclusively on improving the player’s ability to hit the baseball successfully. Groups are small with a maximum of 6 players per instructor. The session format is one hour per week for 6 weeks.
With the low instructor-to-player ratio and the multi-week nature of the program, the instructors not only get to know the players’ hitting strengths and needed improvement areas but also get to know them as individuals. There is no ‘starting over’ every week with player evaluations. Instead, each week the instructor provides the context for the player to improve on the previous week’s skill level.
Improvement is made through a combination of demonstrations of proper technique by the instructor, tee-work, soft-toss work, and live-throw work. Players will get plenty of swings in each session.
These classes will be led by experienced, local youth baseball instructors who were members of the coaching team in our most recent Winter Break Camp.
