The season starts in April and ends by early June. Times to be announced, depending on number of players as we may have two sessions each day.
There are no extra practices at this level.
Each session is a learning session with different drills for different skills and a mini game. We have coordinators, but parents are asked to help lead small groups from station to station. Each session is an hour.
SSWRMSA provides a t-shirt and hat to each player - theirs to keep.
Your player needs running shoes and a glove to participate in Learn to Play.
When batting with real bats is introduced, they are required to wear a helmet with a face cage.
SSWRMSA has helmets to borrow - alternatively, you may want to have your own for sanitary reasons.
