Frequently asked questions

My child is over the age of 9, what pre-season training is happening for that age group?

We will resume outdoor practice for our u13/u16 age-groups earlier than previous seasons. We expect them to be held on selected Saturdays or Sundays from mid-March.

We also are arranging a trip to the baseball batting cages near Wembley on Sunday 26 March.

Finally, if your child is age 14 or older in 2017, they are eligible to attend our Baseball & Softball Boot Camp being held on selected Sundays during February 2017.
