WinterBall Registration Now Open.

Posted by West Kelowna Minor Baseball on Nov 20 2016 at 10:16PM PST

West Kelowna Minor Baseball’s WinterBall program returns for another year starting this January.

11U- Program kicks off January 7th at Sensisyusten for the first of 10 Saturday Morning Sessions. These sessions will be accompanied by weekly Hitting Sessions, every Monday Night starting January 9th in the Batting Cage at the Okanagan Ice & Training Centre. These will be small-group sessions, with groups of 4-5, with designated timeslots to be distributed. We’ve started with two timeslots, 6:00-6:45 & 6:45-7:30. If necessary, we can add an additional timeslot from 7:30-8:15.

The Saturday Morning Sensisyusten Sessions will be run by West Kelowna NCCP-Certified Coaches with assistance from the 18U AAA Players. Focus will be on Throwing, Fielding, Defense, Base-running with Pitching & Catching being added in February once arms have been strengthened.

The Monday Hitting Sessions will focus exclusively on Hitting Fundamentals with emphasis on hitting-for-contact and building hand-eye co-ordination. Visualization, tee work, soft toss & live pitching will all be used to help players develop their hitting skills.

Cost: $80 for Saturday Sessions ONLY – $125 for Saturday & Monday Sessions
