2020 Indoor Training

Embrun and Russell Join Together for Spring Training

Over the coming weeks EMBA and RMBA will be joining forces to provide indoor spring training at Russell High School.

Participation is limited but currently there is space for additional players. Cost is $10, which will be used to supply/replace required equipment such as the TBalls we use indoors. Current players from the 2019 season are invited to join, new registrants will be able to join once 2020 registration is open. Please contact Steve at Embrun@CRLL.ca for details or if you have any questions

At this time the schedule is fluid as we reach out to confirm additional coaches, the booking times are noted below with specific levels identified for the confirmed sessions. All training is held at Russell High School in the gym, it is located at 982 N Russell Rd, in Russell, the google maps link is below:

- Appropriate sports attire (long sport / track / sweat pants are recommended - avoid shorts)
- Running shoes
- Jock or Jill (cup)
- Baseball glove
- Batting Helmet
- Water bottle

Note: Bats and batting gloves are optional.

Parents, coaches please don't hesitate to bring along a glove as we will be looking for help running stations and drills.

Indoor Practice Program: The program will be adjusted per age level but in general....

Review/Teach Fundamental Skills - confirmation of previous training and consolidation of fundamental throwing, catching, fielding, base running, pitching, batting and bunting.

Specific Skill Training - focused on pitching / catching to increase the level of play overall

Review the Rules - to ensure that the players will understand the game so they can play more effectively at season start.

Baseball oriented conditioning and agility training.

Emphasize Safety - teach the players how to practice and play safely and in control of the balls and bats

But the #1 goal is to have some early baseball fun!!!
