For 2017 we bring back our Skills Day to ASL and will be offering 3 proper outdoor Spring Training Sessions. The goal is to get our players and coaches ready for the best regular season ever. Our Spring Training Sessions will be offered as a package for £25 for all Competitive League players. Spring Training will be available to Developmental Leagues players for free.
Competitive League Spring Training Sessions (optional) will be offered on March 11, 18 & 25. This extra training is for all players and coaches in our competitive leagues. We are flying in coaches from Chicago’s highly regarded Elite Baseball Academy. These are some of the top youth baseball coaches in the USA. A sign-up during registration will be sent to reserve your spot,
We will use Spring Training to evaluate all of our young athletes in the basic skills like pitching, batting, throwing and catching. Our league's commissioners then use this information to help in selecting balanced teams. Our focus is on the kids having fun and one of the best ways to do that is to try to give each team an equal chance of winning. Spring Training will go a long way in helping us to do that.
