Guildford Baseball Club will be running its annual Beginners Baseball course, in November and December this year.
The course is aimed at anyone, aged 16 and up, who is new to the game or with little previous experience, and who would like to try the sport or is just looking for something new.
The course consists of 4 sessions, with each session focusing on a specific skill of the game, in a series of different activities to help build up both the understanding and ability to perform that skill. These will be combined with education on both the rules and the strategy of the game, and usually rounded off each week, with a mini-game based on that week’s instruction. Everyone is allowed to progress at their own rate in order to both gain an understanding of how to play the game, as well as giving participants the confidence to start playing in more organised games and training sessions.
All sessions are held in an indoor sports hall, and will be lead by BBF accredited coaches from the club. All equipment is provided and so you only need to turn up in clothing suitable for indoor activity. Following on from these sessions, the club moves into it’s off season and pre-season training sessions early in the New Year, which attendance on this course, will give you free entry to. During January and February, these will also be indoors, and generally with a focus on hitting and pitching. If you then decide you wish to carry on and join the club, you will be added to one of the squads for the 2019 baseball season.
The course will run on a Sunday afternoon from 2-4pm. The first session is Sun Nov 11th, and the last one on Sun 2nd Dec.
All sessions are at Broadwater School Sports Centre in Godalming (GU7 3BW), which is on Summers Road, just off the B3000, and easily accessible from either the A3 at Compton, or from Guildford. Just note that the entrance to the Sports Centre is at the back at the school, and parking is on the tennis courts to the right hand side, as you enter (going to the left side of the school takes you into Guildford Hockey Club).
Cost is just £5 for the whole 4 weeks, and also entitles you to free Guildford Baseball Club t-shirt. To register your interest, please contact the club
