  • Pitching
  • Catching
  • Rules of the Game

The club will provide all equipment needed, so participants only need to come in clothes suitable for outdoors. As all sessions are held on grass, then trainers should suffice at that time of year.

Towards the end of the course, we will also be looking to organise some games between the participants and bringing in some existing members, to give a flavour of playing the game. Following on from the completion of the course, all attendees will be eligible and well positioned to attend the clubs off season practices that are run through the winter, should they wish to continue, and then of course move into squads for the 2017 baseball season.

Obviously it is advantageous to attend all the sessions, but at that time of year, we recognise, that holidays may get in the way, so it is not compulsory to be available for all sessions.

To register your interest in these sessions or if you have any questions, then please contact the club, either via email
