Baseball Academies: Fall 2018
Little Bombers Big League
One of the longest running baseball programs at The Shrewsbury Club, Little Bombers Big League is for players ages 5-7, that have that special “itch” for baseball. This fun and energetic youth baseball program teaches young players how to play the game, in a fun and challenging way.
The first half of each day focuses on basic fundamentals such as hitting, fielding, (outfield and infield) throwing mechanics, catching, pitching and base running; in a skills and drills type format. The second half consists of live game play on our full-size indoor turf field. The group breaks into two teams (red and navy) with our professional coaching staff providing live pitching. We include live pitching because it’s important to teach young players not to be afraid of the ball, in a safe and fun environment.

Small Group Academies
Small Group Academies are a terrific choice for players who enjoy a group setting. Academies are set up to include hitting every session. Based on the player’s development plan created during the optional evaluation process, players will be assigned into specific academies such as hitting, fielding, (infield, outfield or both) pitching and catching. Each academy purchase includes 10 one hour sessions.
Team Performance Training
Every Athlete needs an edge. Strength & Conditioning and Speed & Agility are vital for athletes who aspire to compete at their full potential in their sport. The talent pool has increased with specialization of sports at an early age. High school sports have also seen the competition improve as well. No student should miss out on opportunity to play high school, travel or college sports due to a lack of training. Athletes who begin resistance and conditioning training at a young age develop their coordination faster than those who don’t. Performance Training provides structure and discipline with guaranteed results. Athletes who enroll in Performance Training will begin to learn their own bodies and what they are capable of. They will be provided with a person workout plan drawn up by their Performance Training coach specific to their needs and based on their sport or sports of interest.
