GLL Winter Baseball Academy – Skills Training
Winter baseball skills training was first offered in 2017 due to popular demand for a fun way for players to learn and maintain skills during the winter months. For 2019, GLL is pleased to offer a new Winter Baseball Academy program for each Division consisting of nine baseball skills sessions at indoor facilities in Ottawa East and Lowertown between January 12 and March 30, 2019 at no extra cost to Spring Ball registrants.
GLL’s Winter Baseball Academy sessions are a great way for experienced baseball players to maintain and strengthen skills during winter months. And, for those just beginning to play baseball, our T-Ball and Rookies baseball skills development program is a proven fun way to learn the basics of baseball and get ready for Spring.
