Final Notes

 

  • Enrollment is on a first come, first in basis.  We will limit the number of players due to indoor space limitations. This also ensures that each player receives sufficient individual attention from the instructor.
  • Players must bring gloves and proper gym wear (non-marking shoes).
  • Water bottles and bats (if you have one) are good to bring as well. 
  • Please wear shorts, sweat pants or other stretchy material (no jeans).
