The 16u team will be based solely on kids who have the drive, desire and right attitude to play college ball at any level, said Storm coach Chris Bennett. This is not a normal commitment.
We now have a full-time pitching coach on board and will spend at least one night a week starting in September at ProCare Physical fitness for sports performance training.
We us an indoor training facility for all ages during the winter, added Bennett. We do not practice in school gyms.
All winter practices start in November and go right through until school / recreation ball starts. There will be winter leagues / tournaments the teams will participate in.
