Team UK Academy off to a flying start!
Team UK's 2019/20 Academy got off to an emphatic last month when over 20 youngsters descended upon Milton Keynes for their first taste of baseball action this off-season.
Players aged 6-9 were put through their paces for four hours by our talented group of coaches hailing from British baseball clubs across the country.
The first half of the day primarily focussed on throwing and infield work, with the remainder devoted to hitting stations leading into our first indoor coach-pitch game.
Team UK General Manager Matt Crawshaw said "The kids looked sharp, had bags of enthusiasm and whole lotta fun! We are looking forward to our second session which is being held next Sunday."
New players can get involved as we will have a handful of 'walk in' spaces available at each session, as we know some players cannot commit to each and every Academy session. The walk in rate is £20 per session and will need to be paid in cash on the day.
Players who participate on this 'walk in' basis will not be eligible for a Team UK Academy hat or t-shirt.
If you are interested in attending next Sunday's Academy session on a walk in basis please contact us at the earliest opportunity as spaces will be limited.
