The Winter Workout sessions are intended to prepare players for the upcoming spring season. UTB players will have the opportunity to attend 20-25 workout sessions over the winter. These are scheduled twice a week for the players convenience. One session will be as a group session with other age groups and the other will be as a team only session. We like to get our players to attend at least 1 session per week to stay sharp with hitting and fielding drills.
UTB Winter Workouts utilize specialized drills supervised and taught by high school coaches, professional players and/or paid instructors. We have Parent coaching for our younger teams 10-13u teams. For the older Diamond League teams we prefer to hire paid Managers to run the teams. They typically are current or ex-high school baseball coaches, minor league ball players or current local college players.
