  • Exposing the players to more advanced baseball plays and positioning used at the PeeWee level (base running, bunt defence, hit and run, defensive positioning, etc.);
  • Targeted training for specific positions (middle infield, catchers, pitchers, outfield, 1st base, etc.); and
  • Individual development, as needed.
  • Indirectly evaluating players for Summerball placement
