A Great Transition After Summer Baseball for 9-12th graders

The design of the Fall Ball Baseball Academy is for players to transition into an off season training program, while still developing individual baseball skills and their physical conditioning. The fall period will give individual players an opportunity to work on a comprehensive plan that will be in a fun, yet competitive environment.

Head Coach Greg Christodulu and his staff have developed an opportunity for baseball players in grades 9 –12 to transition into a skills and conditioning program during the fall months.
