The Winter workouts at the Chatham Indoor facility located at Rotary Park (30 Tweedsmuir Ave. West, CHATHAM) will start back up in early January. With so many different hockey schedules it is literally impossible to select a "perfect" night.
Pitching (1:1 with Bill Atkinson), fielding and hitting drills will be rotated through each week to keep the boys active. Head Coach Kevin Hay and a couple of Pt. Lambton Pirates will be out to help each night to assist.
7:00PM - 8:30PM each night :
Jan. 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th
Feb. 4th, 11th, 17th, 24th

April 7th, 14th
- $140 total or $10/session (Chqs. payable to Chatham Minor Baseball or CASH will be accepted.)
(this will cover the rental/maintenance fee of the facility)
*** All players are reminded to WEAR a CUP for their protection.
*** Wet shoes/boots will be left at the front door in order to keep the entrance way DRY
I really hope that your son will be able to participate in many of the workout sessions.
