Parents and Players:
The Dayton Classics family has been through some difficult issues over the last two weeks; Mason Straley (17U)and former Classics Lance Straley and current admin assistant, Desi lost Desi’s father Bob Kinder after a battle with cancer. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers; Jerry Cheatwood, suffered some serious chest pains this week and underwent surgery; John (17u), Jerry and Stacey would appreciate your prayers for a full and fast recovery.
Additionally, I have had some minor surgery and will be having some additional surgery and out of commission November 3-6.
So, please forgive my delay in getting this schedule out to you but the surgery schedule has been more fluid than I thought it would (thus bouncing my uncertainty and floating my availability) and we have now set up a secondary email source to handle any future emergencies.
As a result of both football and the late notice of the schedule, I will certainly understand if you cannot make your session as marked. Thus, please adhere to the schedule as attached if possible. IF you need to come at another time, please go ahead and do so. We have the room and can make an adjustment.
The UD training will be on November 2, 9,16,23 and Dec 7. SEE ATTACHED SCHEDULE.
Regarding the Velocity and Explosive Hitting programs, we will begin the Explosive Hitting Program Monday November 3rd. Brain and I have reviewed everything and he is more than prepared to handle the first week on his own. We will begin the velocity program on Monday November 10 to make certain we have the proper oversight and training.
I originally tried to give everyone the opportunity to provide me times and then have us place folks in those times. This did not work very well.
Thus, here is our intended schedule of events. You may sign up for them (all three days a week or just two) at the UD TrainingSunday:
M/W/Sat 5:30-6:45 M/W and 10-11am Sat Explosive Hitting
M/W/Sat 6:45-8:00 M/W and 11-12 am Sat Velocity Training
M/W 8-8:45 Strength and Conditioning
Tue/Thur/Fri 5:30-6:45 Velocity Training
Tue/Thur/Fri 6:45-8:00 Explosive Hitting
Tue/Thur 7-7:45 Strength and Conditioning
Tue/Thur 8-8:45 Strength and Conditioning
Sunday UD Training as attached.
Infield Play as requested (we will work with those interested to find a time to make it happen).
We reserve the right to consolidate if necessary but will do all in our power to provide each of you with the opportunities and training to make great improvement during this winter. The winter is all about making improvements. Take advantage of as much as possible when considering your other obligations (I am sure that it looks like we don’t think you have any……we respect all of them, but still want to make the most available to all as possible).
I will see you Sunday and look forward to signing you up personally for your training times. Good luck to all those players who will be moving on to play in the play-offs.
Please remember the Cheat woods and Straleys’ in your thoughts and prayers.
