Since 1995, Mike Giardi has put together the Academy to give young ball players the opportunity to fine tune their skills under the guidance of professional and collegiate players and coaches. The players will learn how to improve their game through drill work that the staff has used throughout their playing and coaching careers. The Academy will feature different teaching tools including: Tee Work, Soft Toss Drills, Bunting Drills, Batting Cage Work, Sliding Drills on our Sliding Mat, Video Work with our Digital Camera. There will also be base-running work (players will be timed) and individual defensive work by position, including pitching work with the Radar gun.
All of these drills are designed to help improve a young player’s game while having fun.
Veterans Memorial Field House is perfectly suited for indoor baseball. Along with an All-Purpose Gym Floor which is surrounded by various Hitting Screens and Nets, there is also a separate Small Gym. There is also a full length Batting Cage located on the balcony as well as separate rooms for Weight Lifting and viewing films.
Only $150.00 for participants for 5 days of full instruction from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm.
All care and precaution will be given to each player by our on-staff trainer. All participants must provide health and immunization records when registering. The Hit Zone’s trainers are all certified and are qualified in CPR and First Aid.
