OPEN TRaINING

Training in the fundamental skills of throwing, catching, fielding, and hitting are offered at different times during the year.

Training considers the whole person: body, heart, soul, and mind. Athletes learn what it means to Compete Upside Down© according TO the word of God, BY the power of God, and FOR the glory of God. Training is designed to provide the player with opportunities to mature physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially.

 

Open Training is offered on a DONATION basis. We believe everyone should give something, but it is up to each family to determine what they are willing and able to donate for the training.
