The purpose of the Lions Baseball Club is to create continuity within our baseball program while playing a competitive schedule against challenging opponents. The focus will be placed on improving fundamentally, creating an environment to learn, and having a consistent opportunity to grow through regular practice time and game/tournaments.
The club will not take the place of the local recreational league.
The try-out process will begin in Fall 2017 for the 2018 season - players should plan to attend at least one of the two initial work-outs! If you are unable to attend, please notify the coaches as soon as possible.
The club will work directly with the high school and middle school staffs.
Practice planning will be structured after the high school practices.
The club will focus their game schedule mostly in June and July; the teams will not necessarily play every weekend (this will vary with each team and be at the coaches' discretion).
Players in the club will have the opportunity to work-out throughout the fall and winter months.
Players will be expected to play in the local recreational league unless approved by Coach Harpring.
