We strongly believe the fall is not time to play as many games as you can but rather a time to build up and strengthen your individual game in a more controlled, coached up environment that is focused on repetition and educating our players on the mechanics of their swing, running, fielding and throwing form… We spent a few years in Fall Ball Leagues and quickly realized that we can be much more efficient and productive with the 3-4 hours that we used to spend on game action which included only 3 at bats and a few live balls hit to you for example. Our Fall Ball Program is a great opportunity for us to develop a relationship with players who will be with us for the 2022 season prior to our Winter Workouts, as well as being open to players who want to improve their game within a 6-week time frame.
Development once again is our main focus, so we will provide you with a ton of our Vikings coaches knowledge, as well as a great balance of instruction and evaluation. There will be a coach for every aspect of the game and positional coaches have been hired.
Weekday nights will be used to get our pitchers ready for the weekends simulated game action. (We are entering our 10th year with no major arm injuries to our players, we are proud of this as we are in the Tommy-John Era). We are all about building up our players arm strength and velocity, however we do it safely and effectively! We will also use Weekday nights Fall Ball Workouts to get a ton of positional work and fielding reps in as well as offensive reps and instruction that will include base running and swings.
Weekends will be used for morning positional work, extended I/O, and on field Batting Practice, then our simulated games. We will get game like reps and live action, and see how much our players can process and apply from our Weekday night practices.
Fall Ball will include an emphasis on the mental game, and is open to players who will be with us this Vikings season and those who did not make a team with us as well!
