2018/19 SOMBA High Performance Winterball Program
The Winter High Performance Program (WHiPP) is back! After an amazingly successful pilot season in 2017/18, we have returned to the table with an even better program.
The WHiPP program is not just any winter baseball program. This advanced program is designed to give you the tools and platform to take your baseball to the next level as a competitive sports athlete. This season’s WHiPP is proud to announce the introduction of Clinic Sessions. Clinic Sessions are two hour sessions where we bring in a highly qualified skill specific coach to focus on the skills needed in areas like Hitting, Pitching, Catching, Middle Infield, Base Running and others.
Over a period of 16 weeks, we will be working offence, defense, conditioning and endurance. This program will provide you with all the tools, conditioning, coaching, and hunger to step on to the ball field next spring ready to compete at a whole new level!
Our focus will be on ALL
aspects of your development as an athlete. You will be training the Physical, Mental and Emotional aspects of competing at peak levels. The WHiPP program will push you to dig deep into your motivational tank and to drive yourself to unleash your true potential!
Every week of the program will include two 45min. Cross-fit sessions in a dedicated Cross-fit gym trained by highly qualified Cross-fit coaches who have developed a program with youth baseball as it’s foundation. In addition to that you will log two hours of indoor offensive training on Fridays and two hours of indoor defensive training on Sundays. Finally, you will have a home conditioning program designed utilizing the Canadian Long Term Athlete Development guidelines that you will follow. The players who are able to motivate themselves to do this self directed training will get the most gains this off season.
All of the training, clinics, and tools are included in ONE
registration cost. Space is limited, and this is not a first come first served program. Successful applicants must demonstrate interest in high performance and preference will be given to kids who have played in SOMBA’s summer programs. Ensure that you are able to attend a majority of the sessions as to not take away a spot for another player.
This is THE
program that sets the gold standard for off season baseball training in the Okanagan! It will be tough, it will be tiring, it will be challenging, and it will demonstrate, to you and others, that you are a force to be reckoned with!
Champions are made when no one is watching!
