There will be several practices during the month of September. These practices will be used to get to know each other as a team and set up the Whitecaps Way.
Starting in October, a flexible, focused Off-Season Training Program will be offered to all Whitecaps players and is open to the general public. Sessions include training in pitching, hitting, catching and overall athletic conditioning. Whitecaps player fees do not include this program, but Whitecaps players will receive a discounted rate on their sessions. This program is not required for players, but coaches strongly recommend participation, as the players who participate have a baseball-ready edge once team practices begin in January.
There will be weekly indoor practices as well as remote Zoom sessions starting in January. Practices will move outdoors when weather allows, typically in late-March or April. The head coaches of each team will lead these practices.
Our practices will move outdoors as soon as the weather and field conditions permit. We will practice, scrimmage or play a league game at least 2 times per week. This will help us focus on the development of the player’s skills by using mass repetitions during practices, while gaining important situational game play experience as well.
League Play: Games are during the week and may or may not take the place of a practice day.
Tournaments: We will sign up for 5 – 8 tournaments per team depending on teams’ overall schedules.
The season will typically end in the middle of July. Please plan camps and vacations after the 20th of July.
