3rd Annual Innisfail Winter Baseball Camp

About the Innisfail Winter Baseball Camp:

The Innisfail Winter Baseball Camp is open to all skill levels of participants aged Mosquito to Midget.

The Camp will run on Sundays beginning January 13, 2019 and ending on March 24, 2019. There will be two - 2 hour sessions; the first session will run from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, and the second session will run from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. A third session may be added depending registration numbers, and the times may be slightly adjusted if that is the case.

The 2-hour session that your child will be assigned to will be determined after the registrations are in, but the intention is for the younger kids to attend the earlier session, and the older kids attend the later session.

All of the sessions will be at the Springbrook Multiplex Gymnasium in Springbrook, AB. Each session will have 20 to 30 kids divided into 3 working groups. All baseball skills will be covered over the sessions.
