There will be 4 dates in January (7th, 14th, 21st, 28th) in which there will be Five 30-minute sessions per date with up to 6 players per session. A player signs up for each date and time slot separately and independently. Think of it like you are going to a batting cage and paying $10 for 30 minutes except with added value of having several coaches, individualized instruction, and different hitting stations such as l
ive ball hitting cages, tee hitting station, short toss hitting, and rapid toss hitting. 
  Each
 player will progress through several hitting stations throughout the 30 minute session to advance their hitting strategy, mechanics, and performance. There will be one player per station for safety reasons. Players are required to wear sneakers (no cleats), bring their own helmet and bat (if they own them) otherwise they will be provided. Due to the well-defined schedule, we will require all participants to be on time for their session.
