The Winter Workout programs are Westport Advanced Baseball's "pre-season" so it is highly recommend that any player wanting to play baseball in the spring sign up.The Clinics represent a terrific opportunity for all players to get back into baseball shape with their teammates and classmates before the start of the spring season, honing their fundamental skills under the watchful eye of professional coaches. Our primary instructors this winter, Jeff Love, Matt Hennessey, Jeb Backus, and Scott Carew are all extremely experienced coaches/instructors and in some cases have even played professionally. The 10 session clinics will be maintaining a player coach ratio throughout all the programs (with the exception of the pitching and catching programs) of no more than 5 players to one coach to insure that the maximum amount of instruction is taking place. Hitting clinics are split into two groups each for one hour with stations set up to maximize what each player gets out of the session. This will give a player an opportunity to get their skills and body back in shape before tryouts. This is especially true of players wanting to pitch. Large portion of the clinics are dedicated to throwing starting because it is essential that all pitchers get their arms in shape prior to season to avoid injury.
