The 9u Michigan Red Sox will take a more aggressive approach in 2018. Returning coaches Carl Smith and Les Smith will take the reigns along with Mark Sackett. We will encourage all players to participate in the Motor City Power Fall Baseball Program and then have a couple of get together workouts throughout the fall. We will begin with indoor training in November and December having practices once per week. After the holidays, we will begin practicing twice a week at the Michigan Red Sox Training Center and also participating in at least one dome tournament in the winter. Beginning in late February we will increase our practices to three times a week heading towards outdoors.
Our tournament season will begin in late March in Ohio or Indiana. By early April we expect to participate in tournaments every weekend through July 15, 2018.
Once our team is selected, we will have a parent meeting to present our out of state tournament and our season tournament schedule confirming weekends of participation. Due to the heavy tournament schedule, we will not be participating in league play but will look to add scrimmage games once per week.
Members of the Michigan Red Sox 9u team will include:
* Unlimited training center usage
* Discounted private instruction and camp rates
* Use of Teamsnap team communication
* Individual team website page
* 20 classes covering hitting, fielding, and agility training
* Uniform consisting of socks, pants, belt, three jerseys, pullover, hat, and helmet
Our projected costs for all participation will be approximately $1,500 for the season.
