Fall baseball workouts have begun! As we told the players at the baseball meeting, we are practicing on the field at 3:30 every Monday/Wednesday/Thursday. Players need to have practice pants, an Arvada West t-shirt and Arvada West hat (if they have one). I do have some purple baseball hats that players can buy for $15 if they need one. We are focusing on hitting right now and then will shift to defensive skills for 3 weeks and then combination/insertion for 2 weeks for a total of 8 weeks. As long as the weather is good, we will be outside so they should be prepared with sweat pants and sweatshirt as it gets colder outside. After this 8 weeks, we will have a week off and then begin weight room/plyometrics and pitching workouts.
Also, the district is going to a new platform to register athletes. It is called Arbiter Athlete. Anyone that is not playing either a fall or winter sport and is planning on playing baseball in the spring needs to get on Arbiter Athlete and create an account. The instructions for this are posted below. The registration for this will only need to be done once during their high school careers.
