2017 Winter Academy Training

Updated: December 4, 2016


NWSLL’s 2017 Winter Academy Training



New to this year, NWSLL has hired the professional instructors at BASE BY PROS for this offseason’s Winter Academy Training.  We are offering Hitting camps only through this program and have structured the sessions by age and division.  While the program will use baseballs, we absolutely welcome and encourage our softball players to enroll since the concepts taught will be relevant for all of our players.

In addition to giving players a “Rain Free” hour of indoor Hitting instruction each week, Winter Academy will also give Northwest’s players the opportunity to enter the spring season at a “game ready” level.

NOTE: We were not able to incorporate Pitching into the Academy Training curriculum this year.  We recommend pitchers looking for training to sign up for our one day Pitching clinic on Jan 21 (contact Coach Spankie at spankie_schmidt@hotmail.com to register), or look out for offerings from Baseball Positive, who will have Pitching clinics around the North Seattle area starting in January.


(Please note that this is not registration for Spring Ball.  It is Pre-season indoor training for 7-12 year old baseball and softball players.)

  • Who: The Winter Academy is open to all NWSLL baseball or softball players (aged 7-12)
  • Where:  The training will take place in small groups (max 12 per group) at the Boys & Girls Club of North Seattle (in Greenwood).
  • When: Training will be scheduled on Sundays in 1-HOUR time slots per below:
