OFFSEASON DEVELOPMENT

 

TC FAstpitch ACADEMY - pitching, Catching, Hitting

We are excited to announce that TC Fastpitch Academy is partnering with BFA to provide offseason development clinic sessions! These clinic sessions will be focused on pitching, catching and hitting.  Registration for a 3-week mini hitting session is now closed.

A 5-week session will start at the end of January and run up to evaluations. Registration for that will be shared in early December.

These clinics will first be offered to BFA families but if numbers are low they will be extended to local associations at a non-BFA subsidized rate.

 

OPEN GYM

All BFA families are encouraged to use open gym times. No BFA coaches or equipment will be provided, but this is a great opportunity to practice pitching, catching, fielding, throwing, etc.

More dates will be available starting in January, but for now we have Valley View Middle School Gym D reserved on Wednesday 12/1, 12/8 and 12/15 from 6-9pm.

All participants must follow posted COVID-19 requirements as dictated by Bloomington Public Schools.

 

Free sunday night clinics

Back by popular demand, BFA will again be offering free Sunday night clinics! These will start in January and be facilitated by BFA coaches. Watch for more information to come.

Domeball Tournaments

BFA has spots reserved at 4 Domeball Tournaments at the 10U and 12U level. Teams will be rostered on a first come first serve basis. In addition to ten total players we will need to fill the coaches, pitchers and catchers to register a team. Team practices will start approximately 3-weeks prior to each tournament and will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays. The tournaments are fun to play in and are great off season training opportunities for players and coaches. 

  • Turkey Trot: Friday 11/26, 4 game guarantee. $80 per player.
  • Winter Bash: Monday 12/27, 4 game guarantee. $80 per player. 12U only.
  • MLK Day: 1/17, 3 game guarantee. $70 per player.
  • President’s Day: 2/21, 3 game guarantee. $70 per player.

Dome Locations: Blaine, Rosemount, Holy Angels, or Minnetonka. Assigned when schedules are posted. Player registration will be collected on the first night of practice. 

Players and Coaches must use this Sign Up Genius to register for the Tournaments.  Don't delay practice for the first tournament starts soon. Sign up for one or all four! If we are unable to field a team when practices should start (3-weeks prior to the tournament) we will let those who have signup know and remove our team from the tournament.

Contact Amy with questions. Check the Development Tab for the latest in off season opportunities.
