This is a key learning area because the next step is senior baseball and we need to make sure that our players are adequately prepared. At this age VOB usually encourages the players to train with seniors so that the step up to senior baseball is not so great.
By this stage we expect our players to have solid fundamentals because the game becomes very competitive now.
This group is now being pushed a bit more as the weeks go and the intensity will probably continue to increase as they learn more and more advanced skills.
After winning the league last season, the expectation for this group will be huge. The players are guided by coaches Andrew Ball (head coach) and Zubair Larney assists him. We had three players (Lance Gordon, Luke November and Brady Conradie) from last years team represent SA recently at the u18 World Cup and hope to see many more follow suit.
