Winter Workouts at Kennedy & Jefferson

UPDATES:

1. Please note that ALL Jefferson 10-13 Workout times have moved to a 6:30 start including this evening!

2. Please arrive no sooner than 10 minutes prior to start times for all sessions and plan to pick-up/leave immediately following the end of the session to minimize contact with other activities and groups.

3. We are actively revising the sign-up sheets for players that are scheduled for more than 50% of the sessions.  Check the sign up sheets periodically for new openings over the next few days.  Remember that you can sign up for additional workouts within 48 hours of the start time if there are still openings available.

4. For 9u players only: We are trying to set up a special offseason workout session(s) on March 10th from 6-9pm.  Details are still in the works. Please hold this time on your calendar if you would like to attend.

ORIGINAL MESSAGE:

BTBA has organized FREE Winter work-out sesions for Bloomington baseball players in conjunction with the Kennedy and Jefferson High School baseball programs.  To comply with COVID-19 safety restrictions, both locations will be DROP-OFF ONLY at the respective activity centers. Parents are not allowed inside, and players/coaching staff are required to wear masks at all times inside the building. Please bring your own mask and communicate these guidelines to your players in advance to ensure everyone is aware of our safety protocols.  

There will be two programs at each location - one for Ages 9-13 and one for Ages 14-18.  These programs will be limited to 25 players at Kennedy and 22 players at Jefferson in order to keep the players appropriately distanced. Please try to attend the location closest to your side of town (East Bloomington families should attend Kennedy and West Bloomington should attend Jefferson).  Grouping by geography provides an extra layer of safety by limiting contact points and maximizes the number of players that we can include in these sessions.  Refer to the listed times and dates for each session at the bottom of this message.

Participants must also sign up in advance using the links below.  No walk ups allowed. Given limited space, we are asking that no player sign up for more than 50% of the events at this time AND only sign up for events that you truly plan to attend. Please be considerate of the entire Bloomington community.  If the sign-up list is still not full within 48 hours of the session, you may then sign up for additional workouts beyond 50%. If your player is not feeling well or shows any symptoms, please keep them home to protect others.  If they cannot attend due to illness or other factors, please be sure to delete your signup as soon as possible to free up that space for another player.  

Stay tuned to our BTBA.org website or our Facebook page for further updates or changes.

BTBA Offering New 9u Program for 2021

Due to popular demand, BTBA will be offering a new age level for 2021!  We have historically fielded teams for 10u through 15u teams.  New this year, we will be offering registration for the 9u age group as well!  This age level consists of only 9AAA and 9AA teams (there is no 9A program).  Like other BTBA teams, placement will be determined following official tryouts.  We are also planning to host home 9AA and 9AAA tournaments.  Look for more information and registration details coming soon.

Winter Workouts

As we prepare for the 2021 season, BTBA wants to provide you with some information regarding availability of winter workouts.  Historically, we have promoted free winter workouts at the Jefferson and Kennedy High School Activity Centers.  Those discussions are taking place, but numerous details are still being finalized.  There are obviously new considerations this year to facilitate social distancing and prioritize player safety.  We will send out additional communications as soon as plans are finalized.

There are also numerous paid training/workout opportunities available through other organizations.  Some examples of these are listed below along with links to their sites for more information.
