It is that time of year again in Lethbridge. The summer has gone by so quickly, and the fall is just around the corner. That means it is time for PBA to kick off another season, and the quest to win their 8th straight CCBC Championship in 2018. Last year’s walk-off win in extra innings against Thompson Rivers University was yet another amazing moment to add to the memory bank during this incredible streak.
This year the Prairie Baseball Academy will kick things off on September 4th (Labour Day Monday). Registration will take place from 10:00-11:00am at the indoor facility at Lloyd Nolan Yard (545 6th Ave N, Lethbridge, AB). Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend, but do not have to be there. All players will fill out the necessary paperwork, and get sized for apparel. PBA started a partnership with Under Armour this Spring, and we are looking forward to getting new top of the line Under Armour apparel in 2018.
We ask that all recruits bring their fall payment on day 1. The cost for the fall is $3108, which includes GST. Families can pay by cheque (made out to Prairie Baseball Academy), credit card or debit. The cost covers the entire fall tryout which includes: on field from Sep 4 - Oct 31, strength and conditioning program from Nov 7 - Dec 15, and all fall PBA apparel.
After registration all new and returning PBA players will take the field for our opening day workout. The coaching staff runs day 1 like a showcase. Every player will get a chance to showcase their skills in the following areas: 60 YD Dash, infield ground balls w/ throws, outfield w/ throws, live batting practice and live bullpens. The coaching staff expects all players to show up in shape, and ready to compete on day 1.
After the workout, there will be a BBQ for all players. The day usually wraps up around 5:00pm. If you have any questions or concerns about this fall please do not hesitate to contact the Prairie Baseball Academy at [email protected] or at 403-320-1302.
