Whalley Little League will also be offering the following Winter Training opportunities...
Option 3.) For returning 2022 Major Division players AND prospective Major Division Players, we will be recruiting 24 players to replace the players who graduated from the Major Division in 2022. Prospective players should contact the team manager to arrange attendance at these practices. (for those players returning to the Major Dodgers, we are in the process of finalizing a new Head Coach).
These practices are included with registration. Watch this space for manager contacts to be posted once practice times for all teams have been confirmed.
Option 4.) Age group clinics will be available for interested coaches to hold open practices organized by age group. Interested coaches should contact Mark Deshane firstname.lastname@example.org. These age group clinics will be offered through teamsnap to registered players.
