We are partnered with top training facilities in the South Metro to offer focused instruction in hitting, defense, sports performance, pitching and catching. Our athletes prepare and work together in the off-season to play against the toughest competition in our region and in national tournaments. We offer year-round training, development and playing opportunities.

Off-Season Training

Waves players will have regularly scheduled training and development opportunities throughout the off-season. Team focused hitting sessions will take place at The Cages in Burnsville along with defensive practices & sports performance at the Savage Sports Dome weekly. Small group pitching will be held at Strike Zone Sports in Eagan, and catching sessions will be held regularly. Off-season training will be available from early November until the end of February with a brief holiday break at the end of December. Groups will be split by age level to provide more focused instruction along with multiple coaches being available to assist with training and development.

Hitting will focus on all phases of the swing, hitting philosophy, mechanics, increasing power, bunting, and maximizing each player's potential.

Defense sessions will be used to work on infield and outfield skills, sports performance/conditioning, along with base running and softball IQ.

Pitching will be in small groups with drills to help increase both speed & accuracy of pitches, develop spin, and maximize efficiency.

Catching will be taught in groups with focus on blocking, throwing, receiving, and fine tuning skills to build strong leaders behind the plate.

Waves will continue to offer additional hitting opportunities through the Breakfast Club along with discounted winter memberships at The Cages.
