Fall Baseball - Mounts Hardball Academy
Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Mounts Hardball Academy

Focus: Instructional training on hitting, position specific, and in-game situational training. This year, we are planning to have instructional training on Tuesdays and Thursdays, along with friendly scrimmages and additional instruction on Saturdays.

Instruction: Experienced coaches with over 100+ years of coaching will lead the academy sessions. This is also a great time for those interested in coaching and are looking to learn before taking the head coach role.   

Season Cancellation:  If Ephrata schools close to in-person attendance or if PIAA cancels the falls sports season, the Hardball Academy will be cancelled as well. 

Covid Questionnaire: A very brief questionnaire will be completed by parent prior to each practice/game. This is to minimize the risk of exposure for all players and coaches.

Proof of Health Insurance is required – Insurance waiver will need to be signed by parent.
