Winter Training

2021 Winter Training

We had hoped that Winter Training would mark EGGS' return in early 2021 but the current state of COVID 19 in the area, restrictions on indoor gatherings and a lack of a usable facility have all combined to force us to cancel Winter Training for 2021. The EGGS Board is continuing to seek ways to get the girls instruction this winter and we will update you on opportunities we come up with as we go along. These may include instructional videos that we post to our website that the girls can follow at home or stand-alone clinics if facilities can be identified and restrictions on gatherings are loosened. These opportunities will remain fluid and we will keep everyone informed as we move forward.


We are happy to announce that winter training is back for the 2019 season!

This is a wonderful opportunity for the girls to get some extra training and instruction before the season starts. Work on fielding, hitting, throwing, catching and other skills during our practice sessions.

For those of you that helped coach/volunteer last year we would love to have you participate again. If you are interested in managing/coaching in the 2018 season, this is a great opportunity to join/lead/assist in the training as well. It is the perfect time to gain experience with the specific techniques that we will be teaching for fielding, throwing, hitting, and catching.

The training is run by volunteers so with each additional session added we will need at least 3 trainers/session.

If you are interested in helping, please sign up here:

We will have a volunteer session, Jan. 13, at 11:30 in the Elk Grove High School fieldhouse. A separate email will be sent to volunteers with more information once the list is final. Topics for the volunteer meeting include activities, age-based learning outcomes and the drill rubrics/drills we will use this year. We are also working on having support from high school girls as they complete community service hours for the Harper Promise Scholarship.

Sessions are on the following Sundays:

Dates 1:00 - 1:50 pm 2:00 - 3:30 pm 3:40 - 5:10 pm 5:20 - 6:50 pm
