Knights Winter Development 2024

Our exciting winter programs for young baseball players are returning for 2024: Knights Under Lights and Knights Winter Smash.

The aim of these programs is to provide opportunities for players to keep playing baseball during the winter off season and develop foundational skills, increase overall baseball knowledge, situational awareness and passion for the game in time for next summer!

This year we’ve made some slight tweaks to both programs to make them even better and even more accessible to our junior players!
