Our final event of the series will be broken into two separate sessions. During the morning session we will have several drill stations set up on Timberline Ridge and the X-Ball field. Players will be able to float from drill to drill and focus on their individual needs and speak with the coach at each station. Our afternoon session will be a mock tournament for both woods ball players and tournament players. We will pick fair teams and each team will get a coach. Your team will walk the fields and develop codes with your coach. You will then play each team with your coach! Woods ball teams will only play woods ball teams and speedball teams will play only speedball teams. After this event we will again hold a meeting for interested players or teams who want more information on building teams. We will cover topics such as playing tournaments, how to manage your practices, team money, and of course sponsorship.
