Off Season Training


Off Season Training Schedule

  • Off-season training will take place November 2017-March 2018.
  • Training days are Tuesday, Friday and Saturday's.
  • Training will take place at multiple facilities including Trade Wins Sports in Forest Lake, the Stillwater Dome, the National Sports Center and Forest Lake High School.
  • MN Alliance softball players will need to plan to participate in at least one training session per week (excluding holidays).
  • The cost for training is included in player participation fees.
  • MN Alliance players will train together with their team as well as with other athletes in the program. However, when schedule conflicts arise, players may join another group.  There will be sign up opportunities posted on the website so coaches are aware of the players participating each week and may prepare an appropriate practice plan.
