Winter Skills workouts
There is a winter workout being offered to children from the ages 8 to 12 and also the upcoming Junior Baseball. We are also opening up to younger ladies 8-12. They will have to practice with baseballs. The practices will be from 10:00 am to 11:45 am. We have already started but it's never too late to start. We will end on Sunday March 31st as Southside's regular season will start soon after. The cost will be $8.00 a child per practice. If you have any questions you can contact Coach Steve Germann via text or phone at 574-302-0326 or Coach Mike Grenert via text or phone at 574-339-3206.
