What do you mean up to "4x week" workouts and player development sessions?
Participants have the opportunity to attend four weekly player development and training sessions each week. The "baseline" participation is one indoor training session (1.5hrs on Tues or Thurs) and one field workout (1+hr) each week. Additional or optional workshops are hosted throughout the week (ex: Mon and Sat) allowing players who have the desire (and time) to participate in up to four sessions per week (see FAQ question/answer below). All workouts have multiple hands on coaches ensuring the coach to player ratio is optimal, ensuring that instructional topics are communicated effectively, and ensuring max reps obtained. There are no unsupervised activities. Indoor training sessions are split into multiple training and player development workshops: Swingtherapy (working on becoming a better hitter), Arm Care (thera-band program), Throwing Dynamics (throw hard, more accurate, pain free), Pitchers boot camp (advanced instruction and weekly bull pen sessions; results charted), Defensive drills, Catching drills. Field workouts are broken into four components: supervised active warm up, supervised long toss program (minimum 10 min), supervised position specific skills/drills/fundamentals, reps (fungo).

Please provide information on the Game Day component included in winter "Home Run" package (winter league games)
The Baseball Solutions winter league is a six game series targeted for upperclassman; winter World Series is a separate six game series targeted for underclassman. Game are schedule on Sunday's in November (off for Thanksgiving weekend) and the first two Sunday's in December (ending prior to Christmas break). These games are some of the most competitive and productive games played during the off season. Players are divided onto one of three winter league teams or one of three World Series teams (often by same high school or north/south high schools). Games are 8 innings in length with official high school/UIL umpires calling balls and strikes. Real baseball providing invaluable game reps, live action, live at-bats and game speed environment. These games are an extension of the fall tournament/showcase schedule for some; for others (football players), they are the first game action they have seen since the conclusion of summer ball. Pitchers are limited to 15-25 pitches (1-2 innings max); innings are capped at 3 runs (three runs score, switch sides). Playing time is a premium with rosters set at 10-11 players. Various innings during the games will begin with runners on base providing extra pressure and optimal environment for the defense, offense, and pitchers to work on all areas of their game *game hat/jersey purchased for $40.
