Re-opening procedures 

An advanced reservation is required for all participants.  When making a reservation, please reserve a slot for all individuals who will be in the building, even if they won't be using the batting cages. (No one will be allowed in the building or allowed to bat if they do not have a reservation.) That means a parent will also need to reserve a slot for themselves if they wish to remain in the building while a player is using the cages. This is to ensure we don't go over maximum capacity and to allow for social distancing. Each reservation is for a 45 minute session. The last 15 minutes of the hour is saved for staff to clean equipment between sessions.


Reservations will be accepted for Thursday - Sunday from 12-6pm.
