GMBL and The Blue & Gray Fastpitch program will have free Open Workouts starting this Saturday 11/08 on Field 3 at 1:00 PM @GMBL. This is open to all 12/14U (10u on field 4 1PM) Players who plan on registering in GMBL for the upcoming Spring 2015 season. We will have open workouts until the weather gets too cold, then we will go indoors.
Indoor winter workouts will begin the first week of December (12/6) at the Battlefield SportsPlex in Manassas, VA. Currently we are scheduled to practice every Saturday @ 3:30-4:30 PM (10u) 4:30-6:30PM (12/14u) for 12 weeks. There is a fee for the rental of the indoor space plus cost for training aids. The cost will be approx ~ $100 per player for 12 weeks of training. Last year we practiced indoors with 24 girls. Information about the complex is listed below. Please note, that these workouts are open to any child who plans on registering for the GMBL 10/12/14U Spring 2015 softball season.
For those who are interested in participating in the Indoor winter workouts, please reply to this email so I can get a count of number of girls interested. These workouts will give your little girl a great advantage over the others who don't work in the off season. Spots will be limited so please respond promptly. If I don't hear from you, I will assume that you are not interested.
Lastly, if you have any interest in the 10/12/14u Blue and Gray Tournament program for next Spring, I strongly suggest that you register your child for the winter workouts. Even though participation in the workouts doesn't guarantee you a spot on the Blue & Gray last year 12 out of 13 girls who made one of our teams participated in the winter workouts. The process of making the Tournament team starts now in the off season, not 2 weeks before tryouts.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at anytime.

This fall GMBL will begin fundraising efforts to raise money for the installation of lights on field 4. The quote from Musco lighting is just over $100,000, however, if we can raise half, we can then submit an application to Major League Baseball and hopefully, receive a grant for the remainder. We will post the status of our fundraising efforts and update it weekly.
