Information Session 2019

SD42 Baseball Academy 2019

SD42 is hosting an information session on February 4th at 7:00pm in the Garibaldi school library. The meeting will cover details of the proposed baseball academy starting in September 2019.

This program will be recognized towards school credits with a teacher present at all times to oversee the program, including providing grades for each student. Classes will run approximately 2-½ hours during the school day and will take the place of the PE credit. Transportation will be included to and from the school to the off-site practice facilities each time the students leave the school.

  • Players DO NOT have to be Garibaldi students. They can attend any high school in the district.
  • The academy is for all interested players of any skill range from grades 8 to 12 as of September 2019 and is not a travel program.
  • This is NOT a program geared only towards competitive players.
  • The academy will cover on-field skills instruction, classroom instruction, fitness and conditioning and mental skills.
  • The academy will run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and alternating Fridays.
  • The fee for the academy is $250 per month with no additional charges. This cost is similar to other school academy programs currently offered in the Lower Mainland.
  • Players will receive 2 shirts, a hat and a sweatshirt but will need to provide their own ball gear (gloves, bats, etc.).

We encourage you to attend the meeting if your player is entering grades 8 – 12 in September 2019 and loves baseball.

The instructors are Fred Sabatine and Dan Marshall from the Bullpen baseball and softball school and are well known within the baseball community. They have extensive experience working with players of all skill levels from 8 years old to college players. These instructors, as well as the Garibaldi academy teacher and school administrators, will be at the meeting on February 4th to give full details on the program as well as answer any questions. Players do not have to be at the meeting.  Fred can be reached at 604-644-6566 or if you have questions to ask before the meeting.
