Strathmore AB, –
From January 13th – March 9th the VAB kicked off the inaugural Strathmore Minor Baseball (SMBA) Winter Camp under VAB Instruction. Every Friday three VAB players along with assistant coach, Zane Anderson and Strathmore Reds coach/player Cody Bangen helped teach the young players of the Strathmore region valuable baseball skills. The Camp consisted of approximately 60 kids, broken up into three age groups. Pitching and hitting was the primary focus of the camp. Infielding, outfielding, catching, and base running were also covered during the eight-week camp.
We would like to send our appreciation to the Strathmore Minor Ball Association for allowing the VAB the opportunity to run the camp. The camp wouldn’t have been possible without SMBA’s president Daren Kennett spearheading the project. We are excited for the continued SMBA & VAB relationship, committed to improving the grassroots baseball system in the Strathmore region.
