Hi, everyone. I hope that everyone had a good summer and fall, and that winter is off to as positive a start as possible.
 
After a great deal of research and discussion, the RHS Baseball program is excited to offer the following workout program in the winter of 2022 leading up to the 2022 spring sports season:
 
- We have once again been able to secure space at both the Ridgefield Boys & Girls Club, as well as the Danbury Dome, which should provide the players with the opportunity to work on many aspects of their game in preparation for the new season. There will be ten weeks worth of activity beginning on January 1st and running through March 13th just prior to the start of RHS spring sports tryouts. The current plan is for all players to have an opportunity for 10 hitting-focused sessions and 10 fielding/pitching-focused sessions during this span of time.
 
- The current breakdown of time slots is as follows:
  
* Wednesdays - JR/SR hitting at RBGC from 8:30-10:00 PM
 
* Saturdays - FR/SO hitting at RBGC from 4:00-6:00 PM
 
* Sundays - all grades, throwing/fielding at Danbury Dome from either 8:00-9:00 AM or 9:00-10:00 AM
 
 
- There will be no sessions during the weekend of the February school break (2/16-20), but, weather-permitting, there will be events at both locations each weekend from early January to mid-March.
 
- We are fortunate to again have Kevin Briody agree to help run these baseball-related workouts, which should provide the players with a positive atmosphere and the opportunity to learn a great deal from his depth of knowledge. Kevin is likely to be aided by Christian Petersen, Tom Price, and other excellent coaches with ties to Ridgefield baseball, which should only serve to bolster the experience.
 
- We are also working to re-establish an approachable and inclusive fitness/strength-training regimen, with the hope of using the weight room(s) at RHS during the winter. We were planning to work with Tony Altobell prior to his switching jobs prior to this school year, so details are still up in the air right now. The aim is to build something that is approachable and inclusive for younger players who are new to these sorts of programs, while also being able to afford more experienced athletes a worthwhile workout experience. Those plans are still coming together, but I am hopeful that we can set up something that can be a beneficial mid-week event to bring the players closer together. Any fitness program held at RHS will be of no charge to players and anyone may attend whenever interested/available.
 
- The cost for the winter program is $300 per player, with checks being made out to “RHS Homerun Booster Club” and sent to 15 Ives Court Ridgefield, CT 06877. Additionally, payment can be sent via Venmo @HRBooster-21 if that is more convenient.
 
If your son has interest and/or if there are questions about the workouts, please reach out to Kevin Briody at 
If you have any questions regarding payment for the workouts, please reach out to the Booster Club at 
 
Just as if we were in the season itself, it is expected that all players adhere to any mask-related guidelines at the facilities we are utilizing. As we unfortunately know, Covid is still here and still contagious even after vaccination (particularly indoors), so mitigating against unnecessary risks remains very much a prudent decision that all players should take seriously.
 
 
There are two additional points that I do want to make clear. First is that this program is open for any RHS student who is interested in playing baseball this spring, whether they were in the program last year or not - including any and all interested freshmenSecond is that this off-season workout program is optional, not mandatory. While we are happy with the programs that we can afford the players, it is fully understandable if players are too busy with other sports, other workout programs, and/or just do not want to participate. There are no tangible or intangible “penalties” for not participating in off-season workouts, as their sole purpose is to offer a (hopefully) positive opportunity for improvement and learning to anyone who is interested.
 
Hopefully this email does a good job of laying out our winter workout program, but, as always, please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer.
 
Thank you.
Mike Scarlett
