Our off-season will consist of three days of weight & conditioning with our strength coaches. We will make use of our hitting area in the Yates Field House to maintain swing rhythm and also spend time chipping and putting to make sure the short game remains intact. Hopefully our winter will be a short one and allow us to be outdoors in mid-February.
