THE TERRIER SCHEDULE
Fall Schedule - King's Christian Collegiate
At the start of the season, The Terrier teams practice at King's Christian Collegiate turf field. There are also local exhibition games and travel weekend games within Canada and to the U.S. These trips for the senior teams not only provide an opportunity for players to bond with their new teammates, but also showcase the talents of appropriate aged Terriers against U.S. colleges.
Extended Fall - The Baseball Zone
In October, all Terriers are tested by The Performance Lab
for strength and functionality, with their individual results analyzed by leading edge bio-mechanists. Using the latest techniques in sports science, these results are translated to individual strength programs to better protect the athlete from injury and maximize their functional power output. The months of November and December are when Terriers lay their foundation of strength to support the intense program that is scheduled for them for the rest of the year. The Sports Specific Training facility (SST
) at The Baseball Zone is available Mon-Sat for all Terriers to train.
Winter Program - The Baseball Zone
The winter program, beginning in mid January, consists of comprehensive instructional workouts in all aspects of the game. In addition to teaching detailed hitting mechanics, the Terriers staff, with over 100 years of combined experience, focuses on pitching, catching and defensive techniques. Athletes continue to build on their strength.
March Break - Florida
One of the highlights of The Terriers travel schedule is our annual spring trip to Florida. All four Terriers teams fly (not bus) to Florida for 8 days during March Break. This week in the south will consist of practices, games versus U.S. high school age programs and U.S. College teams (18U). The players are supervised with all travel, accommodations and meals included. Players' families often coordinate their vacation with the team's schedule, but are certainly not required to accompany their player.
Spring Schedule - CPBL
Spring is a time to put the winter training to the test. We practice outdoors and play league games at our state-of-the-art $1.7M turf field. Our artificial turf allows us the luxury of heading outside before any other organization. The Premier Baseball League of Ontario (CPBL
) boasts the highest number of players graduated and moved on to post secondary schools as student-athletes by comparison to any other league in Ontario. League games begin in Late April and continue through late June, wrapping up with the playoff championships at the end of July.
Summer Schedule - US Tournaments
Once high school exams are complete and players have maintained a minimum of 70%, we begin our highly competitive summer schedule. The Terriers attend tournaments in the U.S. that provide players with maximum exposure to College Coaches, recruiters and professional scouts. Players have the opportunity to compete against the Top Baseball Programs in North America, and showcase their talents. Not unlike our Florida trip, the teams stay at trademark hotels with travel, accommodation and meals included.
