Florida Spring Training:
Each year, our Royals teams travel to Florida during March Break to take part in our Ontario Royals Spring Training trip. For the past two years, the program has travelled to Sanford, FL, and based our training out of the BOOMBAH Sports Complex - a 16-diamond complex which boasts beautiful turf fields and 16 outdoor batting cage tunnels.
Our Royals players spend the week fully-immersed in baseball - practicing and playing every day. Our players earn valuable on-field reps during March that many programs located in cold climates simply cannot get.
The focus of the week is overall player development through intensive and specific practices, and playing high-level competition. We also want to make sure we keep the game fun for our players - and while we put in a lot of hard work during this trip, we also make sure it's a memorable experience off the field.
As part of the Royals Spring Training trip our players attend an MLB Spring Training game, as well as a NCAA Baseball game, and a NJCAA Baseball game. This offers players not only the opportunity to see the levels at which they aspire to play, but also an opportunity to have some fun off the diamond with their teammates and friends.
Lastly, our Florida Spring Training trip can offer valuable exposure to our Royals players who are interested in pursuing US College opportunities. During our March trip each year, hundreds of US College/University programs play alongside us, which provides our players and coaches with direct access to recruitment opportunities.
Each age-level team participates in multiple US Tournaments each year - many of which are based out of major universities and provide top-level competition and exposure opportunities for our Royals players.
While we're uncertain of what our Spring 2021 Trip will look like due to the ongoing health crisis, we look forward to continuing to offer fantastic travel experience for our Royals players.
