IMPORTANT - We ask that you carry your shoes in with you that you plan on wearing on the turf. This will prolong the life of the turf. There is an area when you walk in where you can change into your shoes before entering.  This goes for players and parents. Thank you for respecting the space!

We will have limited times in the batting cages and the pitching/catching cages. You will need to sign up for the cages when you show up. It is first come first serve. There will be a time limit of 20 minutes in the batting cage and 40 minutes in the pitching/catching cage. 

We will have consistent hours throughout the Winter. You can find those times on our calendar. For the most part, we will be open from 6-8pm on Tuesdays/Thursdays and then 10a-1pm on Saturdays and Sundays noon-3pm. (January we will not be open on Tuesdays)

We are very excited about this opportunity and we look forward to seeing you all at the PIT (Peppers Indoor Training) facility!
