Winter Workouts at Harvard University are underway. The 13U and 14U Ruffnecks have been busy for several weeks, arriving between 5:30am and 6:00am for practices in the confines of “The Bubble” at Harvard. On Sunday, January 31st, the high school Winter Workouts for Ruffnecks 15U to 18U are set to begin. The HS version of Winter Workouts are focused on preparatory drill work, repetitions, and simply getting ready for the spring high school seasons. The 13U and 14U sessions provide a combination of drills and team preparation for the commencement of the Ruffnecks seasons in late March. For both groups of Ruffnecks players the Winter Workouts are important for player development.
Winter Workouts have been a staple of the Ruffnecks program for 8 years at Harvard. With space enough for two full sized diamonds, along with areas for additional station work, the Harvard Bubble provides a unique venue for Ruffnecks to conduct Winter Workouts. The early mornings, while inconvenient for sleep, enable players and coaches to get their work done with minimal disruptions for the rest of the day.
