Note from Coach Perleberg.....We are excited to offer another session of the Riders Baseball Academy which will run for 5 weeks (practice twice a week). New to this year, we’ve decided to go twice a week to better retain the information that they are learning. So your child will receive 10 practices, instead of the 8 in the past. New to this year we’ve also added a catchers session. We’ve again put together a great staff for your child to receive lessons from. This is a great opportunity for your child to receive quality instruction right here in Gillette. I urge you to sign up today as spots will fill up fast.  Contact Coach Perleberg at nperleberg@ccsd.k12.wy.us or text 307-689-4542 to sign up.
