Offseason Training

During the off season there are many options available to players who want to play dome softball or stay sharp on their skills and training. Below are some resources for coaches, parents and players.

Indoor Dome Softball

Fastpitch leagues and tournaments are available at several local dome facilities at various times throughout the winter. If you form a team, you can enter these tournaments and/or leagues (cost is the responsibility of the team). This is for LFSA players only. Please partner with other LFSA teams if two teams want to play, but don't have enough players.


Indoor Batting Cages

We have partnered with The Cages in Burnsville to offer a discount and donation to LFSA for fall/winter memberships. Below are the details:

Memberships run from Labor Day through February 28th. The membership allows users 1 hour of cage rental per day. All members will get an online username and password and can schedule cage reservations online. They have 2 jugs fastpitch machines with machine balls plus 11" and 12" real softballs for use.

Standard Winter Membership Pricing:
    $310 for individual membership
    $420 for family membership 

LFSA Membership Pricing ($10 Discount):
    $300 for individual membership
    $410 for family membership

If we get 20 or more LFSA memberships this year at The Cages, they will donate $30 per membership to LFSA. This is a great way to help support our program and get off season training space!

You can either go online to make the purchase or visit The Cages. If you purchase online, the promo code is LFSA! and that will take $10 off of the price and allow us to easily track how many memberships our players purchase. They are available for purchase now and players can start using their membership right away!

To start your membership, visit www.thecages.us.

  • On the homepage, click the Memberships link or go to the Pricing tab and select "Click Here for Online Store".
  • Select "Memberships" from the drop down. You will see theLFSA Membership options.
  • Select the desired option and enter the promo code (LFSA!) for $10 discount at checkout. 

Pitching Instruction

We have partnered with Sara Moulton, former Minnesota Gopher All-American and Professional Fastpitch player, on our pitching clinics and lessons for LFSA players and families.  Her indoor facility - Strike Zone Sports (SZS) - is located in Eagan, MN. Below are some of the options for private and group instruction:

$70/hour for a 1 on 1 lesson
$80/hour for a 2 on 1 lesson* (2 lanes used)
$90/hour for a 3 on 1 mini clinic* (3 lanes used)
Lane rental: $10/half hour and $20/hour

*If you plan to take advantage of a 2 on 1 or a 3 on 1 lesson, SZS needs to be informed prior to the lesson to ensure the space is available.
