Housed in a multi-training facility, Milford Sports Center's cadre of professional coaches oversees fitness classes and practice spaces for aspiring and accomplished athletes alike. Bat-wielding whippersnappers aged 6–18 perfect their technique under the guidance of former Red Sox catcher Rich Gedman and infielder for the Worcester Tornados Chris Colabello. Academy classes meet for 90 minutes each week to tackle hitting, base running, pitching, and infield and outfield defense, as well as core fundamentals such as gum chewing and Gatorade-cooler tipping.
For rhythmic workouts, men and women sculpt muscle and burn fat using interval and resistance training in one-hour Zumba classes, all to the vibrant beat of blood-pumping ditties. Guests who would rather hit airborne spheres than the dance floor may rent sessions in the center's four 70-foot batting cages or seven 48-foot batting cages. Each cage employs a high-performance pitching machine that accommodates all skill levels while keeping the trash-talking to a minimum.
Milford Sports Center
Housed in a multisport training facility, Milford Sports Center's cadre of professional coaches oversees fitness classes and practice spaces to help athletes groom their games of golf, baseball, and softball. Former Boston Red Sox catcher and two-time MLB All-Star Rich Gedman headlines the Center’s baseball program, which encompasses private and semiprivate lessons and an annual summer camp that teaches little leaguers the basics of hitting, base running, defense, and seed spitting. For more independent training, hitters can crack line drives in the Center’s 11 batting cages, which offer both softball- and baseball-pitching machines.
Piercing drives echo from the Center’s indoor golf-training facilities, where players hone their swings away from the threat of inclement weather or flash-mobbing water hazards. The Full Swing Golf simulator lets clubbers seek out pars on digital replicas of 64 world-famous courses, including Pebble Beach, Bay Harbor, and the Old Course at St. Andrews. Fitness trainers also guide guests through a circuit of up-tempo, rhythmic exercises in Zumba classes.
