The first practice session took place on Tuesday morning. Pitching and catching were the main focus along with positional play. During the first part of the session pitching Coach Nicole Thomas was responsible for the pitchers, Lorena Oreščanin was responsible for the catchers, while the other coaches conducted drills intended to improve throwing and catching for the rest of the players.
For the second part of the session coaches Stanley Doney, Lisa Maulden, Charles Attard, Lars Looyen, and Joseph Scicluna conducted a session for the middle infielders. This turned out to be a very good session with the players performing really well. Nicole Thomas and Lorena Oreščanin took the corners, 1st base and 3rd base players to Field B where they did position specific drills. Cindy Blüm and Eveline van Dongen worked with the outfielders. The consensus among the coaches after the first session was that they were impressed by the level of the players of each of the three clubs.
