What do Illinois Shockwave Players do in the off-season?

Softball is our first love and our players spend a good chunk of our midwestern winter indoors working on general strength and conditioning as well as their particular skills in hitting, fielding, pitching and catching.  As much as they enjoy these activities, they still have a need to experience competitive play, so many of them participate in other sports while they wait for the warmer temps to return.
