I would like to practice my skills in Overwatch. Do you have to be online in order to play in training mode?

No, you need to connect to the servers to authenticate. Launching Overwatch without an internet connection just repeatedly fails to connect to Battle.net.

    This answer should be updated now that Overwatch has officially launched. The sentence "there aren't any servers online to connect to" hasn't been true for nearly a year now.
