Keep your skills sharp with our monthly clinics. Though not always easy, baseball is a simple game. The key to experiencing success is to be good at the simple things, and you can never work on them enough. In these clinics, the main aspects of playing and the fundamentals of each will be covered, giving players the opportunity to consistently hone their skills throughout the winter.
Get ready to mash! Four hitting sessions over the course of a month. Sessions will begin with fundamental instruction followed by rounds of batting practice and cage games. There will be a focus on making hitting fun, what to think, and how to compete at the plate. Players will receive lots of reps! Players of ages 8-12 are welcome.
Sessions are an hour long and will be held once a week over the course of the month.

Throwing, fielding, pitching, and hitting. Four things that, when confident doing them, will help any ball player stay on the field. Receive lots of reps in all four aspects in our monthly skills clinic. Players of ages 8-12 are welcome.
Sessions are an hour long and will be held once a week over the course of the month. The structure of each session will be as follows:
5 minutes: warm-up
Quick, high intensity warm-up to get the body loose for the session.
15 minutes: throwing
One of the most important parts of the game and yet often overlooked. We will discuss and drill the proper mechanics and mindset to establish confidence in throwing.
40 minutes: fielding/hitting/pitching
40 minutes will be dedicated to one of these three topics each week. Receive both fundamental and advanced instruction on how to be an efficient fielder, a more confident hitter, and a pitcher who throws strikes.
