Keep your skills sharp with our monthly clinics. Though not always easy, baseball & softball are simple games. 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 baseball & softball players the opportunity to consistently hone their skills throughout the fall and 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 competitive 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 8-14 are welcome.
Sessions are an hour long and will be held once a week over the course of a month.
