Crimson Softball Fall Pitching/Catching and Hitting Clinic Series
This fastpitch clinic series is for girls of all ages and abilities who are interested in learning and developing the skill and proper technique of pitching, catching and/or hitting. We have structured the clinic to accommodate athletes by age and ability. We will make sure that each student is placed in the proper group.
Beginning pitchers will learn the proper technique of the fastpitch motion. Intermediate level pitchers will focus on control and speed development along with learning the change-up and curve pitches. Advanced pitchers will continue to work on pitches they currently throw, as well as learn new pitches. Pitchers need to bring someone who can catch for them.Please Pay: NCAA Rules require us to charge a nominal fee ($10.00) for any pitcher who brings a high school -aged individual to act as their personal catcher. This $10.00 fee is not a payment to hire a catcher for the clinic sessions, it is a fee we have to collect if you bring a high school student as your catcher. Please pay this fee during registration check-out on-line, or in person at the clinic.
Catchers will work on improving their skills (including set-ups, blocking, and throwing to bases) through supervised drills and teaching sessions.
Every catcher must have their own set of catching gear.Hitters
Hitters will begin by working on the fundamentals of hitting, which will progress during the course of the clinic.Attention: Please check the box(es) on the registration page for the session(s) that you will be attending. Cost: The cost of the clinic series is $250.00 for a single (five week) session, $350.00 for two sessions (the cost includes a 7%, non-refundable registration fee). Space is limited, so please register early.
