COST $60

Check in begins at 7:30 and the clinic will begin promptly at 8:00. Please arrive in plenty of time to check-in and get things unpacked. If players can place all of their gear in an equipment bag, it will make moving from station to station a little easier.

Players are expected to be dressed appropriately in athletic clothing and cleats and bring the following:

Glove – Helmet – Bat – Equipment Bag – Mouth Guard (to be worn entire clinic) – Plenty of Water

It is important to label all of your child’s gear (including water bottles and hats/visors).

Please keep in mind that after the clinic begins, parents will not be permitted on the fields or in the dug-outs.

Groups will not be changed. Please inform your player that there is a possibility that she will be in a group other than with her teammates or friends.

If you are needing to purchase a bat for your player and are unaware of how to properly do so, please keep the following in mind:

The bat should be marked as a fast pitch softball bat. To determine length to buy, have player stand with bat at their side. The handle of their bat should reach no lower than the inside of their wrist and no higher than 2 inches above the wrist. Most bats at this level are weighted appropriately.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. See you at the field!
