Space is limited so if you are interested please contact me via email ([email protected] ) so I can get an idea of the numbers we might be looking at.

We are looking at having some pitching clinics for softball pitchers depending on the interest in it. If your daughter or son is interested in attending a pitching clinic please let Mike Merchant [email protected].  If we have enough interest we will arrange for this to happen.
