Sessions held form February 23rd to March 16th will be for all children in the given birth years to work on basic technique. Sessions from March 23rd to April 6th will be open to children who want to be baseball pitchers and catchers. We will be focusing more on the mechanics of pitching and the fine art of catching.

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.
