As an additional offering for the winter, NYS has scheduled a 4-week pitching and catching clinic that will be organized and run by our Winter Clinics Director, Stephanie DeBaggis. Cost for 4 weeks is $30.
Stephanie has been involved in coaching with the program for the past few years and carries immense knowledge of pitching and development in this area. Stephanie was an extremely accomplished collegiate pitcher and we are very glad to have her involved with our program. Please see the info below on the clinic.
Nipmuc Youth Softball: Winter Pitching and Catching Clinic
Sundays on following 2019 dates: February 3, February 10, February 17, and February 24
Please sign up early as we will limit numbers depending on number of coaches available.
Pitchers’ instruction will focus on form, throwing for accuracy and consistency and then developing speed and power. Each pitcher will be given a “softie” to use in the gym.
Catchers will be instructed in correct body position, blocking, correct throwing, and framing. Please bring equipment if you have it.
Pitchers and catchers will be paired for live throwing.
What to bring: please bring your glove, water, and a pair of non-marking sneakers. It would be helpful to avoid tracking in weather during the winter months to carry your sneakers in with you. Please wear clothes suitable for practice.
