Skills Clinics are BACK!

We are bringing back our Winter Skills Clinics for the 2020 Season. Clinics are FREE and open to all 8u, 10u and 12u players currently registered for the 2020 CBGSA Season.

This year, the clinics will be offered on Sundays from 1pm to 5pm.

Clinic Dates are: March 1, March 8, March 15, March 22, March 29 and April 5.

Daily Schedule:
1pm - 1:50pm: Beginning Pitching: For all 8u pitchers, as well as players who have NOT previously attended a CBGSA Pitching Clinic.
2pm - 2:50pm: General Skills - 8u and 10u players to
3pm - 3:50pm: General Skills - 10u and 12u players
4pm - 4:50pm: Intermediate Pitching: For 10u and 12u players who ALSO have previously attended a CBGSA pitching clinic.

There is no pre-registration required for the General Skills clinics. Just show up ready to practice. 10u players may attend EITHER the 2pm or 3pm session. Attend as many or as few weeks as you can.

For Pitching, pre-registration is required. Please e-mail Tiffany Vehrs at Tiffany@CBGSA.com to pre-register. Attendance at all sessions is expected, as pitching clinics are progressive and players will fall behind if they miss sessions. Pitchers need to bring someone with them to catch. Players who pre-registered for and attended our January clinic, please send Tiffany an email to confirm that you will be able to attend the new clinic dates.

This year, clinics will be held Outdoors at Larson Playfields, Field M.

Pitching training:  Pitching will be a progressive program, so players are highly encouraged attend as many sessions as possible. The program will begin with basic pitching mechanics and warm up drills and build players to live pitching. To provide a proper coach to player ratio and ensure the success of our pitchers, available spots are limited. Each pitcher is required to provide their own catcher, which should be an adult. 

General Skills Sessions: Sessions will cover a variety of softball fundamentals, including throwing, hitting, bunting, baserunning and fielding. Each session will cover a specific skill. 

For all sessions, players should wear athletic attire and either tennis shoes or cleats, and bring their glove and a water bottle. Players may also bring a bat and a fielder's mask if they choose. All other necessary equipment will be provided. PLAYERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO DRESS WARM AS CLINICS WILL BE HELD OUTSIDE.
