YOUR SOFTBALL CLINICS
Customized For YOU!!
Our program will be customized for you!! It will not be a packaged program, but rather planned jointly with you so that we cover what you feel is most needed for people in your program. It can be set up for players, coaches, or both. It can be set for overall skill development or it can be a specialty clinic that focuses on just a few topics or even a single topic such as hitting or pitching.
Some popular schedules include one day, or evening, for coaches and another full day or more for players. Often, the coaches and/or parents attend the player sessions so that they can assist with drills and later reinforce what we covered with the players. We will work within your desires and set the schedule to meet your needs and your budget.
You may also want to consider hands-on sessions for coaches or a combination clinic with some indoors lecture-demo and some outdoors or gymnasium hands-on sessions. That often leads to greater understanding and increased ability to implement the skills and drills.
Contact us now and we will be glad to provide additional materials related to fees, schedules, and our products and services. We are very flexible, very creative, and we will work with you to find a way to meet the needs of your program. Please allow us to be your source for instructional services and products that are specifically designed for Helping YOU Get Better Every Day.
