Clinic Summary: Catching is arguably the toughest position on the field! Unfortunately, we've found that good instruction is generally unavailable to players on the South Shore. This is a TWO DAY instructional clinic that will cover many aspects of catching. Our staff is dedicated to making sure we will provide a fun and enjoyable experience for all attendees, staff and visitors.
We will supply comprehensive and expert instruction in all phases of softball catching. Stances, blocking, framing, throwing mechanics, pickoffs and more will be covered.
Players will learn from one of the best softball catchers in the area who has played, caught and coached softball at recreational, high school and collegiate levels!
