Register for the Pitching or Catching Clinic & the All Skills Clinic for $165.00

Location: Dacotah Field Bubble, 1310 17th Avenue N. Fargo, ND 58102

Pitching Clinic: This clinic will break down the pitching motion and present the drills necessary to increase consistency, speed, and effectiveness. Coaches will also introduce different pitches (based on skill level), teaching the correct technique, fundamentals, and drills essential for throwing them.
→ Pitchers must provide their own catchers (ex. parent/sibling), a non-attendee of our catching clinic.  

Catching Clinic: This catching clinic will introduce drills that will sharpen your game behind the plate. Improve your skills in receiving, blocking, throwing, and footwork. Catchers will have the opportunity to catch pitchers at the end of the session. Former NDSU Bison All-Region catcher, Alyssa Reina, will be the lead instructor of this clinic.
→ Catchers must provide their own gear.

Slapping Clinic: Slapping is a great tool to incorporate into your game if you have speed and good hand-eye coordination. When executed correctly, it can be almost impossible to defend. In this clinic we will break down the slap footwork and handwork, as well as introduce different kinds of slaps like the hard/power slap, soft slap, and drag bunt.

All Skills Clinic: Offensive and defensive skills and strategies will be the focus of the All Skills Clinic.  This clinic is ideal for softball players who are ready to develop their abilities and gain a better understanding of how to play the game. This camp will break down the basic game fundamentals providing you every day drills to practice to take your game to the next level.

Items To Bring: We ask all participants to wear TENNIS SHOES because we will be inside on a turf field; NO CLEATS. Participants must provide their own glove along with a bat and helmet for all skills; make sure your full name is on your personal equipment. We will provide a water station, please bring a personal water bottle for refilling. Please no gum or sunflower seeds indoors.
