USI softball to hold clinics
The University of Southern Indiana softball team will be putting on pitching and catching clinic Sunday, February 9, as well as a hitting clinic Sunday, March 2, for ages 8 through 18. Both clinics will start at 9 a.m. and conclude by noon. The clinic staff will consist of the USI coaching staff and current players.
Included in the pitching clinic will be overhand throwing techniques, general body mechanics, and instruction on various pitches. Pitchers must bring some one to catch for them and catcher must bring their own gear.
The catching clinic will include techniques on flexibility, overhand throwing, fielding and blocking techniques, as well as handling pitchers and receiving pitches.
Included in the hitting clinic on March 2, will be the fundamentals of swinging, upper and lower body mechanics, as well as hitting low, high, inside, and outside pitches.
Registration will be limited in numbers to provide more individual instruction and will be on a first-come, first-sever basis.
Costs for the clinics are:
Beginning and Advanced Pitching: $35.00 per pitcher
Catching: $35.00 per catcher
Hitting: $40.00 per hitter
