You throw the ball! You hit the ball! You catch the ball! (Skip from Bull Durham)
While most of us parents grew up playing baseball with hardly any (proper) instruction, there is a lot more to the game. To learn more, so that you can pass it along to your kids and their friends, District 2+6 is offering a free baseball coaching clinic.
There is an early morning clinic for T-ball, followed by an afternoon clinic for Rookie through Majors.
Here are the details ...
Saturday, 30th of April, 2011
9:00 AM to 12:00 PM for T-Ball coaches
1:00 PM to 4:00 PM for Rookie, Minor and Major coaches
Coaches of older players may attend too, but the sessions are geared more towards the younger players.
At the Arch Street Public School in Ottawa South, on Arch Street next to the Canterbury Community Center and the Brian Kilrea Arena.
Bring gloves, as this becomes interactive (and fun!). And bring some cash as you might end up being interested in purchasing additional training materials. Instead of an admission fee, Food bank donations are being accepted.
