SEATTLE-- The University of Washington softball team is pleased to announce its Fall and Winter All Skills and Coaches Clinics Series. The Fall All Skills Clinic will be held Nov. 18, while the Winter All-Skills Clinic will take place Jan. 21. The Huskies will also host a Winter Coaches Clinic, Jan. 20.
Through the All Skills Clinics, players ages 8-18 will have an opportunity to develop skills in several areas such as infield defense, hitting and pitching. The clinics will be conducted by the UW coaching staff and players. Whether you are a recreation league player wishing to advance to a travel ball club, or a serious upper-classman wishing to advance your career in college, these clinics will provide 'proven methods' that will help any athlete improve.
All Skills Clinics cost $75 per person and run from 9 a.m.-noon at the Dempsey Indoor Facility located on the north side of Husky Softball Stadium.
Through the Coaches Clinic, coaches will develop sound and usable information of many aspects of the game. The topics will focus on aspects of fundamentals and troubleshooting flaws in softball players. Topics will include throwing, hitting fundamentals and drills, catching, pitching, beginning to advance infield and outfield play, situational defense, bunting, base running, slapping, and strength and conditioning.
The Winter Coaches Clinic costs $125 per coach (groups of 4 or more $100 each), and runs from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Jan. 20 at the Dempsey Indoor Facility. Lunch is included.
'The UW softball team and staff enjoy sharing what we are learning about the game of fastpitch softball with the local softball community,' said head coach Heather Tarr. 'It is a great opportunity for our student-athletes to connect with softball players and coaches at all levels in the region.
'I think one of the neat things about our Coaches' Clinic is that our student-athletes get to share what they know and demonstrate what they've been learning all year.
'Last year we received great feedback from local coaches in the area with our Coaches' Clinic. We expect the clinic in January to build on what we did last year.
