Registration is now open for a free baseball clinic which will be hosted by local coaches and instructors at the high school ball fields May 3-4.
The clinic is open to boys and girls ages 8-13. Participants will receive instruction and repetitions aimed at developing fundamental skills for throwing, fielding, pitching and catching. All skill levels are encouraged to attend.
Registrations are available at the recreation office in Town Hall and at the middle school front desk. Registrations can also be downloaded in Adobe format from the recreation department page at www.townofpagosasprings.com.
Players will be grouped by age and/or ability level. Skills evaluations will be done Friday to determine which participants will be placed into pitching- and catching-specific drills. All others will focus on fielding and throwing drills.
The clinic will run from 5-7:30 p.m. May 3 and from 8:30 a.m.-noon May 4. Parents and coaches are welcome to stay throughout the clinic to observe and will be encouraged to help reinforce drills at home, practices and games. Participants will need to bring their own gloves and drinks. Since this is not a hitting clinic, no bats will be allowed.
