Boys Minors - Beginning Pitching Skills Clinic

This clinic is designed around the fundamentals of throwing; with an emphasis on pitching and catching for the first time in game situations. The clinic will focus on pitching mechanics, physical techniques and the mental approach to throwing strikes. This will be an active camp with participants learning arm care, pitch grips, arm slot, release point and follow through, while having fun. There will be supervised bullpen sessions, where players will both pitch and catch. 

The clinic will be headed by Robert Young. Mr. Young is a graduate of RFYBS, OPRF Pony League and a Letterman at OPRF High School. He has umpired and coached in River Forest. He has coached all levels of high school baseball for 14 years, including 7 years as Varsity Head coach. His experience in coaching will translate to the development of the young ballplayer.

The camp will run from January 13th to February 24th 2018 (4;30 to 5:30) for 7 sessions. The clinic will be at Sportzone, located at  2100 N. 15th Ave, Melrose Park, IL 60160.
