Canton Little League is pleased to offer a 10-week, 1 hour per week, instructional baseball clinic for $100 for the entire 10 week program!
Tuesday's from 3:30 - 4:30 for 11-12 year olds. The program will be held TJO Sports, 5 Carver Circle beginning Tuesday, January 5th, 2021 through Friday March 16th, 2021 (no clinics on vacation week of Feb. 14th).
We encourage all of our young athletes, between the ages of 6 and 12, to take advantage of this tremendous opportunity to get ready for the spring season.
These clinics provide the skills and proper repetitions necessary to compete at a higher level, with more confidence, and a better understanding of the game.
The younger age groups will establish the fundamental skills of gripping and throwing the baseball as well as proper fielding and hitting mechanics. Skills that will continue to develop throughout each little leaguer's career and beyond. (Parent involvement promotes proper technique and is strongly encouraged, particularly at the 6-7 year old age level).
The program will be held Sunday afternoons at TJO Sports, 5 Carver Circle beginning Tuesday, January 5th, 2021 through Friday March 19th, 2021 (no clinics on vacation week of Feb. 14th).
The 6-7 year old clinic will run from 4:30-5:30 pm on Friday afternoons, the 8, 9, 10 year old group will run from 4:30 - 5:30 pm on Wednesday afternoons, the 11-12 year old group will run from 3:30 - 4:30 Tuesday afternoons.
The clinics are designed to focus on the fundamentals of hitting, fielding, throwing and running. The instructors will work with the higher age levels on the finer points of the game in the latter weeks:
Pitchers: How to present themselves on the mound and adjust to the varying mechanics of pitching vs. throwing.
Fielders: Pre-pitch preparation: "If I get the ball, what do I do with it."
Hitters: On deck batter - timing the pitcher, observing the pitcher to understand his tendency’s and what you may face at-bat. Hitting off-speed pitches and the outside fastball.
Base Running: Proper positioning, how to read a ball hit in the dirt, picking up base coaches on base paths and proper base-running techniques.
