Offseason Pitcher, Catcher and Hitting Clinics

SUNDAY Softball Clinics: Pitching, Catching and 8U Hitting

Naturally, EP Fastpitch recognizes that the two most important positions on any fastpitch softball team are the pitchers and catchers; so we are providing offseason instruction for EP Fastpitch girls playing these positions. We believe that fastpitch pitchers and catchers are made in the offseason! 

 

LOCATION: Eden Prairie High School Activity Center
COSTFREE!

8U = players with birthdays in 2013 and 2014
10U = players with birthdays in 2011 and 2012
12U = players with birthdays in 2009 and 2010


Pitchers Clinic Description:

If you are interested in becoming a fastpitch pitcher, or becoming a better one, then the EPFPA Pitching Clinics will help you achieve your goals. Girls will be organized by age division to allow for more focused instruction. These sessions include instruction by former collegiate pitchers, which lead to proper mechanics, speed and accuracy. 

All pitchers must provide someone to catch their pitches.
Parent tip: bring a 5-gallon bucket to sit on; your back and knees will thank you!

Catchers Clinic Description:

If you are interested in learning to become a catcher, or becoming a better one, the EPFPA Catching Clinics will help get you there. These sessions include instruction from former collegiate catchers on the key fundamentals of receiving, blocking, throwing and will also focus on conditioning drills specifically designed for the catcher. If you are a catcher but have never received any formal training, this clinic is a must. If you are a seasoned catcher, this will reinforce the fundamentals and take your catching skills to next level.

Even our youngest players need skill development- a big factor in successful 8U teams is in how well they can make contact on a pitch.
