Ellington Little League is proud to introduce a new offseason program to provide our returning players with an opportunity to get a head start on the 2020 Little League season.
In conjunction with the Athletic Training Institute (ATI), located at 14 Alcap Rdg, Cromwell, CT Ellington Little League is making 2 different types of clinics available to our players. These clinics will be led by professional coaches who have played and/or coached up to the professional level. The coaches are very energetic and love working with kids that have just gotten started on their baseball journeys. The players will receive AAU/travel team style and level of coaching at the clinics for a fraction of the cost of joining an AAU team/program.
The two clinics that will be available are:
Hitting/Fielding Clinic – space available for 15 Majors level and 15 Minors/Farm level per each session.
- Trainers (4)
- Extensive fielding area plus 2 batting cages for fielding and hitting instruction
- One-hour weekly sessions
- Dates are Saturday January 11th through Saturday February 1st
- The Majors level players time slot will be from 3:00 – 4:30
- The Minors/Farm level players will run from 4:30 – 6:00
Pitching Clinic – space available for 10 pitchers per session
- One-hour weekly sessions
- Dates are Saturday February 15th run through March 7th
- Advanced (returning Majors) 3:00 – 4:00
- Some experience (Minors) 4:00 – 5:00
- Beginners (Any age) 5:00 – 6:00
Now the best part…the fee to attend any of the clinics will only be $10 per session. For example, if a player attends 2 Hitting/Fielding clinics and 1 pitching clinic the total out of pocket fee would be $30!!!
We are currently working on updating the ELL registration and payment system on the website so in the interim if you are interested and/or have any questions regarding this program please contact Tanya Ellingwood at [email protected] Based on the flexible model of this program a player will have to register each week, and registrations requests must be sent to the email above (Tanya) no later than Wednesday each week.
