Softball Pitching Clinics

BCLL and SDLL are excited to be offering pitching clinics this fall! Any BCLL or SDLL softball players registered for the fall 2022 season are invited to attend all clinics, regardless of location.

South Durham Pitching Clinics

  • Clinics will be held on the following dates/times/locations:
    • Saturday, September 10 from 2:00-4:00 PM at Parkwood Ballfield
    • Saturday, September 17 from 2:00-4:00 PM at Parkwood Ballfield
    • Saturday, October 1 from 3:00-5:00 PM at Parkwood Ballfield
    • Saturday, October 29 from 2:00-4:00 PM at Hillside HS
  • SDLL clinics will be led by Kate Clark, a former NCAA DI Softball player at Robert Morris University.
  • All players are asked to bring their own catcher to these clinics - preferably, this catcher is a parent/guardian/sibling that can also learn from these clinics so instruction can continue at home.
  • All participants (players and their catcher) will be asked to sign a liability waiver prior to attending any clinics.
  • There will be two sessions (one hour each) on every clinic date. The first hour of each session will be targeted toward beginning pitchers who have pitched for fewer than two seasons. The second hour of each session will be geared toward intermediate/advanced pitchers with 2+ seasons of pitching experience.
  • We hope to not need to cap attendance at these sessions, though we may need to revisit this based on interest. For now, we do ask each family to RSVP for the clinics you plan to attend so that we can prepare for these sessions appropriately. If you plan to attend any sessions, please RSVP here - there is no deadline to RSVP.
