Free Pitching and Catching Clinic

Blacksburg Softball Association is pleased to announce our free pitching and catching clinic, open to all Babe Ruth Softball players in either the 10U or 12U age group.

The clinic will be held on Sunday May 20 from 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM on the field at Kipps Elementary School.

Our clinic will be staffed by experienced collegiate and high school pitchers and catchers as well as coaches from our program, and is targeted for young players who want to learn to pitch or catch or who simply want to improve their pitching or catching skills.

For Pitchers

  • Fundamentals of pitching motion
  • Pitching and fielding from the circle
  • Practice and conditioning techniques you can use to take your pitching to the next level
  • Tips on building confidence
  • Before-game preparation and after-game recovery

For Catchers

  • Fundamentals of the catching position
  • Catching and fielding from behind the plate
  • Practice and conditioning techniques you can use to take your catching to the next level
  • Tips on building confidence
  • Before-game preparation and after-game recovery

After a group warm-up, coaches will work with pitchers and catchers separately to allow focus on position-specific instruction. Pitchers and catchers will then be paired up to work together to practice technique and get further evaluation and tips from coaches.

If you plan to attend our free clinic or simply want more information, please contact us at blacksburgsoftball@gmail.com. Be sure to include the player’s name and age group in your message.

Hope to see you on May 20!
