Catching Info
Join us for a six-week catcher's clinic designed to elevate your skills behind the plate. This program will delve into crucial elements of the catcher's role, including stance, signs, receiving, framing, blocking, throwing, fielding bunts, and executing tags. 

Players are encouraged to bring their personal catching gear, but worry not if you don't have it—extra sets will be available for those in need.

Our primary aim is to provide each participant with ample practice opportunities and valuable insights that can be applied in future seasons. All skill levels are welcome, and prior experience is not required.
