Pitching Clinics

Our pitching clinics will be led by Lori George. Lori has been a pitching coach for about 10 years and spent 5 years coaching at the high school level. She played softball at Cooper High School and was an all-conference pitcher.  Her specialty is the riseball but she also threw and teaches the curveball, drop, change and screw.  She enjoys helping pitchers find their strengths while gaining speed, accuracy, and confidence.  

Lori's family includes her husband Mike and 2 sons - Braden and Camden. The boys are their biggest fans during their coed softball games! Winter pitching clinics begin in January.

Fundamental Winter Skills Clinics - ages 6 through 12u players

Our winter Fundamental Skills Clinics focus on developing fundamental softball skills in a fun environment. These clinics are designed for players that will play at the 8U to 10U levels next summer. 12U players that want to focus on fundamentals are welcome to attend. 

Players 6 and under may attend for no charge, but could provide a donation if they desire.  

New: Players may bring a friend to clinics. Friends may attend one time for free on a "try-it" basis, but must complete a waiver. If they want to continue to attend after that, we will offer a pro-rated registration fee.

We anticipate the school district will require all instructors and participants to wear masks during the clinics.

Clinics will be on Sunday afternoons beginning on January 17th and running through March 21st. We may take one week off for evaluations. The sessions are tentatively scheduled to begin at 1:15 and wrap up between 2:30-2:45.

Cost: $100 for ten sessions 75-90 minutes in length.  
Location: Hopkins North JH Activity Structure
Clinicians: Led by our volunteer coaches with the assistance from high school softball players. 

Advanced Winter Skills & Training Clinics -12U-18U players

These clinics are designed for junior high and high school aged athletes looking for a more advanced and intense training opportunity.  These sessions will being in early December and run through early March.  These will be available to 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U players. 

For the 2021 off season, we are excited to partner with Hit Dawg Academy. Hit Dawg Academy is coordinated by Lisa Kohler with the assistance of other experienced  coaches and instructors.  Lisa was a 4 years starting pitcher at NCAA Division II Northern State.  She played professional softball for four years in Puerto Rico.  She has served as a high school head coach, and has coached elite level teams from 14U-18U level.  Lisa has provided  individual and group softball instruction for many years.  Many of her players have gone on to compete in collegiate softball at the NCAA level.
