Pitching Clinics

We are excited for you to meet and work with our pitching clinician, 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 (9) and Camden (5). The boys are their biggest fans during their coed softball games! Session 2 (or winter clinics) begins in early January. Pitching, catching, and skills will be offered during session 2.

All athletes participating in pitching clinics will have an open gym opportunity on Wednesday nights from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm.  No outside instructors are allowed. Due to small gym space, this time and space is limited to pitchers and catchers. Softies must be used.
