Hitting and Fielding Clinic

This clinic is organized in conjunction with the Shed Sports Complex and will feature coach Ryan Hayes (former Delano high school coach). 

Questions about the registration process can be directed to Ann at info@shedsports.com
 
The cost for eight (one hour) sessions is $190 per player.  The expense for this clinic is higher than pitching and catching due to facility rental and the number of sessions.  Clinics start mid February and continue through early April.
 
Registration will be through the Shed Sports Complex website.  Find The Shed Complex and go to the CLINICS tab.
You will then  find four windows that describe the clinic dates and times.  The clinics are divided into age groups:
 
Thursdays: Feb. 15th, 22nd, Mar. 1,8,15,22,29, Apr. 5th
10-11yr olds 7pm-8pm
