Wildcat softball skills clinic

The Linfield College Softball Program is conducting two instructional All-Skills Fastpitch Clinics for girls ages 8-18 on January 25 and February 1.

All the clinic instruction will be provided by the coaches and players of the Linfield College Wildcats, one of the most consistently successful softball programs in the country.

The Linfield College softball program has compiled 13 Northwest Conference Championships, 15 trips to the NCAA Playoffs, 13 National Top-15 Finishes, and an overall record of 619-141-2 since 2004, including NCAA Division III National Championships in 2007 and 2011. The Wildcats have seen 32 players receive NFCA All-American recognition during that time while leading the entire nation in home runs in 2010, 2011, and 2012.

The 2019 team finished the year ranked in the top-10 nationally in slugging percentage, home runs, doubles and scoring.

Each clinic will stress the skills and fundamentals necessary to be successful at any level of competition. The skills covered will include hitting, bunting, base-running and fundamental defensive play for infielders and outfielders.

There will also be time for pitchers and catchers to learn from the Wildcat coaches and pitching staff.

For girls ages 13-18, both clinics will also feature a post-clinic talk about developing success skills on and off the softball field and a question and answer session where clinic attendees can ask Linfield coaches and players questions about college and the softball recruiting process.

The cost is $65 per camper for ages 13-18 or $45 for campers ages 8-12.
