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.

Each clinic stresses the skills and fundamentals necessary to be successful at any level of competition, including 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.
