Registration for the PGSL Spring Pitching Clinic is Open!
Parkway Girls Softball League will offer a Spring Pitching Clinic for any player interested in developing this very specialized skill. Anyone interested in pitching during the spring or summer season is encouraged to participate. The Winter Clinic will have two sessions, one for Beginner/Novice players and a second session for Intermediate/Advanced Players. The beginner session is for players that have never pitched or only taken a few clinics. The intermediate/advanced session is for experienced pitchers. Take advantage of this opportunity to prepare for the Spring and Summer seasons!
We would like to introduce our new instructor, Kristin McDermott. She studied for many years under Janelle Carlson, and was a successful varsity pitcher for Mount Alvernia High School. In addition to PGSL's Summer Pitching clinic, Kristen has worked as pitching advisor to Watertown High School, and she currently provides clinics for the Waltham and Watertown youth softball programs. She also provides private instruction to many girls in the Parkway, Dedham, Watertown and Waltham areas. Here are the clinic's details:
Instructor: Kristen McDermott
Dates: Saturday, February 25th - Saturday, April 1st
Beginner/Novice Session 8:00am
Location: Washington Irving Middle School, Roslindale
Because space is limited, please register on the PGSL website (parkwaygirlssbl.com/register). Please contact Mark Batte at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. This clinic is being offered on a first come, first served basis. When registering, please provide your Pitching experience.
Each pitcher is required to provide their own catcher (parent / responsible friend or sibling) for each session.
PGSL is offering a Spring hitting clinic for all players, which provides instruction to improve your player's hitting skills. The Spring Hitting Clinics provide a great opportunity for players to prepare for PGSLEvalulations or Tryouts for their school teams. We are excited to announce the return of our hitting instructor, Angela Vecchione. Angela has been recognized locally, regionally, and nationally as a force in fast pitch softball, in both High School and College.
Once again, a key feature of the hitting clinics is that players will be split into Beginner/Novice and Intermediate/Advanced groups. The Beginner/Novice Group will be for players who have never taken a PGSL hitting clinic (or have taken one and need a refresher course); and will focus on fundamentals. This group generally consists of U-8 and U10 players. The Intermediate/Advanced Group is for players older players or players who have taken PGSL hitting clinics before and will focus on more advanced techniques and have a quicker pace.
The Spring hitting clinic will be a four week session held on Saturday mornings (February11th, February 25th, March 4th, and March 11th). The clinics will be at the Washington Irving School at 105 Cummins Highway in Roslindale.
There will be two one-hour sessions each week:
Beginner/ Novice: 10:00am to 11:00am Intermediate/Advanced: 11:00am to 12:00pm.
Twelve girls can be accommodated in each group, and all players must register on the PGSL website. The cost is $70 for each four week session. Participants may pay by credit on the PGSL website, by accessing the registration tab and selecting the 2017 Spring Hitting Clinic. Payment may also be made by check, payable toPGSL. Checks must be brought to the first session.
Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and it is expected that this session will fill up quickly. Please send an email to pgslregister for any questions you may have.
