PGSL is offering a Winter hitting clinic for all players, which provides an opportunity to improve your player's hitting skills. We are excited to announce the return of last year's 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.
Angela, was a four year All Star at Whitman-Hanson High School (1997). As a senior she was awarded the Boston Globe, Brockton Enterprise, and Patriot Ledger All-Scholastic Awards. As a four year starter at Bridgewater State College (2001) she twice helped power her team to World Series play while accumulating awards such as BSC Female Athlete of the Year (1998), ECAC Player of the Year (1999), MASCAC Player of the Year (1999 & 2001), and third team All-American honors. She holds records at Bridgewater State for most career hits, most triples in a season, career stolen bases, and NCAA Division III record for career triples. After college, Angela was an assistant coach at Wheaton 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 Winter hitting clinic will be a four week session held on Saturday mornings (January 7th, 14th, 28th, and February 4th). 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 2016 Winter 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.
