Department FAQ: Will my daughter receive individualized instruction?
YES!!! Each session has a limited number of girls and ages allowing for group and individual instruction throughout the session.
Does my daughter need to be from the Burnsville school district to participate? ---NO!!! All kids are welcome!!!
What should I bring? ---Every clinic you must bring your own catcher if you are attending one of the pitching sessions. If you are attending the catching sessions you must bring your own gear. Each player should be wearing athletic clothes (ex. t-shirt and shorts). No cleats are allowed on the gym floor so you must wear tennis shoes. EVERYONE BRING A GLOVE!!!
Format: Beginning weeks will be creating baseline fundamentals for all levels of pitchers and catchers, while still receiving individualized instruction. As the weeks progress, each pitcher/catcher will receive more and more individualized attention so that EACH pitcher/catcher can achieve the most individual progress over the sessions.
