Iowa Lakes Community College softball program will hold Softball Clinics on Saturday, April 9, and Sunday, April 10, in Estherville.
The clinic will be divided into three units. The first will be a Youth Clinic serving those ages 5-12 where participants will go over the ‘mechanics’ of throwing & catching, fielding, base running and hitting. That session will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on April 9 and costs $40. The Lakers Softball team plays a double header following the clinic starting at 3:30 p.m.
The Sunday, April 10, clinics will focus on Advanced Hitting and Pitching and is open to all ages. The Hitting clinic runs from 1:00-2:15 p.m. Topics covered will include hitting mechanics, drills and mental training. Cost for the Advanced Hitting session is $40.
Following that, an Advanced Pitching Clinic will be held from 2:15-3:30 p.m. which will cover pitching mechanics, the drop/change/rise/curve pitches as well as mental training for a winning attitude. Cost is $40. This is also open to all ages; however, each pitcher is required to bring a catcher and organizers would prefer it is a parent or coach.
Participants may select one or all three of the clinics. All sessions will be held at the Softball Field or Christensen Building on the Estherville campus of Iowa Lakes.
