The Hudson Boosters’ softball programs will again be sponsoring pre-season clinics/open gymnasiums for girls starting Sunday, Jan. 16, at Willow River Elementary and St. Patrick Schools. These sessions are for all Hudson Booster softball players ages 9-18, including 8-year-olds who will be 9 by Aug. 31. Each session will offer skills development in hitting, fielding, pitching, catching and base running. Parents and coaches are also encouraged to attend.
These clinics will be beneficial for all girls, including those experiencing pitching for the first time, girls from the Recreational Program/Recreational Tournament Teams and girls considering trying out for the Booster’s Competitive Program. All girls interested in learning more about softball should attend.
The clinics will be run on the following Sundays: Jan, 16, Jan. 23, Jan. 30, Feb. 13, Feb. 20, Feb. 27, March 20, and March 27.
There will be no clinics on Super Bowl Sunday Feb. 6, and during spring break March 6 and March 13.
The time slots at Willow River (hitting, fielding and base running) will be broken up as follows:
The timeslots at St. Patrick School (pitchers and catchers) will be broken up as follows;
Since pitching is such a major part of successful softball program, the Boosters will continue with quality instruction for all the girls in the program during these clinics. Ex-Gopher pitchers Katie Dalen and Briana Hassett, along with Gopher pitching coach Piper Martin will be featured at the clinics.
The cost is $5 per Sunday for the Willow River sessions and an additional $5 for anyone attending the pitching instruction at St. Pat’s. Catchers will not be charged for St. Patrick’s sessions. The $5 fees will be used to cover the cost of the gym rental and to pay the hired pitching coaches and this is not a fundraiser.
Each girl along with a parent or guardian will be required to sign an injury waiver.
Girls who are either pitchers or catchers are encouraged to attend both the Willow River and the St. Patrick’s sessions. For safety issues girls participating in both sessions will be escorted between the gyms.
Any girl, who can’t attend the session for her age, is strongly encouraged to attend any session that works.
