AS OF 8:15 A.M., THE JAYS CLINIC IS PROCEEDING AS SCHEDULED AT CHRISTIE PITS THIS SATURDAY MORNING
The Toronto Playgrounds Baseball Committee would like to advise registrants that the Toronto Blue Jays Instructional Clinic on Saturday, May 3 is proceeding as scheduled at Christie Pits this morning.
Parents and Players attending the clinic are advised to check for updates via our Twitter feed @TPbaseballnews.
Qualified Blue Jays instructors will be on hand to focus on teaching young players (aged 8 to 14) all the necessary fundamental baseball skills in a fun and structured atmosphere.
The clinic will be four hours in length. During the clinic, players will rotate through drills that will deal with skills such as: hitting, throwing, fielding, pitching and baserunning. We’ll also invite coaches to come out onto the field to observe and ask the Jays instructors questions.
Each registered clinic attendee should bring their glove, bat, and helmet along with a drink and snacks. We recommend that you arrive 15 to 30 minutes before the clinic begins due to registration.
In addition, the TP Baseball Barbecue Brigade will also be selling hot dogs, veggie dogs, snacks and drinks at the event.
The Blue Jays are keenly aware of the need for local associations (like Toronto Playgrounds House League and Select Baseball) to raise funds to offset some of the rising costs they are experiencing. Therefore, TP Baseball will receive $20 per registration for hosting the instructional clinic.
Not only are the Instructional Clinics an excellent fundraising opportunity for your local baseball association, these clinics will also compliment your local association’s player development program. It’s a win win event for everyone involved.
