TORONTO PLAYGROUNDS HOUSE LEAGUE BASEBALL WILL BE HOSTING A SATURDAY BLUE JAYS CLINIC AT CHRISTIE PITS FOR PLAYERS AGED 8* TO 14
Toronto Playgrounds House League Baseball will be hosting a Toronto Blue Jays Honda Instructional Clinic on Saturday, May 2 at Christie Pits (750 Bloor Street West) for all interested players aged 8* to 14.
Qualified Blue Jays instructors will be on hand to teach young players (both male and female) all the necessary and fundamental baseball skills one should know in a fun and structured atmosphere.
Each 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 in order to check in at our registration table.
In addition, the TP Baseball Barbecue Zone will be on hand selling hot dogs, veggie dogs, snacks and drinks at the event.
The fee for the clinic is $45.00 (plus H.S.T.) per player and the instructional sessions will commence at 9:00 a.m. and run until 1:00 p.m. All registered players will also receive a free Blue Jays hat, tee shirt and manual for participating in the clinic.
Any interested parents and players can sign up online for the instructional clinic via the following link:
Please select the “Toronto Playgrounds Christie Pits option”. Registrants for the clinic are advised that the Blue Jays will be processing all registrations and payments for the event.
[* Parents and Players are advised that the Blue Jays will gladly allow any players who are turning 8-years old this year to register for the clinic.]
The clinic will be held outdoors at Christie Pits. In the event of rain, the Jays Instructional Clinic will proceed as scheduled, with the event moving indoors to the gym facilities at Harbord Collegiate Institute (286 Harbord Street).
The Blue Jays are keenly aware of the need for local associations (like Toronto Playgrounds House League Baseball) to raise funds to offset some of the rising costs they are experiencing. Therefore, TP House League Baseball will receive $20 per participant for hosting the instructional clinic.
Not only are the Instructional Clinics an excellent fundraising opportunity for local baseball associations, these clinics will also compliment the local association’s player development program. It’s a win win event for everyone involved.
