Sept. 20, 2012
The Georgetown University softball program will host a Fall Clinic on campus on Sunday, November 18. The clinic, run by Head Coach Pat Conlan, will include sessions on pitching, fielding and hitting.
The clinic will start at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18 with a pitching clinic at Georgetown's Multi-Sport Field. Pitchers will be divided into age and/or skill level and drills will help to develop correct mechanics and improve basic skills as well as how to throw pitches and drills to increase explosiveness off the mount. The session on pitching, which will be run by Conlan and Longwood assistant coach Jennifer Steele, will run until 1 p.m.
An infield clinic will be held at the Multi-Sport Field from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This session will include drills to develop proper throwing mechanics, improve arm strength, accuracy and quickness as well as drills to develop proper fielding techniques and footwork.
The Fall Clinic closes out with a hitting clinic, from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Georgetown batting cages. This session will include an overview of hitting mechanics. There is a 40-player maximum for the hitting clinics and video analysis is available for an additional $25.
Costs for the clinic are $100 for the pitching clinic, $75 for the infield clinic and $75 for the hitting clinic (with an addition $25 charge for optional video analysis). Checks should be made payable to Hoya Softball Camp.
