IVCC Eagles Softball Clinic This Weekend

Illinois Valley Community College’s softball team hosts the 21st annual IVCC Eagles Softball Clinic Saturday and Sunday, February 15 and 16 in the gym.

 

Coaches and current players will offer softball instruction in hitting, bunting, fielding, throwing, base running and communication.

 

There are two sessions each day. On Saturday, participants in grades 2-4 meet 8 to 10:30 a.m. Grades 5-8 meet 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.  On Sunday, grades 2-4 meet 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with grades 5-8 meeting 1:30 to 4 p.m.

 

Cost is $40 per player and includes five hours of instruction and a T-shirt. If a player can only come one day, cost is $25.

 

All players should bring a glove and tennis shoes (no spikes or cleats allowed). If a player has her own bat, she is allowed to bring it.  Make sure all items have the player’s name on them for identification purposes.
