Upcoming SRLL Baseball Clinics

With Little League Assessments just around the corner it is time to start getting ready for the season. 

I look forward to seeing all of you at the clinics, it is our goal to get as many coaches out as possible to allow for smaller group sizes and more reps.  I will share plenty of ideas for drills that players can use at practice or at home.  Bring all your questions with you and we will work on answering them, the extra work at home will allow the players to develop confidence and reinforce the skills they are learning at practice.
