    This clinic is for those who are beginning  their pitching or catchers career. You will learn the basic fundamentals of the position. If you are interested in one or both of these positions this is a great starting place.

    Catchers please bring your own equipment if you have it otherwise the association has some for you to use. 

    Pop-Up Pitching Clinic e-mail registration

    Pop-up Pitching Clinics - all levels of pitching will be welcome.

    Keep your eye out for the Zimmerman pitching pop-up clinics. Our clinician is Angie Waldoch (Recknor), a former starting pitcher for the University of Minnesota and Pitching Coach at Hamline University and Midwest Power and  currently leads pitching clinics for multiple softball associations in the metro.

    She will be hosting a few pop-up pitching clinics in Zimmerman in the near future. We are working with specific dates as she is a very busy lady! Each clinic will cost $10 and will be 1 hour long. Girls will need to bring their own catcher (catchers under 18 years old must wear a face mask). 

    The pitching clinic provides each girl individual instruction on the skills of fastpitch pitching.  This includes technique, speed improvement, control, and different types of pitches.  

     

    This registration is intended to create an e-mail list of those players that would like to attend a pop up clinic when they happen. We will use this registration as a list of who to send out the information to.  Attendance is based on your availability and payment is collected at the start of the clinic.   This is not a registration for the pop up clinic.  You need only to arrive on time and pay before attending the clinic. 

    The e-mails will go out to all those that are registered.

    Every week schedules are created by record. We will do our best to place your team against opponents with similar records. This is not always possible due to odd numbers of teams. If we have an odd number of teams at a location, there are occasions that we must stagger your game schedule for your team.  It rarely happens but it may.  Also, depending on how many fields we have at each age level in each region teams may have to be move from region to region to play games.
