Cotuit Kettleers Youth Baseball Clinic Week 4 (Centerville)
Centerville-Centerville Elementary,, Massachusetts
Ages: 6-12 | Camp Times: 9:00am
The Cotuit Kettleers Summer Baseball Clinics
offer a balanced program of fun and instruction
in the game of baseball.
It is a co-ed program for
children ages 6 -12 who want to improve
their baseball or softball skills. Players are
grouped according to age and ability.
Instruction includes proper techniques
for stretching and warm-up, throwing,
fielding, base running, and hitting.
Team spirit and sportsmanship.
Your child will be instructed by members of this
year's Cotuit Kettleers, coaches and players
from leading NCAA baseball programs across the
country. These individuals have been selected as
Clinic leaders based on their formal training and
practical experience in youth sports coaching,
their dedication to youth baseball and their personal
accomplishments in the game.
Detailed Camp Description
Group instruction at skill stations will be given each day. At times, different games and activities designed to keep participants interest will be incorporated into the clinic schedule. A scrimmage baseball game generally concludes the day's activities.
Equipment & Supplies
Each child should bring a baseball glove, a light snack and beverage (water is best). All belongings should be clearly marked with the child's name. We discourage bringing equipment (Bats and catchers gear) as we have the proper equipment that is needed for our instructional stations. However, the coaches will take any forgotten items to Lowell Park for safekeeping. You may pick up any lost items at the announcer's booth following the clinic or at the next game. Please bring a towel and optional bathing suit for the final day of each camp for Fabulous Friday
All children from both clinic LOCATIONS (Cotuit and Centerville) meet at Lowell Park for clinic Fridays (Week 6 will be on the final day, Thursday) to practice skills on the Kettleers field. Halfway through the day's session, everyone walks one block to the Waldorf School to slip-n-slide with the players and coaches. (Please pack a towel.) At the end of the Friday session, children are given a complimentary t-shirt. Children shall be
picked up at the Waldorf School promptly at the end of Friday's session.
The most important lessons to be learned in the Kettleers clinics are sportsmanship and respect for fellow athletes. We believe in creating an atmosphere of encouragement and respect on the field. Any child who does not adhere to our standards regarding behavior and language may be asked to leave the clinic.
Cancellation due to serious weather will be announced 8:30 am. Please call the clinic phone number for a recorded message (508-428-2847) The clinics will cancel only in the event of unusual weather conditions (downpour, thunderstorm, etc.). There is no shelter available at the clinic sites, so attendance is left to parental discretion. Rain days may be made up in another session (with the exception of the final session) by advance scheduling with the coach in charge. Only days cancelled by the clinic coaches may be made up.
Please check your email regularly as this is our primary way we communicate. Any additional information that we need to convey as the clinic draws closer will be passed on to you via the e-mail address that you supplied when you signed up for clinic. Please make it a habit to check your e-mail daily, this will eliminate any confusion and or miscommunication.
