Location: North Dakota State University – Dacotah Field Bubble
Date: January 24, 2015
Grades: 7-12
Cost: pitching - $50, all skills - $75, Slapping - $25

Bison clinics allow players to come and learn new skills and sharpen old ones as we head into the New Year; it is also the time of year where players can spend time improving their skills and fundamentals to make themselves better players.

Come see what skills are taught and worked on during our NDSU Softball Season, to ensure player improvement and team success. This clinic is open to any and all entrants (limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender).

Pitching Clinic:
These clinics will break down the pitching motion and present the drills necessary to increase consistency and effectiveness. Coaches will also introduce different pitches (based on skill level), teaching the correct technique, fundamentals, and drills essential for throwing them. Pitchers must provide their own catchers.

All Skills Clinic:
Offensive and defensive skills and strategies will be the main focus of the All Skills Clinic. This clinic is ideal for softball players who are ready to develop their abilities to play at the next level. Whether you are beginning your competitive experience or moving up in age for travel ball, high school, or even college, this camp will take the basic game fundamentals to a more advanced level.

Slapping Clinic:
Slapping is a great tool to incorporate into your game if you have speed and good hand-eye coordination. When executed correctly, it can be almost impossible to defend. In this clinic we will break down the slap footwork and handwork, as well as introduce different kinds of slaps like the hard/power slap, soft slap, and drag bunt.
