FCA Softball team hosts Lil’ Sluggers Clinic

From press & staff reports

With the spring season right around the corner, the French Camp Ladies’ Softball team is hosting a Lil’ Sluggers Clinic from March 26-28 at the French Camp Academy Softball Fields.

Registration fee for the clinic is $25 per participant (non-refundable), and will include a t-shirt the size of their choice. Registration forms can be picked up at French Camp Academy High School, or you can request to have one emailed to you by contacting Coach Sarah Skidmore at sskidmore@frenchcamp.org. The deadline to register for this event is March 7.

The softball clinic is for any girls, Grades 1-6, who are interested in learning the basics of the game as well as good sportsmanship. Skills that will be practiced at the clinic include fielding, hitting, throwing techniques, and base running. Practice will be held from 3:30-5 p.m., and all participants will need their own glove, with a bat and helmet being optional. The clinic will supply Gatorade and light snacks for all participants.

On the last day of the event, March 28, a skills demonstration by the Lil Sluggers will start at 6:30 p.m. The event will allow the participants to showcase what they learned during the three-day period. Families are encouraged and invited to attend.

All proceeds from this event will go towards the Lady Panthers Softball team. The team is looking raise funds to assist with field improvements.
