“Getting a hit means a whole lot more when you look up into the stands and the people you care about are there to see it”…BASEBALLISM
Hello everyone. This is Coach Chiasson and I hope all is well and you are enjoying this holiday season. As we start to look into 2019 and get ready for the baseball season, I am starting to book my winter lesson and clinic schedule.
I will be at Triple Play on Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays nights between 3:30 – 8:00 and all day on Saturdays throughout the winter. If you would like a weekly/every other week or to lock in a time or clinic slot, please email or call me so you will get the days/times you would like.
For those of you who don’t know me, my BIO is below:
Chiasson played College Baseball at Lowell University from 1979-1982, being named captain in 1982. Along with teammatesMike Bryant (father of NL MVP and World Series champion Kris Bryant and 1987 gold glove winner/10 year major league player Mike Lavalliere,), Chiasson batted .444 in 82’, earning NE Div II batting title honors. I regularly speak with Bryant and Lavailliere and talk baseball, getting helpful tips or hints to pass along to my players. Last year both were guest phone speakers at a high school clinic that I ran at Triple Play.
I am currently coaching AAU U13 team, having coached both U12 and U13 levels since 2003. I teach a very aggressive style of hitting, with my last 5 teams averaging 300+ runs and 300 hits over a 30 game schedule. Many of my past players are successful high school and college ball players.
CLINIC and LESSON INFO:
Players will be taught all aspects of the game (hitting/throwing/fielding)
All clinics will include:
-Use of weighted balls to increase bat speed/power, (swing thru the ball)
-Mini baseballs for hitting (hand/eye coordination, less strikeouts)
-Use of “soft hands gloves”, to help using both hands when catching
-Ladder drills (to improve footwork and balance)
EACH CLINIC WILL BE LIMITED TO 5 PLAYERS, (more reps, which is crucial at all levels!)
The cost of the 5-week clinic is $125. Below is a full list of clinics, along with my contact info. If anyone would like to put your own clinic together with times other than below, please let me know and we can work out the details. If you sign up for more than 1 clinic, you will be discounted $15 per additional clinic.
GIFT CERTICATES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR ANY CLINICS or ONE-on-ONE LESSONS
