High School Warm-ups with Coach John Cooley
Back by popular demand, Coach Cooley is once again offering a warm-up camp for girls trying out for their high school teams in Spring 2017.
Advanced skills will be covered in throwing, catching and hitting. We’ll focus on hitting drills to include directional bunting and hitting to the opposite field. You’ll hit off the tee, side toss, front toss, heavy balls and batting cage. You will also be introduced to drag bunting and slapping from the left side. Fielding will focus primarily on fielding posture and feet placement for fielding, outfield blocking techniques, quick release once ball is caught, and footwork to expand range of coverage. Also expect a healthy dose of throwing drills, including the outfield crow hop, infield cross step, lobbing, push pass, dart throws, back hand toss and throwing to increase ball speed. We'll work on catching with two hand target / catch along with feet placement for catching at each base to include home plate.
Dates: Saturdays, February 4, 11, and 18
Time: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Cost: $90 per player (one-time fee for all sessions)
Note: This is NOT a beginner's clinic; serious players are encouraged to register. Girls registering for this clinic should already have solid fundamentals in hitting, throwing, and fielding, and they should be prepared for nine hours of hard work.
