Youth Baseball Clinics in Chicago
During each session, we will introduce various team-building exercises and concepts, in addition to the necessary baseline physical skills all aspiring baseball players need: defense, hitting, and pitching.
Throwing the baseball correctly is the foundation of playing good defense. Proper throwing mechanics increases a player's velocity and accuracy and prevents injuries to the elbow and shoulder. Throwing will be a major emphasis for each clinic, as well as infield technique, outfield positioning, and proper footwork.
We'll teach proper hitting techniques and fundamentals, including stance, stride, balance, extension. We will also explain plate discipline and selection and demonstrate proper bunting techniques.
Learning proper pitching mechanics will increase velocity and accuracy while reducing the risk of injury. We will introduce the key fundamentals to the full wind-up, giving each participant the confidence that they can pitch effectively and safely during league play.
