BASEBALL AND BONDING SUMMER PITCHING AND CATCHING CLINICS
In partnership with Weston's Play Ball For All initiative and the Baseball Advisory Council, we will be hosting a series of fun and informative clinics this summer.
These free clinics will be led by our Weston teen mentors and will be a great way to learn and grow your game from these Little League alumni. The clinics will be offered to all LL levels to include grades 2,3, Minors and Majors players. All sessions will be designed in small group size and will adhere to all state and local covid-19 wellness protocols.
