Softball Skill Building Clinics

With top notch guidance, batting, fielding and pitching clinics are an excellent way to improve a softball player's skills. 

Instructors include high school coaches and players, professional instructors and experienced local coaches.  In addition to batting, fielding and pitching clinics, TCGS can sponsor clinics so players can learn base-running and sliding, catching and other specific elements of the game.
