Pitching Clinic/Catching Clinic
Monday’s- 1/6 - 1/27
Youth Clinic-Ages (7-12) - 6:00PM - 7:00PM
This camp will be presented by the entire URI Staff, Assistant Pitching Coach Luke Demko, as well as former URI Player Zach Zaneski (who is now in Triple A with the Rangers). Current players will also be working at the clinics.
The pitching clinic focuses on throwing fundamentals as well as pitching mechanics. Instructors work specific drills each week to improve the mechanics of the pitcher including balance, arm slot, and direction of the body, to enhance the location and consistency of pitches.
This catching clinic will afford catchers a great opportunity to work with URI Head Coach Jim Foster Zack Zaneski, and current catchers on the 2014 team. Working with players in a small group, we will focus on individual development such as proper blocking and throwing techniques, as well as controlling a game from behind the plate.
The Hitting Clinic will give you the chance to work with URI Hitting Coach Raphael Cerrato, along with Assistant Coach Luke Abraham. There will also be current players helping out. The fundamentals of hitting will be taught to youth hitters, with advanced mental and mechanical fundamentals being taught to the advanced groups.
