SCARSDLE LITTLE LEAGUE PROFESSIONAL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS for 1St THROUGH 8th GRADES
REGISTRATION IS OPEN
For 5th grade and older Spring Travel and Atlantic League Tryouts will take place on November 9 and 16, 2014
Scarsdale Little League is excited to offer professional training and development clinics again this fall. The clinics will consist of five hour and a quarter sessions taught by former professional and top-level college baseball players committed to instructing children of all interest, skill, and grade levels.
The fall training and development sessions will once again be in partnership with the New York Nine, (http://newyorknine.org/), a nationally recognized, premier baseball program that prides itself on developing student athletes. The NY9’s elite group of professional instructors is led by Ian Millman, an MLB scout for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and former professional. Ian and his team have helped hundreds of players secure college scholarships and sign professional baseball contracts.
These sessions are for children of all levels, including those who have never played organized baseball. ALL CHILDREN ARE ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE. There is no prerequisite for having played in the Scarsdale Little League. Participants will receive coaching that will match their ability and interest.
The sessions will be fast-paced and action-packed, including instructional drills run at a professional practice. Parents and coaches are encouraged to observe the sessions to learn the skills, drills, and overall approach.
Cost: $100 for all 5 sessions, plus the $15 town fee for field usage
When: Thursdays, beginning September 11 and running for five weeks through October 16 (skip September 25 due to Rosh Hashanah).
1st through 3rd grades: 4:15 to 5:30 PM
4th through 8th grades: 5:30 to 7:00PM
Note that the times may shift a little earlier in late September/early October.
Where: Crossway Field 3 (main SLL field with the scoreboard along Mamaroneck Ave)
Rainout Dates, if necessary: October 23 and 30
All players must arrive 15 minutes early and come dressed in baseball/sweat pants and cleats, and bring a baseball glove, hat, bat (if you have one), and water bottle. No shorts. Players will warm up and then move from station to station in timed sessions. It is important that players show up on time. Mark all equipment with your players name on it. Parents and Coaches are encouraged to stay to learn the skills, drills, and overall approach.
Note that tryouts for 5th grade and older for Spring Travel and Atlantic League will take place on Sunday, November 9 and Sunday, November 16 from 4:00-9:00 pm. Shifting registration earlier allows for teams to be formed early and for travel teams to begin winter and early spring workouts/practices.
Registration will open for tryouts in late September. Specific times for designated age groups will be announced at a later date.
The clinics are a great way to keep your child's baseball skills sharp in anticipation of the tryouts.
Scarsdale Little League is committed to providing the best instruction for all interest, skill, and grade levels here in town.
