Owls Baseball Announces 2017 Clinic

PRESQUE ISLE, ME - The UMPI Owls Baseball team will host their annual clinic on March 4th, 2017 in Wieden Gymnasium.  

The Clinic will once again feature four different sessions, each designed for a specific skill.  Registration is open to boys and girls in grades 4-12.  Players can register by printing a registration form from the owls website (click here) or by registring online here.

The sessions are as follows:

Session 1—Catchers

 9AM—11AM— Weiden Gymnasium

Players will be introduced to a variety of drills used by the Owls Baseball Program that focus on receiving, blocking, footwork, exchange, and throws. Players must bring their own catcher's gear.

 

Session 2—Pitchers

12PM—2PM— Weiden Gymnasium

The pitching session stresses proper throwing me-chanics that reduce over-use injuries while adding velocity and accuracy. Players will participate in a variety of drills and will have the chance to watch themselves on film with Coach Pankow and/or Coach Saucier to improve mechanics.

 

Session 3-Hitters

2:30PM—4:30 PM— Weiden Gymnasium

Players will participate in a number of hitting drills used by UMPI Baseball to promote good mechanics and proper swing techniques. Players will have a chance to watch themselves on film with Coach Pankow to help improve swing mechanics.  NEW THIS YEAR, players will get a chance to hit off of the new video pitching machine.  A very limited amount of bats (college length and weight) and helmets will be available for use, so players are strongly encouraged to bring their own equipment.

 

Session 4—Fielders

5PM—7PM— Weiden and Gentile Hall

This session will stress basic fielding techniques for both infielders and outfielders, and players will participate in basic fielding drills for both positions that are staples of the Owls Baseball Program.
