School of Baseball & Softball launches in July

NewsPosted by admin Mon, July 04, 2016 19:35:26

This July sees the launch of a new development initiative for baseball and softball in the Midlands. The School of Baseball & Softball (SBS) is a new regional branding that will look to support programmes at clubs, schools, universities and in the wider community.

The long-term aim of the 'School', is to pool together coaching and other resources from a number of local clubs to deliver an exciting menu of baseball and softball development across the region. We hope that this collective approach will improve the reach and scale of delivery, as we look to grow participation in the Midlands as a whole.

Starting this month there will be a SBS pilot initiative – the Junior Pitchers and Catchers Camp, which will be hosted at Western Park, Leicester on selected Sunday afternoons.

With kids breaking up from school during July, the pilot is aiming to provide an ideal school summer holiday baseball activity for both boys and girls aged 6-14.

The camp is free and open to beginners and improvers across the region who are looking to develop themselves as pitchers or catchers.

The dates and times of the camp, are as follows:

Sunday 10th July 1pm-2.30pm
Sunday 24th July 1pm-2.30pm
Sunday 31st July 1pm-2.30pm


Places are limited!

We looking forward to welcoming you to the School of Baseball & Softball this summer!
