LANSING, Ill. (January 18, 2019) – “With the baseball season quickly approaching, I would like to invite you to TF South for the Future Rebel Baseball Clinic,” begins a letter from Matt Tiffy to prospective TF South ball players. The clinic offers players as young as six years old an opportunity to receive hands-on training from TF South coaches and players.
Tiffy believes the clinic can help young athletes develop skills that they will use in their immediately upcoming seasons. Just as important, it can give them a vision of what it’s like to play at the high school level.
Instructors will provide both hitting and defense instruction, including throwing, fielding ground balls, and catching fly balls. Participants will be given the opportunity to choose a position to practice during the camp: pitching, infield, outfield, or catching. Each player will receive individual instruction and ample hitting time that includes complete instruction in hitting, focusing on proper techniques and fundamentals and using various drills and hitting equipment.
The Future Rebel Baseball Clinic focuses on two age groups: 6–10-year-olds and 11–14-year-olds. Camp begins at 3:00pm on Saturday, March 2. Last-minute registration will still be available at 2:30pm that day, but Tiffy encourages attendees to register early, as space is limited and only the first 50 registrants will receive a t-shirt.
Cost for the clinic is $35.
