Learn Softball Skills from the Champs!

The Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) Saints Softball team will hold two clinics in the Gresham campus gymnasium, located at 26000 SE Stark St.

The first clinic, Jan. 30, will focus on hitting, throwing, fielding, pitching and catching. The clinic for ages 5 – 11 will be held 9 a.m. – 12 noon, following by a clinic for 12 – 18 year olds, 1 – 4 p.m.

The second clinic, an advanced camp, is scheduled for Feb. 20. Session one will focus on pitching and catching, 9 – 12 noon, following by hitting and short game, 1 – 4 p.m. (Separate registration and entry fee required if participant signs up for both sessions.)

The cost for each clinic is $50, payable to Mt. Hood Softball.
This is a chance for softball players to sharpen their skills and learn from the two-time Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) champions, and the conference’s coach of the year, Meadow McWhorter.
