Shoreline Little League Winter Baseball Player Clinics



Shoreline Little League is excited to announce that signups are available for the Winter Baseball Player Clinics. These clinics are free for players with a paid registration for the upcoming 2016 season looking to participate in the AAA (Minors) or Majors baseball divisions (typically ages 9-12, though 8 year olds trying out for AAA are welcome).

Is there a cost?

No. As in years’ past, player clinics are offered free of charge to players with a paid registration for the coming season. Registration for one of the four clinic dates is required.

Where and When?

The clinics will be held indoors at the Spartan Gym, located in the East side of the Shoreline Center, at 202 Northeast 185th St, Shoreline, WA.

There will be 4 clinics, held on the following Saturday’s from 12 PM to 3:30 PM:

NOTE Placement Day (formerly known as tryouts) for Minors and Majors will be February 6th.

Clinics for softball will be held separately. Clinics for younger baseball divisions (tee ball, coach pitch, and kid pitch) will be held towards the end of March.

Who can participate?

The January clinics are open to all Shoreline Little League players with a paid registration for the coming 2016 season who will be seeking placement to play at either the AAA (Minors) or Majors divisions. This restricts clinic participation to players that are league age 9 to league age 12, though 8 year old players are welcome to attend if they will be attending the placement day in hopes of playing AAA (Minor) baseball.

How many players may attend each session? 

Space is limited to 32 players per clinic.  This is to ensure the safety of the players and to maximize the time available for the practice and instruction. The demand for clinic spots is usually very high.

What will the Clinics cover?

The clinics will cover throwing mechanics, fielding mechanics, hitting mechanics, and conditioning. This year’s clinics will be fast-paced and highly structured to maximize each player’s opportunity for skill repetition. The smaller number of available spots means that players will work in small groups to provide more skill work, and to limit time spent in line awaiting a turn.

How do I reserve a spot? 

Registration for the player clinics will be exclusively through ShorelineLittleLeague.com. You will need to use the same user name and password that you used when you registered for the upcoming season. Because space is limited, you will be able to sign up for only one clinic at a time. Depending on demand, you may be able to attend more than one clinic, but our goal is to include as many players as possible.

As a courtesy to all players, if you should have to cancel after you have received a confirmation, please contact us immediately so we can make the space available for another interested player.

What to Bring/Wear

Players should come ready to play ball and have fun! They must have a baseball glove, and can optionally bring their own batting helmet, bat, and batting gloves. Each player should also bring water, though a drinking fountain is available just outside the gym area.

Because the clinics will be indoors, players should wear athletic attire (shorts are OK) and a ball cap, (baseball pants are not required). They should wear gym shoes, or turf shoes (cleats are not allowed).
