Wednesday Softball Pitching Instruction

Queens University Softball Head Coach Melanie Helterbran is offering group pitching instruction at Myers Park Trinity on Wednesday nights this fall season. The series begins tonight, September 10th, and runs through October 8th.

Each session will cost $5.00 per player. They will be conducted at both 5:30-6:00 and 6:00-6:30. Parents are encouraged to attend and catch their pitcher, as well as listen in on the instruction being given. Players should arrive a few minutes early and meet in the grassy area next to Kiser-Chapman Field. The group may move down to the area beyond Founders Field if additional space is needed.

The sessions are for all age groups and skill levels. Girls with any interest in pitching are encouraged to attend. No experience is necessary.

Thanks to Coach Helterbran. MP Softball is grateful for its partnership with Queens University.

Fall Coaches Clinics at MPTLL

Myers Park Trinity Little League has partnered with area high school and middle school coaches and private instructors to offer clinics specifically designed for our youth baseball coaches.  These experienced coaches will discuss practice plans, proper throwing, pitching, fielding and hitting techniques, and most importantly, effective ways to instruct the kids in our age groups.  These clinics are free, and will be offered several times over the next couple of weeks.  The League is strongly encouraging its fall baseball coaches to attend at least one clinic, hopefully more.  The impact our coaches can have on the players of MPTLL will be dramatically improved if our fall coaches can learn and implement a few tips from these coaches.
Coaches participating:
·         Mike Hennessey – Varsity Head Coach – Charlotte Country Day School
·         David Houseton – Varsity Head Coach – Covenant Day School
