Free Instructional Softball Clinic
We will be running a free softball instructional clinic for our 7, 8, and
9 year old girls this Fall starting in September. The clinic will be on Tuesday evenings
(5:30 p.m.) and Sunday mornings (9:30 a.m.) at Cross Farms field #2 . The clinic will work
on all aspects of the game with a focus on having fun while they learn the proper techniques
of fielding, throwing, batting, catching and base running.
We ask that any girl signing up for this clinic try to attend as many practices
as possible and bring their own bat, glove and helmet (extras will be provided). If you
are only able to make one of the two practices a week due to conflict in schedules we are
open to having your child attend one day a week. Anyone interested should contact Anthony
Vanario at email@example.com. Emails should
include child's name, age and which day or both days you plan to attend.
Fall Softball Update
Our 10-13 year old fall softball programs were unable to get enough participation
to field full teams and therefore we will be issuing you a full refund. If your daughter
is still interested in playing softball this Fall, the Hazlet softball league will accept
registrations through the end of next week. The
form can be submitted to
HYAL or you
can use Hazlet's
online registration form.
We are currently working on finalizing a team at the 7, 8, and 9 year old
level so if you registered in this age group the coach will be reaching out to you in the
next few days. You will be required to register in the Hazlet league directly (please do
so by next week) but all girls at this age group will play for a Holmdel team/coach.
Parents can contact the HYAA office with any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your support and we’ll see you in the Spring.
