HYAA Softball Coaches Handbook - All New 2016 Edition

Be sure to check out the updated 2016 Holmdel Softball Coaches Handbook. The guide contains lots of great practice ideas and videos to help coaches understand how we like to teach our players.

HYAA Softball Pitching Clinic

Our HYAA softball pitching clinic is a new program starting in Holmdel in an effort to develop many talented pitchers to support our rec, travel and school programs. This introduction to pitching is the first in a series of progressive pitching clinics HYAA will offer our female athletes. They will run in six or eight week cycles and our goal is to have our players progress through the programs over a nine to twelve month period. There is no obligation to continue and players can drop out at any time. The clinic will be led by Suzanne Hennessey, a former Division 1 pitcher at St. Peterís college and an experienced player and coach. Please see the registration form for more information.

Time To Help One of Our Own

After fighting and recovering from cancer just two years ago, Tim McDonnell, Sr. received the phone no parent ever wants to receive. His son Tim, Jr. while attending Rutgers was struck by a car and placed in a medically induced coma. Now weeks later, Tim faces a long road to recovery, currently in a rehabilitation center showing some signs of hope.

The outpouring of support both from the Rutgers & local communities has been overwhelming but as you might imagine, the family faces mounting medical bills.

A website has been created www.FightforTimmy.com that provides more information as well as accepts donations online. Click here for some additional information.

The McDonnells have been involved in and supported many charities in the past and we are asking everyone's support to now help them in this difficult time.
