Free Ripken Baseball Youth Clinic

Hundreds of local children will get a chance to learn baseball with some of the most knowledgeable youth coaches in the country – at no cost.  Prince Automotive in Valdosta is offering the Chevy Youth Baseball Clinic on Friday, April 20th at Vallotton Youth Complex.  It’s one of three such clinics in South Georgia and North Florida.

Coaches from Ripken Baseball will be running the clinic.  The program is derived from the wisdom and skills of baseball’s legendary Ripken family: Cal Ripken, Sr.; Cal Ripken, Jr.; and Bill Ripken.  The staff uses the unique program to teach young players the fundamentals of the game while providing them a memorable learning experience.

Players will break out into age groups and rotate through stations to learn the essentials of hitting, fielding, throwing and more!  Be sure to wear tennis shoes or cleats and bring your glove and bat.  Watch a video here about the clinic to find out everything your child will experience!
 

The clinic is open to children ages 6-14 and to individuals with special needs of all ages.  It is free but space is limited.
Spots will fill on a first-come, first-served basis, and registration will close TWO DAYS before the clinic date.
