2018 Winter Clinic Registration is Now Open.
Hey, Eden Prairie Get Your Game Right!
Registration is open for Eden Prairie Baseball Association’s 2018 Winter Baseball Clinic. This winter’s clinic will provide an instruction-based format focusing on: throwing mechanics, infield defense, outfield defense, hitting approach and mechanics, position development, as well as full team defensive drills. The EPBA Winter Clinic is open to children currently in grades 1-6 and will be held at the EPHS Dome on Sunday afternoon starting on January 7, 2018. We have designed the first half of the clinic sessions to skill-development and instruction while the last half of the clinic sessions will be devoted to a pick up baseball league, where full games will be played allowing the learned skills to be put to use.
We are pleased to have great Instructors: Along with Coach Andrew Phillips and many of the Eden Prairie High School varsity players, EPBA has secured some additional instructors that will help bring this year’s clinic to the next level!
