On June 12-13, choose Monday or Tuesday, SLI Academy will be conducting hitting clinics for senior players. The all-day clinics are conducted in Denver – Vanderbilt Fields, giving you the option to attend either date. Last year, ten participants attended. The group learned the key components of hitting and driving the ball more effectively. Everyone left with great information, personalized to their needs to be much better hitters and given the opportunity to provide further opportunity to exchange their personal videos for further review. Changing habits can be very difficult so this will help keep the attendees on track for continued improvement. Several of the participants will be attending again this year. Only three players were Scrap Iron members with the rest from Wednesday and Saturday teams. We should be able increase the attendance to 15 to 20 players for each day to improve their skills and, subsequently, their team’s performance. The cost is $250 per player of which $50 will be donated to our Scrap Iron Club. Lunch is included. For additional information and to register, click on the attached website:
