Lemont softball program to host youth clinics
With spring right around the corner, the Lemont High School softball program will host two youth clinics to help aspiring softball players develop their skills for the upcoming season. Head coach Christine Traina’s
program will host a hitting clinic from 12:30-2 p.m. on Saturday, January 19, and a pitching clinic from 12:30-2 p.m. on Saturday, February 2.
Intended for players ages nine and older, the January 19 hitting camp will feature Joliet Junior College coach Emily Marino
, who will provide tips, technique and instruction. Marino ranks among the all-time leaders in several offensive categories at the University of Florida. The cost for the hitting clinic is $10, and may be paid at the door. From 2-3 p.m., Marino will offer optional individual video analyses for $20 per player.
The cost for the February 2 pitching clinic also is $10, and may be paid at the door.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Lemont softball program, an annual title contender in the South Suburban Conference.
Both clinics will be conducted in Lemont High School’s Field House, which is accessible off of Julia Street on the southwest side of campus.
