The Cotuit Kettleers Summer Baseball Clinics offer a balanced program of fun and instruction in the game of baseball. It is a co-ed program for children ages 6 -12 who want to improve their baseball or softball skills. Players are grouped according to age and ability. Instruction includes proper techniques for stretching and warm-up, throwing, fielding, base running, and hitting. Team spirit and sportsmanship.
Your child will be instructed by members of this year’s Cotuit Kettleers, coaches and players from leading NCAA baseball programs across the country. These individuals have been selected as Clinic leaders based on their formal training and practical experience in youth sports coaching, their dedication to youth baseball and their personal accomplishments in the game.
Group instruction at skill stations will be given each day. At times, different games and activities designed to keep participants interest will be incorporated into the clinic schedule. A scrimmage baseball game generally concludes the day’s activities.
All children from both clinic LOCATIONS (Cotuit and Centerville) meet at Lowell Park for clinic Fridays to practice skills on the Kettleers field. Halfway through the day the campers will slip-n-slide with the players and coaches. Siblings are invited to slide. (Please pack a towel.) At the end of the Friday session, children are given a complimentary t-shirt. All children should be picked up at Lowell Park at 11:30 AM promptly.
Campers enrolled in Kettleers Clinics are invited with their families to CLINIC NIGHTS at Lowell Park. Plan to arrive at the park 30 minutes before game time to talk with the players on the field and get autographs. Then kids and families join the team on the field for opening ceremonies. The dates for the 2023 Clinic Nights are as follows:
1) Week (1): June 26th (Monday)
2) Week (2): July 5th (Wednesday)
3) Week (3): July 10th (Monday)
