Sunday Indoor Pitching Practice

 Hello Spring 2024 Players!

Freedom Softball is excited to offer some indoor pitching sessions before practices officially start in mid March.  We have use of the auxiliary gym at Linton Springs on Sunday mornings.  These sessions are for players who have pitched in the past and want to get a head start on the season.  The sessions are for practice as there is no provided pitching instructor.  A Freedom Softball board member will be present but a parent will need to work with their child during these practice sessions.

Session Details:
Location: Linton Springs Elementary School - Community Room
Dates: Every Sunday in February (may extend into March as well)
Times: There are four time sessions available and will be limited to 6 players per session
8:30 am - 9:30 am
9:35 am - 10:35 am
10:40 am - 11:40 am
11:45 am - 12:45 pm

Your child must be registered for the Spring 2024 season to participate in these sessions.  Parents are required to provide an adult catcher for pitching practice.  Siblings may catch but anyone under 18 must wear full catchers gear (no gear will be provided).  

Depending on the interest levels we may need to consolidate sessions and we are also considering using the space to work on other skills besides pitching.  More details will come once we see how people are interested.

If you are interested in getting an early jump on pitching this season please email fdosoftball.john@gmail.com and kmullini@hotmail.com.  You can check current session availability using this link.
