Free Softball Pitching Clinics have begun

CYA Softball Pitching Clinics

When: Sundays, 3:00pm - 4:30pm

Where: Brookfield Elementary School

Cost: Free! 

No experience necessary!  Pitching is the lifeblood of softball and it is never too early or too late to learn.  Even if your daughter hasn't shown an interest yet, please consider encouraging her to attend.

Unfortunately, due to safety concerns, we will not be offering catcher training this season.  See below for the safety protocols/procedures we will be following during the clinics.

All ages welcome.  Pitchers must be registered CYA Softball players.  Please bring your own catcher -- catchers can be a parent, sibling, teammate, or friend.

First clinic is Sunday August 30, then weekly starting Sunday September 13. [No clinic Sunday September 6]

Instructor: Larry Jeter, experienced travel coach and private instructor.  He has been teaching Chantilly kids for many years and loves the sport.

Safety protocols/procedures:

  • Masks should be worn by all parties to/from the field.
  • All parties will receive a temperature check before entering the field of play.  If reading is 99.5 degrees or above, party may choose to rest in a shaded spot for 5-10 minutes and get re-checked.  
  • As they arrive, players should choose a post on the inside of the fence to put their gear/water bottle/etc.  Dugouts should be avoided.
  • Masks may be removed while on the field, as long as 10 feet is maintained between all non-family parties.
  • Coaches will wear masks when 10 feet of distance cannot be maintained.
  • Players will be provided with a set of sanitized 11” or 12” balls that only they will use during that session.  Or, you are welcome to bring your own.
  • Bring your own water – no shared water will be provided.

Fall 2020

Registration is closed for the season. 

 

CYA Softball Update:

  • Safety is our number one priority.  As you can imagine, the Corona virus has caused us to take a pause and do some serious, in depth analysis and planning to see how we can provide a safe program for the kids
  • We have reviewed the guidlines issues by the CDC, Virginia Governor and some Softball Associations. We are able to extract some best practices from those sources.
  • We are committed to bringing you a fall softball season, but it will be modified to mitigate risks with player safety as the highest priority. 
  • National (NCAA), State and Local organizations have declared diamond sports as the least risky of our sports.
  • CYA softball program details were email out to the registrants of the past few seasons.
