The Illinois Valley Community College softball team will host the 19th annual IVCC Eagles Softball Clinic Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 17 and 18 in IVCC’s gym.

Coaches and current players will offer softball instruction in hitting, bunting, fielding, throwing, base running and communication.

There will be two sessions each day. On Saturday, participants in grades 2-4 will meet from 8 to 10:30 a.m. and participants in grades 5-8 will meet from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

On Sunday, grades 2-4 will meet 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and grades 5-8 from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Cost of the clinic is $30 per player and includes five hours of instruction and a clinic T-shirt. If a player can only come one day, the cost is $20. 

All players should bring a glove and tennis shoes (no spikes or cleats allowed). If a player has her own bat, she is allowed to bring it. Please make sure all items have the player’s name on them for identification purposes.
