LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College softball team will host their annual fall elite clinic on Saturday, September 22 at Lafayette Street Field from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 

The clinic is geared towards the serious high school player (Grades 9-12) and costs $100. The Bates coaching staff and players will provide individual instruction focusing on defense, hitting and game strategy. Skill specific pitching and catching instruction is included. 

Players will be broken up into age and ability level for group work and during the games. Space is limited and the clinic is filled on a first come, first serve basis.

Each player must bring her own softball equipment. Players should bring a glove, bat, cleats, hat, and helmet if they have one and any other equipment they feel necessary to compete.

The clinic will go on rain or shine and the Gray Cage will be used if there is inclement weather.
