Catching Clinic

This registration is to capture information for girls interested in participating in a catcher's clinic this winter with Madie Mikolich, former Rogers varsity catcher and current St. Benedict Blazer.  

Clinic Dates (times are TBD based on interest):

  • December 8 (St. Ben's Catching Coach may attend as well)
  • January 19 & 26
  • February 2 & 16

Cost will be $30 for all 5 dates.  

Catchers should bring their own equipment if they have it.  We will provide full sets of gear for those that don't have their own.  Shin guards are only to be worn when using padded mats.  Fielding masks may be worn instead of catcher's helmets if preferred.  Otherwise, shin guards should not be worn to avoid scratching the gym floors.

Players will need a parent to attend that can help as pitchers and possibly positional players for throws.

Catchers of all ages may be in the same group - up to 6 per group.

We will not be accepting online payments.  You will need to bring your check to the first session or mail it in.

Location:  Middle School West
