Tips from fastpitch experts

World’s best to conduct softball clinics

Some of Surrey’s young softball players will get the opportunity next month to take some tips from the world’s best.

As part of the 2011 Scotiabank Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship, some of the world’s top-ranked national teams – including Canada, USA, Japan, Australia and Venezuela – will conduct clinics July 8-14. The clinics are open to boys and girls, ages eight to 16.

In addition to getting on-field instruction, youngsters will also have the opportunity to hear the national team members’ stories of perseverance and dedication to their sport.

Three different packages are available. The Ultimate Package, which costs $195 plus HST, includes one full-day Team Canada clinic and four half-day international team clinics; a Team Canada-only clinic, which includes the one full-day session, is also offered for $95.

International team clinics, which are $45 plus HST each, are also on the schedule, with four different half-day sessions planned.

The Canadian Open runs July 9-17, with games at Softball City in South Surrey, Sunnyside Park in Surrey and Cloverdale Athletic Park.
