THIS COULD BE YOUR BEST SEASON EVER!
The spring season is right around the corner, and what you do between now and the beginning of your spring season is what will determine how good of a season you will have behind the plate.
As any catcher or coach will tell you, team practices are not enough for catchers. It’s very difficult to find the practice reps you need during team practices.
That means that catchers need to be putting in the extra reps, often on their own, to get better.
How do you know what to work on?
Catcher University’s Winter Catching Clinic will do two things: 1) Teach and train you to help your skills improve at the clinic, and 2) Equip you drills to continue developing your skills long after the clinic is over.
This clinic will be coached by Matt Williams (Duke, Chicago Cubs MiLB) and Jason Haniger (Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh Pirates Draft Pick). Together, they will offer what they have learned as multi-year starters at the Major D1 levels, professional baseball, and as coaches to help each catcher make this their best season yet behind the plate.
