The one-day clinic is open to any and all area girls from the 2nd through 8th grade who want to learn or improve in the sport of softball.

The clinic will feature instruction on hitting, bunting, fielding, throwing, catching, pitching and base running, among other things, with local coaches on hand to share their knowledge.

The cost of the clinic is $20 if you pre-register, and $25 at the door. All proceeds benefit the Bulldog softball program, which continues to improve as the sport grows in Sandpoint.
