<see ful lmsg in email/AYBSA clinic page> Memorial weekend pitching practice poll: https://forms.gle/piPrTDFMh7t1o63M6

Hello Softball Pitcher Families and Team Coaches Please let me know when works best for the clinic practice session this weekend? We can hold the pitching practice session as long as we'll have AYBSA coaches. We may also need to combine the 10U and 12U groups depending on # coaches available. (FYI, this weekend we do NOT have a hired pitching coach, just us parent coaches to help keep our learning pitchers going in their technique development through practice time :-)
