It goes without saying that the better a player is at a sport, the more likely he or she is going to enjoy it. There's nothing like making a great play in the field or getting a good hit or pitching really well to make a child feel good about themselves. To that end, Westport Little League, in conjunction with IST Baseball Headquarters, introduced a baseball curriculum several years ago. The idea behind this curriculum is to try to make sure that every player at a given age level has mastered certain skills appropriate for their age. At the beginning of each baseball season, we will introduce all coaches to the curriculum and give them a set of drills they can use with their team in order to help players master the skills appropriate for their age.
In addition to introducing the skills through the coaches at practices, IST Baseball Headquarters will be offering an 8 week after school skills clinic this Spring for players in the kindergarten through 5th grade years. These clinics will be held at Coleytown Elementary School, Greens Farms Elementary School, Kings Highway Elementary School, Saugatuck Elementary School, and Long Lots Elementary School. Each week registered elementary school players will be picked up at their school's designated indoor pick-up location at dismissal by I.S.T.’s Staff. The players will then be walked out to the adjacent fields where the clinic will be conducted. Players will be fully supervised at all times by multiple instructors For more details on this process and the program as a whole, or to customize an after school program that fits your schedule please email I.S.T./Glenn Katz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
