FHS Track & Field
Pitch clinic offered
Free Pitching Clinic offered at FMS beginning Jan. 7
The Frankenmuth High School Youth Pitching and Catching Clinic will begin early next year.
The clinic will begin Monday, January 7, and will be held every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday through Thursday, March 14.
The free clinic will be held in the Rittmueller Middle School balcony beginning at 6:30pm. Each date will be broken into two, 45-minute sessions: 6:30- 7:15pm and 7:15-8pm.
Former FHS girls’ varsity Coach Joe Chowaniec is the clinic’s lead instructor. He will be joined by current FHS varsity Coach Brad Walraven, some members of the Lady Eagle varsity pitching staff and Frankenmuth Youth Softball coaches and parents.
“Girls may throw one day a week or all three days if they want,” Chowaniec said. “About 20-25 girls took advantage of this clinic last season.”
Catchers are encouraged to attend to work on their skills. Parents are also welcome to participate or observe. Pitchers should have their own catchers.
The clinic, which has operated over the winter months for the past 20 years, is open for girls in elementary school through high school, experienced or just learning the art of pitching.
Girls in seventh and eighth grades must pre-register as coaches are only allowed to work with four players at a time.
To pre-register or for more information, contact Chowaniec at email@example.com. The clinic is co-sponsored by the Frankenmuth Softball Association Youth Baseball-Softball Organization.
