Jr. Chargers Softball Fielding and Hitting Clinic

By Heidi Peterson, 01/18/21, 12:00PM CST


The Jr. Chargers Softball held a successful softball clinic to start off the new year.

The Jr. Chargers Softball Club held the first softball clinic of the year on Saturday, January 2 for the U8, U10, U12, and U14 age groups.  

Former Chicago Bandit, Alex Booker, visited the clubhouse to share her knowledge and love of the game with our Jr. Charger girls. 

For those who may not know, the Chicago Bandits are a part of the National Pro Fastpitch League. Alex played four years at the University of Illinois and went on to play for the Chicago Bandits upon graduation, where they won the National Championship. Following her playing career, she has coached softball at all levels, from youth up to college. She continues to share that passion for the game through hosting camps for programs like ours.

The clinic was broken out into two sessions, a defense-focused session and a hitting focused session. The girls were welcomed to attend either one of the sessions or both. 

The Jr. Charger Softball girls worked hard completing all the drills and had fun learning new ways to view and enjoy the game of softball.  We are very pleased with the successful turn out and with a great start to the new season! 

Go Jr. Chargers!
