Local youth looking to sharpen up their softball skills before the start of the season will have the chance to attend a clinic tomorrow night (May 17) at 6:30 p.m. at Elwood Dale Park in Shawville.
Jeff Ireland, the President of the Quyon Sports and Recreation Association and one of the organizers of the clinic, explained that the event is free and open to any children aged 7 to 17 registered for either the Shawville or Quyon ball leagues. He added that there is still time to register for the summer leagues of both organizations. He asked that families register their children in advance so that they have an idea of the numbers for each age group (the link to the Facebook event page is available here).
Another clinic was held in Quyon on May 10, and Ireland said that it was a resounding success, with more than 70 kids from both associations in attendance. Ireland thanked all his fellow organizers that made the first clinic a success.
