South London Baseball to Host
Toronto Blue Jays Instructional Clinic
May 27, 2017
South London Baseball Association will be hosting a Toronto Blue Jays Honda Instructional Clinic on Saturday, May 27 at Citywide Sports Park for all interested players aged 8 (or turning 8) to 14.
Qualified Blue Jays instruction staff will be on hand to teach young players (both male and female) all the necessary and fundamental baseball skills one should know in a fun and structured atmosphere.
The clinic will be four hours in length. During the clinic, players will rotate through drills that will deal with skills such as: hitting, throwing, fielding, pitching and base running. We’ll also invite coaches and parents to come on the field to observe and ask the Jays instructors questions.
Each registered clinic attendee should bring their glove, bat, and helmet along with a drink and snacks. We recommend that you arrive 15 to 30 minutes before the clinic begins in order to check in at our registration table.
The fee for the clinic is $55.00 (plus H.S.T.) per player and the instructional sessions will commence at 9:00 a.m. and run until 1:00 p.m. All registered players will also receive a free Blue Jays hat, tee shirt and manual for participating in the clinic.

The clinic will be held outdoors at City Wide Park. In the event of rain, the Jays Instructional Clinic will proceed as scheduled, with the event moving indoors to the Farquharson Arena (411 Tecumseh Avenue).In the event of rain, an advertisement will be made on the South London Baseball website the morning of the event.
The Blue Jays are keenly aware of the need for local associations (like South London Baseball) to raise funds to offset some of the rising costs they are experiencing. Therefore, South London Baseball will receive $25 per participant for hosting the instructional clinic.
Not only are the Instructional Clinics an excellent fundraising opportunity for local baseball associations, these clinics will also compliment the local association’s player development program. It’s a win win event for everyone involved.
