South Whidbey Little League baseball, softball clinics begin soon

Registration is open for South Whidbey Little League’s winter baseball and softball clinics.

The sessions are designed for boys and girls between 5 and 14 years old. No previous baseball or softball experience is needed to attend the clinics.

All sessions will be at the Langley Middle School gym on Saturdays from Jan. 21 to Feb. 11. The time the training begins depends on the player’s age: 5 to 8 year olds practice from noon to 1 p.m.; and 9 to 14 year olds play from 1:30 to 3 p.m.

The cost is $20 for all four clinics, and counts toward registration fees for the 2012 Little League season.

Registration forms will be available at the clinics and can be printed from SWLL’s website at

Forms can be mailed to SWLL, PO Box 1431, Freeland, WA 98249.

To play in the 2012 season, player fees are $100, with a $250 maximum per family. Forms can be mailed to SWLL, PO Box 1431, Freeland, WA 98249.

Anyone interested in coaching is invited to attend the clinics, regardless of experience. Volunteer forms will be required, however, which can be found on the league’s website. Helpers must also supply a copy of a valid driver’s license.
